Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is designed to help patients with temporary or permanent loss of function regain independence and quality of life. Occupational therapists specialize in caring for people with physical, developmental or emotional challenges by helping them improve their ability to perform daily activities, as well as recommend ways for patients to adapt their environment to enhance independence. Therapists assist patients with everything from eating, bathing and dressing to using a computer, getting in and out of the car, or running errands.

Comprehensive occupational therapy

Our occupational therapists will encourage you as you relearn or adapt the skills you need to perform daily activities and achieve as much independence as possible. Occupational therapy services include the following:

  • Activities of Daily Living Training
  • Joint Protection Education/Energy Conservation Education
  • Post Surgical Rehabilitation
  • Hand Therapy and Splint Fabrication
  • Stroke and Neurological Recovery
  • Total Joint Rehabilitation
  • Ergonomics

At Carlisle Regional Medical Center, our occupational therapists work closely with patients and family members in developing a care plan to ensure each patient’s unique needs are being met, and that caregivers are well prepared to support patients in their recovery. Therapists also work with community organizations and outreach programs to help coordinate appropriate care plans whenever necessary.
