Occupational Therapy

At Mee Memorial Healthcare System, we want you to have the utmost quality of life. By meeting with an occupational therapist at our hospital, you are taking the next step to improve your health and enjoy a better quality of life. Sometimes occupational therapy is used alone, but it is often combined with physical therapy, speech therapy, social works, care managers, and other rehabilitative services so you can get back to your every life and enjoy it.

What Is Occupational Therapy?

Anything that is a typical everyday activity that you currently are unable to perform, your occupational therapist will be at your side to help. Occupational therapists are specialists who assist patients in returning to their daily routine so they may live as independently as possible. For example, if you have a disability that prevents you from reaching your hands above your head to wash or comb your hair, that is one activity your occupational therapist will help you learn how to do again. But that’s not where it ends. An occupational therapist can also help you participate in the activities you find more meaningful, whether that’s cooking, shopping, or socializing.
