Occupational therapy (OT) at St. Charles is shown to help adults across Long Island achieve and maintain independence despite temporary or lifelong impairments.
Our team of occupational therapists are dedicated to helping patients with orthopedic and neurologic injuries to regain their physical and/or cognitive function and focus on the upper extremity (arm).
Our occupational therapists and certified hand therapists can provide specialized treatment and fabricate splints required during recovery from hand injury or surgery.
In addition, our occupational therapists work with patients on "Activities of Daily Living" (ADLs).
Examples of Activities of Daily Living include:
- Time Management
- Critical Thinking
Because each person’s life is as unique as the challenges they face, our licensed occupational therapists customize every treatment plan and help you stay motivated.
At St. Charles, we also coordinate OT services with physical therapy and speech therapy to better serve those who need comprehensive care. This approach, known as a multidisciplinary approach, is utilized in our:
- Outpatient Stroke Specialty Program
- Parkinson’s Disease Program
With a goal of offering the best occupational therapy on Long Island, St. Charles has earned accreditation in outpatient rehabilitation from CARF International, the global leader in rehabilitation accreditation, and has maintained this recognition since 2008.
