Occupational Therapy

RVNAhealth occupational therapists (OTs) help people perform everyday tasks in order to live full, productive lives.  Occupational therapists are skilled health care professionals who use research and scientific evidence to ensure their interventions are effective. With strong knowledge of a person’s psychological, physical, emotional, and social makeup, occupational therapy practitioners can evaluate how your condition (or risk for one) is affecting your body and mind, using a holistic perspective.

RVNAhealth offers occupational therapy in patients’ homes and at the RVNAhealth Rehabilitation & Wellness Center in Ridgefield, CT.

What Does an Occupational Therapist Do?

Occupational therapists may help individuals recovering from an injury or stroke regain lost skills or support older adults experiencing physical or cognitive changes by prescribing a custom treatment that may include exercise or hands on treatment. RVNAhealth’s occupation therapists assess ‘occupation’, which doesn’t have to be a job!  ‘Occupation’ in the sense of therapy is anything that is meaningful to you and your daily life…activities such as gardening, dressing, showering safely, cooking, watching the grandkids, or back to work!  If you want it back, occupational therapists will help you get there!
