> Occupational Therapy
Woldenberg’s Occupational Therapy team provides excellent services to individuals experiencing neurological, orthopedic, and general medical conditions that impede self care independence. These conditions include stroke, Parkinson’s disease, joint replacements, and general muscle weakness due to debilitating diseases such as congestive heart failure and pneumonia as well as many other diagnoses.
Individualized Occupational Therapy goals are developed to work toward independence in bathing, grooming, toileting and home care through strengthening, flexibility, cognitive/perceptual training, fine motor coordination and participation in activities of daily living and instrumental activities of daily living (cooking, cleaning and finance management). Therapy techniques leading to remediation of deficits and/or compensatory strategies such as adaptive equipment use are utilized to meet these Occupational Therapy goals.
Individualized physical therapy goals include ambulation, transfers, wheelchair skills, bed mobility and accessing home and community through mobility training, stability building, strengthening, balance, coordination and participation in activities that encourage normal daily function.
