Occupational therapy helps you regain the skills you need to perform the meaningful activities of daily life: self-care, leisure, recreation and work functions.
Fairmont Care therapists are highly trained in guiding you to once again do what you want and need to do. They focus on the big picture: your abilities, the task to be performed, and the locale where the task takes place. With their gentle guidance and encouragement, you will learn how to increase strength and coordinate, improve concentration, and build effective coping strategies.
There are many ways that our occupational therapists can increase your confidence and belief in yourself and your own abilities. Whether it’s getting around with crutches, performing regular activities with one arm while the other is healing, implementing physical changes to your home or work place or more, you’ll learn to transition more easily back to your day-to-day life.
As you master the skills and strategies you’ll need when your stay with us is over, your occupational therapist will measure changes in your performance as well as your level of satisfaction with how well you’re doing. You will go home with a clear plan of how to achieve your next goals successfully.
