Occupational Therapy: Helping you age in place!

What does an Occupational Therapist (OT) do?  OTs specialize in recommendations for home modifications to improve safety including for special conditions like low vision.  They are knowledgeable in a wide range of equipment to make caring for yourself easier.

Are you having trouble bending over to put on shoes and socks? Ask an OT!  Do you have difficulty getting in and out of your bathtub? An OT has a solution!  Occupational Therapists also specialize in treatment of shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand weakness and pain using a variety of manual therapy techniques, therapeutic exercises, and even aquatic therapy.  Occupational therapists can help with memory issues using strategies to manage daily tasks and remain independent. 

Our occupational therapists have extensive continuing education in the area of neurological and post stroke rehab with courses taken at the Rehab Institute of Chicago, a leader in innovative and current research techniques.  Our OT’s use current concepts in rehabilitation and state of the art equipment to help you get back to living, working, and enjoying all that beautiful northern Michigan has to offer!

The Grand Traverse Pavilions Wellness Center Staff are your “aging in place” specialists!  Our Occupational Therapist‘s (OT’s) specialize in helping you stay in your home and independent as long as possible. 

Just ask your doctor for a prescription for Occupational Therapy and call 231-932-3172 to set up an appointment.
