Despite the name, occupational therapy is not only used to learn work-related skills. It helps you fine-tune or re-learn tasks you need for daily activities. Yes, this may include work-related tasks but it also includes dressing, cooking, cleaning and other home-related tasks.

Divine Savior Healthcare’s occupational therapists can evaluate your home and make recommendations to accommodate your physical needs and safety.
