An Occupational Therapist is an expert in movement with the goal of increasing a patient’s independence in daily living activities including dressing, bathing, personal care, eating and home making. Occupational Therapists also provide specialized assistance in learning or relearning skills, stress management, and treatment for hand/ wrist injuries. Occupational Therapists may also suggest adaptive equipment to help you regain your independence or fabricate custom splints to aid your recovery.

A Speech Language Pathologist assists patients in maximizing their communication skills. This is often achieved by helping you increase your understanding of verbal and written language; increasing the expression of thought, both verbally and in writing; increasing cognitive reorganization for memory and problem solving; and helping you adjust to hearing loss. Speech Language Pathologists also help their patients enhance swallowing ability with practice in compensatory strategies and nutrition management for adequate oral intake.
