Frequently Asked Questions
Occupational therapy strives to empower individuals to reach independence when recovering from the effects of a medical complication or event. These specialized professionals help to engage patients in getting back to their activities of daily living (such as bathing, dressing, meal preparation, and medication management) and reintroduce them back to their prior environments. Occupational therapy provides strategies and training through a therapeutic person centered approach in which both mental and physical barriers are addressed to help patients reach their goals.
The length of each of your therapy sessions will depend on your functional abilities and overall clinical needs. You will work together with your therapist and interdisciplinary team to determine what is best for you. We also offer therapy at different times of the day allowing for both morning and afternoon treatments as necessary.
We want you to be comfortable during your therapy with us! We recommend you wear loose fitting clothes that allow room for movement and exercise. Sweatpants, T-shirts, and other athletic apparel are all appropriate as you may be moving, bending, and increasing your heart rate during a session. We also recommend non-slip shoes that are supportive.
Most insurance companies offer coverage for therapy services, but the level of coverage can vary greatly. We recommend talking to one of our admissions and marketing directors or therapy directors at any of our communities to best determine what insurance would cover. They can help guide you to what your best payment options will be.
When you first arrive at our facility we will discuss preference for therapy times with you. We will then have a member from our therapy team come and locate you in the facility in advance of when it is time for your therapy session. This allows you to enjoy your stay and relax while our teams maintain your daily schedule. We try very hard to work around any events, life enrichment activities, meals, etc. so your therapy does not conflict with your social experience within the community.
