Occupational Therapy

Headwaters' occupational therapists assess the function and adaptive behaviour of patients, and provide treatment and prevention measures for disorders which affect function in the areas of self-care, productivity and leisure. Occupational Therapy assessment and treatment helps to promote, develop and maintain function and independence in daily living.

Adult patients with impaired functioning due to physical injury or illness such as stroke or osteoarthritis can benefit from Occupational Therapy. Interventions are directed toward physical function, sensory retraining, activities of daily living, perceptual/cognitive functions, vocational adjustment, emotional adjustment, splinting and equipment prescription (wheelchairs, assistive devices).

Outpatient Occupational Therapy services are available for splinting only. A physician referral is required.
