Long Island Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists work to help you regain your activities of daily living

When an individual is recovering from a traumatic injury, stroke, orthopedic surgery, cardiac event or an extended hospital stay, it is often difficult to carry out basic activities of daily living, such as dressing, showering or cooking.  Even getting into and out of a bed, chair or car can be a challenge.

At Gurwin, our Occupational Therapy program works together with other rehabilitation disciplines to create a comprehensive treatment program that will get our patients on the road to independence as quickly as possible, enabling them to once again take part in an independent, active lifestyle.  Our Occupational Therapists work together with each patient and his or her family members to determine individual goals and a plan of treatment to reach those goals.

At Gurwin, we offer a wide range of occupational therapy services. Our experts not only create an encouraging atmosphere but also design exercises specifically for senior patients. Some common occupational therapy services may include:

Besides addressing the basic activities of daily living, our staff also evaluates the patient’s home environment, determining what equipment, if any, is needed after the patient returns home, as well as if there are any home modifications necessary for the patient to return home safely.
