Occupational Therapy

Every day, most of us brush our teeth, prepare food and work around the house with ease, and never give it a second thought. However, for someone who has suffered a debilitating injury, disease or disability, performing these ordinary activities can become a monumental challenge.

Mercy occupational therapists can teach you ways to overcome physical limitations and make tasks more manageable. This might include:

  • Basic daily living activities, such dressing, bathing and feeding
  • “Instrumental” activities such as cooking, gardening and driving
  • Visual perception skills
  • Cognition (related to everyday activities)
  • Upper extremity strengthening and coordination
  • Orthotic fabrication to assist with function of the upper extremity/hand
  • Wheelchair needs
  • Driving evaluations/training 

Mercy therapists help patients of all ages develop and maintain necessary life and work skills. Our occupational therapy services include treatment for people:

As part of your care and learning, we work with your family members and friends to encourage their participation in your treatment on your road to recovery.

We all want – and deserve – to live independent, productive and satisfying lives. Our goal is to help you gain the skills and ability you need to handle daily activities with ease – so you can focus your attention on all the other things that make life fulfilling.
