what is Occupational Therapy?
After an injury, surgery or other procedure that may have affected the ability to perform activities of daily living (ADLs), occupational therapy can help patients regain those skills or develop a new way of doing things based on individual needs and abilities. This type of rehabilitation focuses on dressing, bathing, cooking, cleaning and other essential ADLs. Our licensed occupational therapists will work with patients and their families to create a personalized treatment plan for a safe and successful transition home. Contact our team to learn more.
With 20 locations across Arizona offering occupational therapy, Haven Health offers the perfect solution for your needs. Contact us today for a free consultation.
