Occupational Therapy

Better Care, Better Results

Occupational therapists help people with physical, developmental, emotional or mental conditions. Our therapists help individuals who experience these disabling conditions develop, recover and maintain daily living and work skills. The goal of the occupational therapy program at Spooner Health is to help patients have an independent, productive and satisfying life.

To help patients achieve independence, occupational therapists often retrain the skills used in everyday life. Our occupational therapists also work closely with other members of the therapy services team to provide the most effective care plan.
