Occuptational Therapy Month Celebrated at St. Anthony

Thursday, 15 April 2010

Occupational therapy is a health profession that helps people whose
lives have been affected by illness or injury. Those who can benefit
from occupational therapy range from the tiniest of newborn infants to
senior citizens, and every age in between.

The occupational therapy staff, at St. Anthony, offers knowledge
and skills to treat the pediatric population, to get injured workers back-
to-work, and help older people who may suffer from the effects of
arthritis, Parkinson’s Disease, stroke, traumatic brain injury, or general
weakness. The goal of occupational therapy is to help individuals
gain as much independence as possible in their “occupation” of life
– work, school, play/leisure, and self-care activities.

To find out more about how occupational therapy could help
you or a loved one, call St. Anthony at 712-794-5000.
