Occupational therapy can help people resume an independent life or perform daily activities following injury, disease or disability. Licensed therapists who work in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Saint Peter’s University Hospital help patients regain the skills they need to perform everyday tasks. Occupational therapists are trained to adapt the environment for, modify tasks for, retrain and teach new skills to patients experiencing physical and cognitive changes.
Together with the patient, the occupational therapist determines goals during an initial individualized evaluation. A treatment plan of care is recommended to improve the patient’s ability to perform daily activities and to reach their goals. The focus is on adapting the environment to fit the person’s needs and goals.
Highly skilled and trained occupational therapists licensed by the State of New Jersey provide services in the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department at Saint Peter’s.
A typical occupational therapy treatment plan may include:
Call (732) 745-8570 with any questions or if you are interested in scheduling an appointment for occupational therapy services.
A prescription from a physician is required to initiate therapy and, depending on your insurance, a referral may also be necessary.
Appointments are available Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
