Here is a basic list of our services although we offer many more.
Falls are the leading cause of injury and accidental death in adults over the age of 65. Some people become so afraid of falling (or after an actual fall) that they stop doing activities they used to enjoy. An occupational therapy practitioner uses your daily activities as the basis of therapy to help ensure that you can safely do the things you want to do and need to do. Our fall prevention program may include recommendations for furniture placement and lighting, a medication review, and instruction to safely increase your physical conditioning by focusing on items you enjoy (e.g., gardening or washing the car to increase strength, walking to increase endurance, carrying shopping bags to increase strength).
Dementia results from impaired cognition, due to damage to the brain. Occupational therapists help by enhancing function, promoting relationships and social participation, and finding ways for those with dementia to enjoy life. By providing education and support for the family, care providers, and clients (as they are able to understand), and promoting the person’s strengths, occupational therapists help ensure that those with dementia and their care providers have the support needed to live life to its fullest.
Occupational therapy provides clients with the tools to optimize their home environments relative to individual abilities and promote full participation in daily life activities. Home modifications are a key factor in enabling individuals to “age in place,” for older adults or live in the place or home of choice. Occupational therapy plays a key role in identifying strategies that enable individuals to modify their homes, thereby maximizing their ability to participate safely and securely in daily tasks/activities.
Chronic Medical Conditions
Chronic conditions, such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and obesity, are the leading causes of death and disability—and the most preventable. Occupational therapy practitioners analyze the demands of activities and evaluate the task between abilities and obstacles.
They may make recommendations on how to conserve energy, reduce or prevent pain, simplify
the activities, and improve the safety and ease of functioning in a given environment. Managing chronic conditions also involves learning specific health-management skills. Occupational therapy practitioners are particularly trained in helping clients manage chronic conditions in a way that fits with existing routines and patterns so changes feel less disruptive and are more likely to be consistently integrated into daily routines.
An estimated 1 in 5 adults are diagnosed annually with arthritis in the United States.
The most common arthritic conditions are osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, and lupus. These conditions present with symptoms such as joint and muscle pain, morning stiffness, swelling, and fatigue. Occupational therapists treat individuals with arthritic
conditions to increase or preserve mobility so they are able to perform activities in areas such as self-care, home management, work, and leisure and social participation.
Lymphedema is a chronic medical condition caused by reduced transport capacity of the lymphatic system. Complete decongestive therapy (CDT) is the treatment of choice for lymphedema and is performed by a certified lymphedema therapist (CLT). CDT has two phases. Phase I is an intensive program that consists of exercise, compression bandaging, a special massage technique called manual lymphatic drainage (MLD), skin care techniques, and education in self-management. Phase II is a daily home program completed by the client. It consists of lymphatic massage, exercise, skin care, inspecting the limb, wearing compression garments, and nighttime compression, through either self-bandaging or custom garments.

“Chantel was my OT person after I had a brain tumor removed. I was totally unaware that there was even such a thing available to me out there.
Chantel was so easy to work with, right away she helped calm my fears of not ever going to regain my ability of regaining normalcy.
Chantel’s ideas were built for me and only me and when she worked with me I felt like I was her only patient and new I was going to be able to get what I needed from the OT I was getting.
We worked on brain exercise’s from Lumosity. She helped me learn how to use my computer again. I was afraid of it how my brain didn’t work like it did in the past.
She took me to grocery stores and we walked around to familiarize where things were located again.
She was brave enough to ride in a car with me and remind me how to get to different places in different towns.
We walked up and down stairs so that I felt comfortable enough to go into buildings that had stairs to climb.
She took me to some of my favorite places to go like the grotto which is a hiking place in the mountains that I never thought I could do until she helped me do it.
She took me to Church and helped relearned the things that I thought I could never do again.
She is so good at caring as your working on OT things it feels like you have a sister right next to you cheering you on.” Linda W.
