Maximizing Functional Independence After Brain Injury

Craig occupational therapists specialize in helping people maximize functional independence after brain injury. This is done through an individualized rehabilitation program that emphasizes independence in activities of daily living. Activities of daily living include basic self-care, such as dressing, eating and grooming, and more advanced activities such as cooking, home maintenance, work, and community access. An occupational therapy program involves evaluating and treating visual impairments, arm impairments, and cognitive impairments that may negatively impact performance in activities of daily living after brain injury, and will involve education and training to help ensure safety and confidence after discharge.
