Occupational therapy is important in the successful treatment of individuals who are experiencing difficulty functioning in daily life. Applications of occupational therapy range from stimulating feeding reflexes in a premature infant to promoting safety and independence with the elderly. The occupational therapy practitioner works with other members of the health care team to develop a treatment plan and choose activities that are integral and meaningful to overall independent functioning and treatment.
At the Granite Falls Municipal Hospital and Manor we provide services to both inpatients and outpatients, manor residents, home care patients and the residents of the Clarkfield Care Center. Occupational therapy can help to ensure a fuller, more productive, and independent lifestyle for older adults. Successfully addressing the person’s needs within his or her environment is a hallmark of occupational therapy.
