Occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants are vital team members in helping individuals participate in the activities they want and need to do every day. Occupational therapy helps individuals of all ages live life the fullest and helps those with injury, illness, or disability conquer everyday tasks.
Occupational therapists are vital in:
- Helping an individual who experienced a car accident, is recovering from injury, and needs help to regain skills
- Helping school children with disabilities to participate in class full, school activities, and social functions
- Helping a stroke patient recover and learn how to participate in activities of daily living
- Helping seniors regain and maintain their independence as long as possible
- And so much more!
The American Occupational Therapy Association has picked the theme this year to be “Empowering Independence”, which just so happens to be very similar to the mission of EmpowerMe Wellness. EmpowerMe Wellness provides personal wellness services to help seniors achieve their goals and stay independent as long as possible. EmpowerMe Wellness has partnered with Cedarhurst Senior Living to offer on-site physical, occupational, and speech therapy in each of their communities.

All of us at Cedarhurst thank our exceptional team of Occupational therapists and therapy assistants for all that they do for our residents!
