Occupational Therapy

Trinity’s occupational therapists and OT assistants re-train residents in self-care skills, such as feeding, dressing, bathing, and grooming. They used graded activities, safety training, and other compensatory techniques to improve activities of daily living. They are specialists in recommending adaptive equipment and other environmental changes to help the patient function safely. They also use splints and positioning devices to correct deformities and increase function. Planning goals for the occupational therapist may include improvement or motor, sensory, perceptual, and cognitive abilities.
