This April, we’re joining the American Occupational Therapy Association in recognizing the importance of occupational therapy. At Lutheran Life Villages, we offer this vital therapy to people of all ages as part of our regionally recognized, multi-discipline rehabilitation program. We provide high-quality inpatient and outpatient rehab services at three of our campuses—The Village at Pine Valley, The Village at Kendallville and The Village at Anthony Boulevard, and outpatient therapy at The Village at Birchwood.
What is occupational therapy? It’s a health care profession aimed at enabling people to live life to its fullest. To an occupational therapist, a “full” life means engaging in the activities that a person wants and needs to do, no matter what injury, illness, condition, disability, lifestyle, or environment stands in the way.
Our on-staff occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help our rehabilitation clients to perform, modify, or adapt their skills and activities in order to live healthier, happier, and more productive lives. We also specialize in providing support for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes.
Among the conditions that can benefit from our occupational therapy services include:
