Meet Janine Albert, CCH Occupational Therapist

Meet Janine Albert, CCH Occupational Therapist

Did you know that April is Occupational Therapy Awareness month? In honor of this recognition, Campbell County Health wanted to shed some light on this profession and introduce our therapists.

Janine Albert is one of four occupational therapists who provides therapy to patients in multiple locations. For those who don't know, occupational therapy promotes independence and living a meaningful life whether it be through physical rehab, creating adaptations to make functional activities easier, or teaching new strategies to function to the best of a person’s ability.

To Janine, living life to the fullest means participating in all desired activities even when it requires making adaptations to do so and why she became an occupational therapist. Witnessing the impact an occupational therapist had on the development of a child in her family was the turning point. "The therapist was an incredible resource and support for my parents," she says. "I also love the relationships we get to develop with our patients."

One of Janine’s favorite things about being an occupational therapist is the flexibility and variety of occupational therapy. “I could be treating a broken wrist one day, finding ways to maximize independence following a stroke the next, or working on reaching on developmental milestones with a kid the next. It is a constant challenge, and I love it,” she says.

Janine chooses to work for CCH’s Rehabilitation Services because they treat all diagnoses, including splinting, orthopedic conditions, neurologic conditions, mental health difficulties, children with developmental delays or sensory difficulties, generalized weakness, and home safety evaluations, among others.

“I am a firm believer that almost any condition would benefit from occupational therapy in one way or another,” says Janine.

Thank you, Janine, for being a part of the team at Occupational Therapy at CCH Rehabilitation Services.

Occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help people of all ages participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. Unlike other professions, occupational therapy helps people function in all of their environments—for example, at home, work, school and in the community—as well as addresses the physical, psychological, and cognitive aspects of their well-being through activities. Occupational therapy services are available to patients at the Stocktrail Building, or in the comfort of their own home.
