Transforming Lives, Building Independence

When injury strikes or long-term wear of joints and muscles require rehabilitation, the Occupational Therapists at The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center provide the necessary exercises to get the residents back into motion.

Simply getting out of bed may be a challenge or even moving from one position to another can be a problem. Occupational therapists have studied the movements required to make these transitions happen safely and know the therapies to help improve weakened muscles and alternatives when others fail. They can even help retrain newly repaired body parts to do the job.

Occupational therapy services may include comprehensive evaluations of the resident’s home and other environments, recommendations for adaptive equipment and training in its use, and guidance and education for family members and caregivers.

April is Occupational Therapy Month, and CCH wants to make sure that we spotlight all of the therapists throughout our organization. So, thank you for always doing the right thing for The Legacy residents and Short Term Rehabilitation patients, and for providing excellence, every day.

When the transition from hospitalization to home requires a stay in short term care, The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center’s state-of-the-art facility can help. Short term care, also called short term rehabilitation, is focused on getting people back to their homes quickly with a daily therapy schedule. Short term rehab patients stay in a separate wing at The Legacy with private rooms and direct access to the large rehab gym. Learn more about the services offered at Short Term Rehabilitation in The Legacy.

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. Services are available to patients at the Stocktrail Building, The Legacy Living and Rehabilitation Center for residents, or in the comfort of their own home.
