Celebrating Occupational Therapy Month

by -

April is National Occupational Therapy month, which means we get to share with you how our occupational therapists at 21st Century Rehab can make almost anything you struggle to do, easier.

Occupational therapy is all about helping people do the things they want and need to do.  A disability, surgery or injury can sometimes make it difficult to do the simplest of tasks.

At 21st Century Rehab, occupational therapist Suzy Montierth and certified occupational therapy assistant Linda Nordstrom help patients work toward improving independence and safety. 

Occupational therapy patients are commonly:

  • those with permanent disabilities
  • those recovering from injury, surgery or illness (such as a stroke)
  • those experiencing change in their physical and/or cognitive wellbeing   
  • those recovering from a fall
  • those with chronic pain or arthritis

While Suzy and Linda work with patients suffering from many ailments as mentioned, they also offer evaluation and treatment for lymphedema and edema, including post-breast cancer/lumpectomy/mastectomy care.

At 21st Century Rehab, the goal is always to help the patient reach his or her goals and return to doing what is desired and needed for independent and safe living.  If you or someone you love suffers, you may want to consider occupational therapy at Greene County Medical Center.
