Helping you live independently
Occupational Therapy at Beverly Hospital
Many health conditions and injuries limit your independence. They make it harder to perform basic activities, such as bathing, dressing or completing work-related tasks.
At Beverly Hospital, our occupational therapists offer treatments to help you regain your independence. We work closely with your doctor to treat a range of conditions that affect your ability to perform daily tasks.
What to Expect
Our occupational therapists help people of all ages regain their strength and confidence through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. We’ll conduct an individualized evaluation, during which you and your occupational therapist (OT) set your goals. Your therapist will customize interventions to improve your ability to perform daily activities and reach your goals.
