Purposes of Occupational Therapy Services
Rehabilitation Services are designed to help the individual patient achieve an optimal level of functioning, self-care, self-responsibility, independence and quality of life. The optimal level is achieved by restoring, improving or maintaining the patient's assessed level of functioning. Rehabilitation services aim to minimize symptoms, exacerbations or chronic illnesses, impairments and disabilities. There is an interdisciplinary approach, including promotion of a continuum of patient care. There is integration of patient information to identify and assign priorities, as well as to make care decisions based on identified patient needs and care priorities. Rehabilitation becomes integrated into the patient's plan of care and follows them from the acute to the sub acute, the outpatient, extended care, home environment, or other care facilities, as appropriate.
