Occupational therapy addresses the patient’s independence with performing self-care skills, such as dressing, bathing, toileting, and grooming. In addition, restoring upper body/arm movement, strength and coordination, as well as visual limitations, are all evaluated and treated. As an occupational therapist at Pate Rehabilitation for 12 years, I have had the opportunity to serve a variety of brain injury patients at different stages in their recovery. It has been such a privilege to watch Pate grow as a company over the years. We continually adapt and fine tune our approach to better serve our patients. Pate’s occupational therapy staff are top notch and strive to constantly improve their skills in order to stay up to date on the latest treatment techniques and trends. To me, the best part of Pate is working with such a close group of therapists from all disciplines and walks of life that provide individualized patient-centered treatment.
