Inpatient Neurological Rehabilitation

Newton-Wellesley Hospital's inpatient occupational therapists work with adults who present with acute changes in functional abilities due to a variety of neurological diagnoses, including Stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA), Multiple Sclerosis, or Parkinson’s Disease.

Our inpatient therapists have expertise in the evaluation and treatment of limitations due to neurological diagnoses, including:

  • Activities of daily living, such as basic self care needs
  • Upper limb sensory, motor and coordination disorders
  • Cognitive impairments including problems with memory, attention or judgment and safety
  • Visual & perceptual impairments impacting daily tasks
  • Home safety needs
Patient and family education are a critical component of occupational therapy intervention. Depending on the person’s needs and interests, occupational therapy intervention may focus on restoring lost abilities or recommending adaptive equipment and techniques to maximize engagement in everyday activities and enhance quality of life. When appropriate, referrals for continued occupational therapy services are completed to ensure continuity of care when patients are discharged from the hospital.

Our occupational therapists are members of Newton Wellesley Hospital’s Stroke Team, working collaboratively with physicians, physical therapists, speech therapists, nursing and case management to holistically address patient and family needs after acute stroke.

Service Hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 am – 6:00 pm, Saturdays & Sunday from 8:00 am – 4:30 pm.
