Outpatient Neurological Rehabilitation

Newton-Wellesley Hospital's outpatient occupational therapists work with adults who present with a variety of neurological diagnoses including Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease).

Our adult therapists have expertise in the evaluation and treatment of limitations that result from neurological diagnoses, such as:

  • Activities of daily living including self care, home & community skills
  • Energy conservation and fatigue management
  • Upper limb sensory, motor and coordination disorders
  • Cognitive impairments including problems with memory, attention or problem solving
  • Visual & perceptual impairments impacting daily tasks

Depending on the person’s needs and interests, occupational therapy intervention may focus on restoring lost abilities or teaching how to use adaptive equipment and techniques to maximize engagement in everyday activities and enhance quality of life. Collaboration with physical and speech therapy occurs as needed to ensure high quality patient care. Family and caregiver participation is encouraged.

Our occupational therapists are also part of an interdisciplinary team in the Multiple Sclerosis Clinic.

To schedule an appointment please call the Rehabilitation Services Department at 617-243-6172. We will be happy to answer any questions regarding referral and insurance requirements.
