We all have an innate desire to do as much for ourselves as possible. If you need help re-learning how to take care of daily tasks, such as dressing, bathing and homemaking — or if your goal is to overcome challenges and find new ways to work or play — occupational therapy can help you reclaim your independence and manage ever-changing environments.
ChristianaCare’s experienced team of certified occupational therapists helps you apply real-life skills and use adaptive equipment to regain strength and coordination and re-learn the more challenging skills of daily living.
