Occupational Therapy

Helping you get back to your Life

At Gunnison Valley Health, our Occupational Therapists work with people of all ages and at all stages of life to help them get back to their meaningful everyday activities. Whether you are a child with motor skill difficulties, an adult recovering from a brain injury, or an older adult, overcoming a health setback, we are here for you.

What is Occupational Therapy?

Your life is made up of occupations – meaningful everyday activities. These occupations can include many roles, such as cooking a meal, getting dressed, using a computer, or engaging with family and friends. Generally, we don’t consider these daily occupations until they become difficult. Our Occupational Therapists work with you on your goals to help you achieve your meaningful day-to-day activities.
