Occupational Therapist Kim Riley works with a patient at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, who recently had a full shoulder replacement. Englewood Hospital’s occupational therapists specialize in promoting independence with activities of daily living, which include getting out of bed, grooming, bathing, self care, meal preparation, housework, and employment, among other things.

(Englewood, NJ) – Englewood Hospital and Medical Center’s Occupational Therapy (OT) Program focuses on helping patients to achieve independence in all aspects of their lives, both physically and cognitively. “Our occupational therapists teach our patients to re-learn how to do routine tasks after injury or illness,” said Karen Wilk PT, DPT, Director of Rehabilitation Medicine. The Medical Center’s OT staff customizes the treatment of each patient using a variety of tools, techniques and strategies. While Englewood Hospital’s Occupational Therapists work with patients who are admitted to the hospital or as outpatients, OTs can work in a variety of other settings as well.
