Center for Physical Rehabilitation & Aquatics
Housed within the IVCH Center for Physical Rehabilitation and Aquatics, our Occupational Therapy team works with anyone who has a disabling mental illness or physical condition to improve his or her ability to perform tasks at home and in the workplace. This type of treatment ranges from helping someone with a hand injury work on how to button a shirt, write or type to assisting a recovering stroke patient practice tasks like combing his or her hair or cooking a meal.
With more than 18 years of experience at IVCH, Licensed Occupational Therapist Amy Bolelli, BS, OT, supervises our occupational therapy staff, comprised of Jemile Hopkins, OTR/L, and Jodi Washkowiak, MS, OTR/L. Together, they help our patients set up exercise programs to increase strength and dexterity, teach them how to use adaptive devices, such as crutches and wheelchairs, and so much more.
