Donate to Occupational Therapy Research, Patient Care and Education
The goal of occupational therapists at Northwestern Medicine is to allow patients to fully engage in activities of everyday life. Whether physical limitations have developed as a result of an injury, disease or hereditary condition, highly specialized and expertly trained occupational therapists are committed to treating patients with compassion, dignity and encouragement. Your donations to the Northwestern Memorial Foundation will allow occupational therapists at Northwestern Medicine to develop new programs and treatment options, while delivering therapy in warm and welcoming state-of-the-art facilities in the Chicago metropolitan area.
Occupational therapy is designed to improve strength, coordination and cognition skills needed to perform basic daily functions and regain quality of life. Many of our patients are referred to occupational therapists as a result of sports injuries, cancer and stroke aftercare. Our occupational therapists also specialize in treating those experienced brain injuries or symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. We are committed working with patients throughout their recoveries until they are able to best develop the ability to have independent productive lives.
Our teams of occupational therapists understand the emotional frustration that can accompany the loss of ability or reduced ability to perform basic everyday functions. We treat the whole patient using the latest technologies. Complete medical examinations and movement testing allows the occupational therapists at Northwestern Medicine to design custom treatment programs to meet the needs of each individual patient.
