Occupational therapists help people be independent in all their roles in life and daily activities by promoting independence in their own self-care, taking care of their home, money management, making and getting to appointments and community activities. Our experienced occupational therapy team, licensed by the State of Wisconsin, helps people increase their functional independence in daily life and work while preventing or minimizing disability. As a skilled nursing facility (SNF) and depending on care needs, occupational therapy at Rennes Health and Rehab Centers is offered on both an outpatient and inpatient therapy basis.
Located in Northeast and Northcentral Wisconsin, Rennes Health and Rehab Center occupational therapy is in your own backyard. Based upon location, we offer specialists in Lymphedema management (CLT), and PWR! (Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery).

Post-surgery rehab (hip, knee and shoulder replacements)
Shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand problems
Arthritis, arm/hand deformities
Sprains, strains, and fractures of the upper extremities

What to Expect During Occupational Therapy
Your occupational therapist will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your functional capabilities relative to activities of daily living (ADLs), along with an evaluation of your physical, visual, and cognitive capabilities. Your therapist will collaborate with you to determine your goals and develop an occupational therapy plan focused on a safe progression of strength-building exercises and stretches to improve flexibility.
