Occupational Therapy is an evidenced-based approach that helps people of all ages to live life to its fullest. Patients, families, and caregivers can learn to live better with the physical and emotional issues resulting from an injury, illness or disability.
KVH’s Occupational Therapist Dottie Layer focuses on “doing” whatever occupations or activities are meaningful to her patients. She develops strategies that are individually tailored for each person to redesign their life, learn needed skills, adjust to their home, work or school environments, and build health-promoting habits and safety routines.
For Dottie, it’s all about Resilience: discovering and teaching new ways to cope with life’s challenges that help her patients to not just survive - but thrive!
