Frequently Asked Questions

Got a question? We’re here to help! If you don’t find what you’re looking for below, contact our practice for assistance.

Occupational therapists are health care specialists who work with patients to assist them in accomplishing independence in everyday activities, such as cooking and eating, cleaning and bathing, or working.

Occupational therapists aid individuals with physical, functional, or cognitive difficulties affecting their engagement in previously enjoyed activities of daily living. They may utilise an array of therapeutic mediums to help a patient improve his or her abilities in these areas.

Vicki Hofmann and her team specialise in occupational therapy for the hands and arms. Our team provides adult physical rehabilitation, including rehabilitation of arms, elbows, and hands, as well as neurological rehabilitation such as strokes, functional capacity evaluations, medicolegal assessments, driving assessments as well as burns and pressure garments.

Some people may only need a few sessions with an occupational therapist at our practice to regain the ability to do things they once took for granted, such as bathing or cooking. Others may require more intensive rehabilitation that can last for many months or years. No matter what your situation is, our occupational therapists will work with you to develop a treatment plan that meets your specific needs so you can achieve your goals.

Every medical aid cover is different. Most do cover occupational therapy to some extent. Please enquire directly with your medical aid. We request patients pay us after each visit and submit the account and receipt to medical aid for a refund.
