ABOUT US

A great beginning to know us more


Mulder Occupational Therapy (OT) Services provides assessment and treatment services to persons injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident. Treatment is focused on return to function from all perspectives, including recovery from physical and cognitive injuries (due to a head injury), a return to emotional wellbeing after the stress and traumatic nature of an accident, and adjustment of the environment around them using adaptive devices or modifications to the environment in order to allow the person to reach their full potential after injury. The staff at Mulder OT Services are there to assist the injured person along the road to recovery, from start to finish. Services are funded through an auto insurance claim, so there are never any direct costs to the injured person for assessment, treatment or assistive devices/equipment.

Areas serviced

All of the Niagara Region, extending from the border to the USA at Fort Erie and Niagara Falls, extending to Port Dover along Lake Erie and extending to Oakville at Lake Ontario. This includes the cities of St. Catharines, Welland, Dunnville, Hamilton, Burlington, Beamsville, and Grimsby.

What makes us unique

Starting with a thorough assessment of a client’s physical, cognitive and emotional changes since their accident, the staff at Mulder OT Services work diligently to treat the whole person, as it is rarely the case that a severe motor vehicle accident will affect only one aspect of a person. Treatment is client-focused, where goals are made jointly with the injured person so that change and recovery is elicited in the most meaningful way possible. Treatment starts from the moment a referral is received, and can include a same day hospital visit if the accident has just recently occurred. In every case, the staff at Mulder OT Services will walk alongside the injured person, and their family, to navigate the complex insurance system, from the moment of hospital discharge until they have regained their pre-accident roles and activities.
