Some of the objectives most important of the Occupational Therapy during the internment of neurological patients are: to become tolerable, many times drawn out, permanence in the hospital; to develop activities that organize in more adequate way the daily one in its new situation; to promote the humanizao of the hospital space individualizando of form the one that this if presents some identification with the citizen; to facilitate the internal expression looking for to keep the auto one they esteem high and the participation, in the possible measure do, the activities of daily life; to guide to the patient and the family how much to the positioning of the same in the stream bed, and the best way of assists it in the decubitus exchanges and posturais changes (in accordance with clinical evolution). In order to speed up the process of integration and return to the home, a minute evaluation of the aspects is essential occupational through the comment of motor, sensorial, percepto-cognitivos, emotional, familiar, relationary, involved the levels in the riot, for then, establishing of adequate form the stimulation boarding, training, adaptation and orientation, among others, in way it will make possible it the fastest return to the community, with or without adaptations already programmed with the family, but with all the necessary orientaes until if it becomes possible one adequate ambulatorial accompaniment.

This work must be initiated in the stream bed, so soon allows found the clinical and neurological conditions, through activities that facilitate to this redescoberta of potentials and the reconstruction of goals and values. Knowing itself of the plastic capacity of the nervous system, and the effort, many times not thought nor planned, of the individual to survive in radically modified conditions, we even find an enormous capacity of adaptation and of one ‘ ‘ transmutao’ ‘ , of creation of a new adequate organization to its special disposal. The more precocious and adequately stimulated the individual reached for neurological alteration, more quickly new circuits will be formed, greater tranquillity it will get more than knowing a little what it happened to it, little sequels and more life we can be promoting.
