Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists believe that activities describe who you are and how you feel about yourself. They believe that in your life, if you are unable to perform the activity you want or need to do, this may affect your general well-being.

Occupational therapists can:

  • Teach new ways of approaching tasks
  • Break down activities into achievable goals (i.e. sequencing a task like cooking a meal)
  • Complete home and job site evaluations with adaptation recommendations
  • Design environmental adaptations to make daily living activities manageable
  • Give support to the family
  • Assess how to perform daily activities and treatment

The aim of an occupational therapist is to have you become as independent as possible in all daily life activities (i.e. eating, showering, dressing, cooking, shopping, driving, leisure activities, work, etc)

Occupational therapists can also use their skills to work with elderly patients and assess:

  • Safety
  • Social interactions & communication
  • Memory skills training
  • Mobility assessment (scooters, wheelchairs, walkers, etc)
  • Vision interventions
  • Continence training
  • Facilitating performing basic activities
