Our occupational therapists help children, teens, adults and older adults by addressing difficulties they may be experiencing following an injury, change in their function, level of autonomy or other issue.
What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapists help facilitate the process that allow individuals to be able to complete their everyday to do’s independently and within an environment that is adapted to their needs. Occupational therapists will work one on one with their clients, their families and treating team to establish treatment goals and map out a plan that will allow for the attainment of therapy goals.
What can Occupational Therapy do for me?
Occupational therapists understand that part of living is being able to complete the things that have to be done (ex.: paying bills), need to be done (ex.: cleaning, laundry, meal preparation), and want to be done (ex.: gardening, playing a sport, socializing) in an environment that is fitting to their client’s abilities (ex.: accessible and barrier-free).
Occupational therapist will work with their clients to understand their unique occupations and activities, and together, and with their treating team, they will determine a plan that will facilitate goal attainment.
Occupational therapy interventions may include developing and learning a new skill or strategy, modifying and/or adapting the environment to allow the individual to safely, confidently and independently complete the occupations that they have, need and want to do.
