Occupational Therapy

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy practitioners ask, “What matters to you?” not, “What’s the matter with you?”

In its simplest terms, occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help people of all ages participate  in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Common occupational therapy interventions include  helping people recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing supports for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes. Occupational therapy services typically include:

  • an individualized evaluation, during which the client/family and occupational therapist determine the person’s goals,
  • customized intervention to improve the person’s ability to perform daily activities and reach the goals, and
  • an outcomes evaluation to ensure that the goals are being met and/or make changes to the intervention plan.

Our occupational therapy services are a vital component of our comprehensive Rehabilitation program.  They include consultation, evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation of individuals whose abilities to cope with the tasks of daily living are threatened or impaired. Intervention focuses on achieving independence in all aspects of life. Treatment identifies deficits that hinder function and make appropriate collections to enhance a person’s skills for the job of living.
