Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is a service that focuses on helping people function to their fullest potential in their environment. Occupational therapy helps people recover from a physical, psychosocial, motor, or cognitive impairment. The task of all people is to perform their daily routine with the highest level of independence.

Occupational therapy can be use for individuals of all ages. It identifies and improves skills that help people perform daily tasks at home, at school, at work, and at play.

Occupational therapy is centered on the performance of meaningful activities of daily living such as self-care skills, education, work, or social interaction. It works to enable or enhance participation in daily living activities despite impairments or limitations in physical or mental functioning. Additionally, occupational therapy uses activities that are directed toward following directions, sequencing and movement.

Engaging in activities to achieve goals can vary significantly and may include, age and skill-appropriate games that address goals, learning and practicing adapted methods for daily skills. It also includes using home safety, arm strengthening exercises, cooperative groups, and manipulating small objects. Occupational therapy involves adapting to the environment to achieve maximum independence and to improve the quality of life of the recipients whom they serve.
