Occupational Therapy focuses on helping people achieve independence and satisfaction in their daily lives. When a person has suffered an injury or illness, simple activities of daily living, such as getting dressed, preparing a meal or instrumental activities such as participating in leisure activities can become difficult.
Occupational Therapy can benefit people of all ages from childhood to the aging adult. For the adult patient that has lost functional strength, range of motion and independence with preferred everyday activities, Occupational Therapists can help them establish, restore and gain back that independence. Activity adaptations and modifications may be implemented along with assistive devices and adaptive equipment training and education.
