Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy (OT)
Occupational therapists help patients recover or develop skills needed to perform activities of daily living to help them achieve independence, meaning and satisfaction in all aspects of their lives.   They develop, improve, sustain, or restore independence and function to any person who has an injury, illness, disability or psychological dysfunction. The occupational therapist’s goal is to provide the client with skills for the job of living – those necessary to function in the community or in the client’s chosen environment.
