For millions of people, the service of occupational therapy is a lifeline. People of all ages receive it to help them participate in the activities of their daily lives. Sometimes people need occupational therapy to do things we take for granted, like getting dressed, being productive at school or work, eating unassisted, even socializing.
Occupational therapists do this by helping people surmount their disabilities or medical conditions to do everyday things. The nature of the therapy depends on the individual and their environment; occupational therapists consider the whole person when developing a therapy plan.
Occupational therapy research proves that keeping people active and healthy as they age will not only improve occupational therapy programs focus on wellness and prevention to help seniors stay healthier and remain active in their own homes and communities.
Occupational therapy doesn't just treat medical conditions, it helps people stay engaged in the activities that give them pleasure or a sense of purpose despite challenges.
