Occupational Therapy Fundamentals

What is Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy can help a person with a significant medical illness or injury that is mental, emotional or physical. Occupational therapy works alongside you to empower you to take charge of your overall recovery, health and well-being. Occupational Therapists use your everyday activities in rehabilitation to help you heal and rebuild your lifestyle. We assist you to return to participating and engaging in occupations that are relevant to you in your self-care, work, leisure, family and community life. We can provide advice about strategies, adaptive techniques, resources and pathways to overcome the challenges you face. It may be beneficial to involve your loved ones to support your recovery and prevent issues arising with the family’s routine and goals for the future.
