Healing by Doing
Occupational Therapy is there to assist you, or your loved one, in participating in everyday life. Occupations are those meaningful activities that occupy your time and include those things you want and need to do.
ADLs (activities of daily living) – dressing, bathing, toileting, grooming
IADLs (instrumental activities of daily living) – cooking, cleaning, washing clothes, grocery shopping, pet and child care
Work (skills needed to engage in work)
Leisure (recreation and play)
Education (writing, organizational skills)
Occupational therapists are trained experts at activity analysis and can provide clients with resources to adapt or modify occupations, regain function in their body, and adapt to their new abilities.
