Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy

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.

Occupational Therapy practitioners can assist with helping people:

  • 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

  • Sleep/Rest

  • Work (skills needed to engage in work)

  • Leisure (recreation and play)

  • Education (writing, organizational skills)

  • And more!
