Occupational Therapy

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy is a holistic, patient-centered, occupation-based approach to life skill development. This health profession helps people whose lives have been altered by physical or mental disease, injury, or other health problems. People of any age can benefit from occupational therapy to prevent injury and improve skills needed to perform everyday tasks or “occupations” at home, work, or school. Examples include activities of daily living such as dialing a phone, using a computer, writing a check, and driving a car.
