Occupational Therapy
Occupation is anything that gives a person meaning and purpose in life. If these skills are disrupted or underdeveloped due to physical or cognitive limitations, that person does not have full access to his/her environment or quality of life. Occupational therapy works with that person to develop the necessary skills to perform basic self-care (activities of daily living) and higher-level skills both independently and safely. It is our goal for that person to become as independent as possible to give him or her more meaning and purpose in life.  

Occupational Therapy focuses on helping an individual by learning new skills, refining current skills or using adaptive equipment to successfully perform the activities necessary for independence throughout the day. With strong knowledge of a person’s psychological, physical, emotional, and social makeup, occupational therapy practitioners can evaluate how your condition (or risk for one) is affecting your body and mind, using a holistic perspective.

An occupational therapist can help:
  • Achieve goals, such as helping a young teenager with a developmental disability gain the skills to transition from high school to independent living as an adult. 
  • Stay as healthy and productive as possible, while managing a chronic medical condition. 
  • Maintain or rebuild your independence, such as using assistive devices so you can care for yourself after a stroke.
  • Participate in the everyday activities important
 to you, such as driving, visiting friends, going to church, and other activities that keep you involved with your community.
