The occupational therapy team provides consultation, assessment, intervention and education services.
The goal of occupational therapy is to promote health and wellness through occupation.
Life is made up of important daily activities or occupations such as bathing, gardening, preparing meals, painting, doing laundry, working, etc. Occupations are part of life; they define people and reflect how they perceive themselves. Occupations give meaning to life.
The main objective of occupational therapy is to make it possible for everyone to take part in the activities of daily living.
Occupational therapists treat patients with physical or mental health problems (e.g. stroke, surgery, depression, dementia, developmental disorders) that can make everyday activities difficult to do.
They provide services for inpatients as well as for children and adults seen in the outpatient clinics.
Occupational therapy services are provided on the recommendation of a physician or health professional.
