Help People Get Back To Everyday Activities
At Therapy Works our Occupational Therapists (OT) help people get back to everyday activities — the “jobs of living” (occupations). They help the patient change some part of their life — by developing skills, improving physical and emotional abilities, adapting the environment or changing the way they do activities — so the client can better cope with aging, disease, injury or illness.
Occupational Therapists serve people with injury, illness, disability or psychological dysfunction. They work side by side, making a plan with the client, family or caregiver. Together they find the best path to meaning, balance and progress. Through evaluation and treatment, OTs improve their clients’ capacity to participate in meaningful daily activities.
Daily activities include most anything—think about the skills required for the “job of living.” (This is where the word “occupation” comes from in Occupational Therapy!) Whether it’s bathing, eating, grooming, dressing, cooking, driving, cleaning, working, leisure or learning, OTs help people function in their community or chosen environment. Keep in mind this is not a conclusive list; an OT can tailor treatment to meet anyone’s needs and interests.
Look closer—OTs are everywhere! Did you know we work in all parts of our medical, health, educational and social systems? You will find them in hospitals, schools, nursing homes and with clients in their own homes.
