Occupational Therapists help people to restore, improve or maintain their ability to perform daily activities and lead meaningful lives after an illness or disability caused by injury or developmental delay. This includes self-care, returning to their usual activities such as going to work or school, engaging in leisure or social activities.
Occupational Therapists work with patients of all ages and are trained to identify physical, cognitive or psychosocial problems encountered by patients. After identifying the problem, the Occupational Therapist will tailor a treatment plan to assist patients in their recovery process and manage issues related to their condition. This may include helping patients to develop new skills to perform their roles and tasks in daily living, prescription of assistive devices or modification of their physical or social environment to enable patients to do the things that are important to them safely.
