Occupational Therapy


Occupational Therapy is a health profession concerned with promoting health and well-being through occupation.

 

Occupational therapy is focused in enabling people to participate and engage in the occupations of every day living – what people do to look after themselves and the activities they choose for leisure. Occupational therapists understand that participation in meaningful occupations contributes to health and well-being.

 

Occupational Therapists work with people of all ages who experience barriers to participation in day to day occupations (self-care, household management, work, school and leisure) as a result on injury, illness, mental health problems, aging, developmental problems, social disadvantage, etcetera and together identify solutions to remove or minimize barriers and promote or maintain function.

 

Occupation Therapists use a variety of approaches such as health promotion, injury prevention, chronic disease management, direct services and community development.
