Occupational Therapy

The goal of Occupational Therapy is to enable people to live life to its fullest. To occupational therapists, a “full” life means engagement in the activities that a person wants and needs to do, no matter what injury, illness, condition, disability, lifestyle, or environment stands in the way. These everyday human activities are what we call “occupations”, and they are the building blocks of our physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual health. Occupational therapists help people perform, modify or adapt their skills and activities in order to live healthier, happier, and more productive lives.
