Building your ability to independently participate in the meaningful activities of your life.
“Occupational Therapists are qualified health professionals who work with all people to do the things they need and want to in all aspects of life, such as taking care of oneself and others, working, volunteering, and participating in hobbies, interests and social events.
They assist people to manage ongoing symptoms and prevent complications by:
- Building their knowledge and skills
- Finding new ways of doing activities
- Changing the environment to suit their needs”
