About our Occupational Therapy Services

Occupational therapy is a science-based health and social care specialization that takes a "person centered" approach to both mental and physical health. It provides practical support, facilitates recovery and increases independence; enabling those with physical, mental, or cognitive disorders to identify and overcome any barriers that prevent them from completing meaningful and purposeful activities. The term "occupation" refers to practical and purposeful activities, ranging from essential daily tasks, such as self-care, to work and leisure.

Our occupational therapists are skilled professionals who find solutions to everyday problems through a comprehensive assessment of each person’s needs – whether they are physical, psychological, social or environmental. Therapists work to help people of all ages overcome effects of disability, which can be caused by a wide range of physical, developmental, social, or emotional problems.
