Occupational Therapy

.

The primary goal of your Stability occupational therapist is to enable individuals, groups and communities to participate in activities which are meaningful to them, reflect their beliefs and values, and produce a sense of accomplishment or satisfaction.

Occupational therapists:

  • Apply their specific knowledge to enable people to engage in activities of daily living that have personal meaning and value.
  • Develop, improve, sustain, or restore independence to any person who has an injury, illness, disability or psychological dysfunction.
  • Consult with the person and the family or caregivers and, through evaluation and treatment, promote the client’s capacity to participate in satisfying daily activities.
  • Address by intervention the person’s capacity to perform, the activity being performed, or the environment in which it is performed.

The occupational therapist’s goal is to provide you with skills for the job of living — those necessary to function in the community or in your chosen environment.

Occupational therapy is the profession concerned with promoting health and well-being through assessment of current status and goal-based intervention to develop, improve, sustain, or restore independence to any person who has an injury, illness, or disability.
