Occupational Therapy for Adults
Skills for the job of living
Occupations are more than just employment. Occupations are all of the things that we do to occupy our time, including getting dressed in the morning, preparing meals, managing a household, and participating in social and leisure activities. Occupational therapist work with people of all ages who are recovering from illness, have experienced an injury, or struggle with a disability to increase independence with these daily occupations. The ability to engage in these daily tasks and successfully interact with our environment not only increases independence but it can also enhance one’s quality of life.
