ABOUT OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY
Occupational Therapists and OT Assistants help patients perform daily activities to the best of their ability. These activities often include eating, bathing, grooming, dressing, and toileting. Occupational therapy helps people of any age accomplish the things they need and desire to do through the therapeutic performance of muscular activities.
Occupational therapy practitioners enable people to live their best life by helping them promote health and prevent—or live better with—injury, illness, or disability. The repetition of accomplishing necessary tasks develops healthy habits and skills that build towards higher levels of self-efficacy and reliance. Patients benefit from the progress they see performing daily tasks themselves as they work toward independence.
It’s been said that progress is the best indicator of happiness. We see this daily with our optimistic patients as they progress towards more and more independence.
