“Occupational Therapy is really rather clever; it uses what you do everyday as treatment. So, you not only get things done, but you get better in the process”
Occupational therapists use everyday activities as the basis of treatment to enable people to return to those activities following illness or injury. Occupational Therapists utilise activities which are purposeful and meaningful to the individual they are working with.
Occupational therapists are clinically trained problem solvers and dynamic lateral thinkers, who clearly identify barriers to a person’s daily life and provide intervention and solutions to overcome these barriers and seek to restore health and wellbeing.
What does an Occupational Therapist do?
An Occupational Therapists job role is to help people of all ages overcome the effects of disability caused by illness, ageing or accident so that they can carry out everyday tasks or occupations.
An Occupational Therapist will consider all of the patient’s needs – physical, psychological, social and environmental. This support can make a real difference, giving people a renewed sense of purpose, opening up new horizons, and changing the way they feel about the future.
