Occupational therapists work with people of all ages, helping them to carry out the activities that they need or want to do in order to lead healthy and fulfilling lives.
Occupational therapists, or OT's, work with anyone who may be experiencing physical, psychological and/or social problems, either from birth or as a result of trauma, illness or ageing.
An OT's goal is to help clients have independent, productive, and satisfying lives.
When people cannot participate effectively in the activities of daily living which are essential to our quality of life, and which we all take for granted – such as having a shower, preparing a favourite meal, getting dressed, or going to work – an occupational therapist has the ideal skills mix to work with that person in improving their functional capacity and therefore quality of life. They can help the individual to develop or recover daily living and work skills, either through the use of purposeful activity or via specialist aids and adaptations.
