April is Occupational Therapy Month
Occupational therapy practitioners enable people of all ages to live life to its fullest by helping them promote health, and prevent—or live better with—injury, illness, or disability. Common occupational therapy interventions include helping people recover from injuries to regain skills, and those experiencing physical and cognitive changes. Occupational therapy services typically include: • an individualized evaluation, during which the client/family and occupational therapist determine the person’s goals, • customized intervention to improve the person’s ability to perform daily activities and reach the goals, and • an outcomes evaluation to ensure that the goals are being met and/or make changes to the intervention plan. Occupational therapy practitioners have a holistic perspective, in which the focus is on adapting the environment and/or task to fit the person, and the person is an integral part of the therapy team. It is an evidence-based practice deeply rooted in science. Call our facility about our Out-Patient Rehab services and available hours.
