For those who don’t know, occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help people of all ages participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. Unlike other professions, occupational therapy helps people function in all of their environments—for example, at home, work, school and in the community—as well as addresses the physical, psychological, and cognitive aspects of their well-being through activities. Services are available to patients at the Stocktrail Building.

When working with an occupational therapist, individualized plans are created for problem solving, improved function and support of life activities, such as bathing, dressing and eating. Through occupational therapy, individuals develop needed skills, adjust their environment and build health-promoting habits and routines that will allow them to thrive.

Common occupational therapy interventions include helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, helping people recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing support for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes.
