What is an occupational therapist?
Occupational therapy for adults and seniors
When an adult or an older person is affected by an illness, accident or workplace injury, an occupational therapist can help them on the road to recovery. They may assist with the return to home and work life through the development of new skills for daily living, such as household tasks and personal care, return-to-work or leisure programs. They may also make or facilitate changes to the work or home environment to make life easier and safer.
