Occupational Therapists can help clients who have experienced an injury or are experiencing a chronic health condition to get back to meaningful everyday activities.

This might include...
  • Self-care – getting dressed, eating, moving around the house
  • Being productive – going to work or school, participating in the community
  • Leisure activities- ability to participate in hobbies

An OT will try to find out why a client cannot do what they would like or need to.

An OT may check...
  • Your physical abilities like strength, balance and coordination
  • Your mental abilities like memory, coping strategies, organizational skills
  • What materials or devices you use to participate in activities like furniture, utensils, tools or clothes
  • What social and emotional support is available to you at home, school, work or in the community, and
  • The physical setup of your house
  • We work in the hospital setting, long term care, outpatient rehabilitation and by doing home visits. We do accept self-referrals.

For more information please ask to speak with your local OT at 780-841-3201.
