Occupational therapy promotes functional independence and defines a person’s strengths and differing abilities that impact function in everyday activities like feeding, dressing and grooming, bathing, transportation, leisure and household activities.
People are often referred to OT for assistance with hand function, transfers, seating and positioning, equipment prescription, sensory functioning and ergonomics.
An OT can help with:
- Bathing (teaching transfers, facilitating new equipment use)
- Transportation (teaching transfer safety, caregiver training)
- Leisure (day program activities, community activities, volunteering opportunities)
- Household activities (facilitating safe and effective techniques for cleaning, laundry, cooking, banking, appointments, etc.)
- Technology (adapting technology for accessibility, environmental controls)
- Power wheelchairs and other adaptive devices (assessment and prescription)
