Occupational Therapy aims at achieving health, well-being, and participation in life through engagement in occupations. If a patient is recovering from an accident or injury, his/her valued occupations may be disrupted. Occupational Therapy emphasizes skill training rather than the deficit.
Occupational Therapy focuses on daily occupations which include:
Community Rehabilitation: Home visits with the community health department to reduce architectural barriers and make the community environment accessible to persons with disability.
Caregiver Support Groups: For relatives of patients with mental illness spinal cord injury, head injury, etc.
