Occupational therapy (OT), on the other hand, is focused on your long-term health and well-being. Occupational therapists take a unique, holistic approach to your care. We work with you to address your clinical condition, and we help you adapt your home and habits so you can participate more fully in day-to-day life.
How can OT help you?
Our goal is always to make a long-term and tangible difference in your daily life. We do this by helping you participate in the day-to-day activities that you find meaningful.
For a child, this might mean playing with friends.
For an adult, this might mean being able to prepare a meal for loved ones.
We OTs call these meaningful daily routines "activities of daily living" or “ADLs.”
These basic building blocks of daily life can become difficult after an injury, disability, or illness, and occupational therapy professionals help you develop the skills to participate in these activities with confidence
Occupational therapy treatment
Subsequent treatments focus on some combination of providing physical, emotional, and/or cognitive interventions to help you achieve your goals.
Therapists also consider whether modification of your environment (and/or certain activities) may help set you up for success.
Discharge from occupational therapy
At some point, you’ll be “discharged” from OT. When you are discharged from occupational therapy services, it means that you no longer need the skilled oversight of a therapist to continue making progress.
However, it does not necessarily mean the road to recovery is over.
When it’s time for you to discharge, OTs often provide additional education to help you to continue therapy on your own. This might involve issuing a home exercise program (HEP) or providing additional training and resources to family members and/or caregivers.
