Helping People Lead Independent, Productive and Satisfying Lives


Occupational Therapy is a health and rehabilitation profession. The term occupation refers to activities that are meaningful to the individual within the environments in which the person lives and functions. Occupational therapists work with people of all ages who, because of physical, developmental, social or emotional problems, need specialized assistance to lead independent, productive and satisfying lives.

Who Needs Occupational Therapy?

People who have work related injuries, stroke, heart attack, mental health problems, arthritis, burns, hand injuries, amputations, multiple sclerosis or other serious illnesses that impact independence in life activities.

Occupational Therapists, as members of the health care team, work closely with doctors, nurses, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists or audiologists, and other health care professionals.
