Occupational therapy helps to solve problems that interfere with clients’ ability to perform tasks that matter to them, such as going about their personal care, participating in paid or unpaid work, having fun (hobbies, activities, sports). Occupational therapy can therefore help anyone with a physical or mental health problem that limits their ability to perform their activities.
The occupational therapist is able to assess the level of functional abilities of a person through questionnaires, tests, scenarios, etc. He then draws a parallel between these results and the requirements to perform the tasks that the client wishes to achieve. With the client, treatment goals are then set. The client is therefore at the heart of the entire occupational therapy approach.
Our occupational therapists form a team, sharing their knowledge and experiences, in order to promote the best possible occupational performance for their clients, who are at the center of this team!
To help the client achieve his or her goals, the occupational therapist may, among other things, propose a program of graduated activities and task simulations aimed at restoring function, give advice, teach different working methods and propose tools or adapted equipment that will promote customer autonomy.
As previously mentioned, occupational therapy can help anyone with a physical or mental health problem that limits their ability to perform their activities.
