Celebrating Occupational Therapy (OT) Week Sun 21st - Sat 27th October, 2018

What is occupational therapy?

Occupational Therapists work with people across the lifespan in all domains of health, illness or injury. An occupational therapists primary focus is to help people live their lives in a sustainable and meaningful way.

Occupational therapists work with people and communities to enhance their ability to engage in the occupations they want to, need to, or are expected to do, or by modifying the occupation or the environment to better support their occupational engagement."
OT Australia Association 

Everything we do in life is in occupation, whether getting dressed in the morning, driving to work, cooking dinner or going for a sunset swim. If illness, pain, injury or disability stops you from doing these things; it can impact quality of life and ability to reach your fullest potential.

Occupational Therapy is where science, creativity and compassion collide.
