Expert Healthcare

“Occupational therapy is a client-centered health profession, concerned with promoting health and wellbeing through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to optimally engage in activities of daily living, work related tasks, and life roles by experiencing task satisfaction and improved Quality of life.

Occupational therapy interventions focus on adapting the environment, modifying the task, teaching the skill, and educating the client/family in order to increase participation in and performance of daily activities, particularly those that are meaningful to the client.”
