April is OT Month! so we answered the question "What is Occupational Therapy and why is it important?"
We’re glad you asked! Occupational Therapy is an important part of the rehabilitation process. It supports people who’ve experienced injuries or have physical, mental, or cognitive disabilities which may impact daily life skills across the lifespan. OT’s use occupation to help regain their life skills, and return to normal daily activities that are essential to each person’s life. Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants are specially trained health professionals. They focus on understanding a holistic view of a person’s life, addressing life skills through occupation such as cooking, cleaning, bathing, and dressing. In this way a person can regain lost function, or learn new skills that will support an improved quality of life. At Concept Rehab, we know that everyone has a unique story and our Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants work with each patient to know their story and tailor a treatment plan that promotes their unique needs so they may stay engaged in life and enjoy the independence they love. Because at Concept Rehab, Your Story Matters.
