Occupational Therapy

Our occupational therapists help children and adults with disability participate in everyday life.

What is occupational therapy?

The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the ‘occupations’ of everyday life. This include things like self-care tasks, household tasks, work and participation in hobbies and interests.

Occupational therapists work collaboratively with people of all ages to help them live their life to the fullest by providing equipment, technology, changes to daily tasks and activities, or strategies to enable them to do the things that are meaningful to them.

Our Occupational Therapy Services

Working as part of therapy teams, our qualified occupational therapists help people with disability participate in daily activities, increase their independence and achieve their goals in life.
