“Occupation” means any activity that “occupies” our time. Occupational Therapy helps patients achieve maximum independence in their activities of daily living, which includes dressing, bathing, toileting and self-feeding. Therapists also may address problems with cooking, shopping, finance, household tasks and hobbies. The hospital’s goal is to provide independence through exercise, functional activities, adaptive techniques or special equipment.

The Occupational Therapists determine patients’ abilities and limitations and work to develop all necessary skills for the patients to participate in the roles and activities that he/she finds meaningful.
