OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

WHAT IS OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY?

Occupational therapy provides support to people whose health or disability makes it hard for them to perform everyday tasks or do the things they would like to do.

An occupational therapist, often called an OT, can help you to maintain, regain or improve your independence by using different techniques, introducing specialised equipment or making changes to your environment. They will identify your strengths and difficulties, help with solutions and support you in taking part in everyday life.

The focus of Occupational Therapy within Full Circle Wellness is to improve each of our client’s quality of life and independence. We aim to improve their proficiency with common daily activities, from getting dressed, to cooking and moving about the home or getting out in the community.
