Occupational Therapy is a person-centred profession that aims to promote health through effective participation in everyday occupations. An Occupational Therapist defines your occupations as your tasks and activities that you complete throughout your day.
Did you know…..
Our occupations throughout our day are individualised and may differ from others due to our cultural beliefs, our values, our social status, our age or even our gender.
At Your Health Hub our trained Occupational Therapists will tailor the assessment and treatment process to suit your individual needs.
Occupational Therapy is unique in the way that it does not solely focus on the physical limitations of an injury or illness but also considers the psychological and social limitations that may occur.
“You treat a disease: you win, you lose. You treat a person, I guarantee you, you will win, no matter what the outcome.” – Patch Adams
To truly understand how a person functions in their everyday life, an Occupational Therapist will assess an individuals’ occupational performance (how we perform in our daily tasks and environment). This may include considerations of:
- Your behavioural patterns
- Self-maintenance and leisure
- Physical, cognitive, relationship with self and relationships with others
- Mind, body and spirit
- Social, cultural and other environmental influences.
Each assessment varies depending on the clients’ current needs and future goals.
