OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

WHAT IS OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY?

An overall definition of occupational therapy states, “Occupational therapy is a client-centered health profession concerned with promoting health and well-being through occupation.”

 

Occupational therapy is “the therapeutic use of occupations, including everyday life activities with individuals, groups, populations, or organizations to support participation, performance, and function in roles and situations in any setting.”

 

Our occupational therapists aim to enhance the lives of clients at Greenhouse by enabling them to participate in their meaningful activities and occupations. We look at clients with a holistic approach keeping all of their physical, emotional and spiritual needs in mind.
