What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy is a health profession concerned with promoting health and well-being through occupation. Occupation refers to everything that people do during the course of everyday life. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the occupations which give meaning and purpose to their lives. Occupational therapists may assume different roles such as advising on health risks in the workplace, safe driving for older adults, and programs to promote mental health for youth.
An occupational therapist is a University graduate with a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited occupational therapy program, recognized and ascribed by L’Ordre professionnel des ergothérapeutes du Quebec , allowing them to practice occupational therapy in the Province.
Our Occupational Therapy services include:
• Driving Assessments
