What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational Therapy (OT) is a client-centered health profession concerned with the primary goal of enabling people to participate in the activities of everyday life. Our therapists achieve this by working with you to enhance your ability to engage in the roles you want to, need to, or are expected to do, or by modifying the tasks or the environment to better support your valued activity participation.

Our Occupational Therapy Services Include:

  • In-Home Safety Assessment: Assessing your home environment to identify potential safety and accessibility issues. This assessment may be completed following an injury or at any time a functional change occurs due to aging or health-related concerns.    
  • Ergonomic Assessments: We evaluate your work environment and suggest modifications to prevent injuries and enhance comfort and productivity.
  • Return to Driving Screening: Evaluating your physical, visual perceptual and cognitive abilities for returning to drive. We can help you navigate the Ministry of Ontario’s protocols for returning to drive following a medical event.
  • Mobility Device Assessment and Recommendation: Assessing your need for a mobility device such as a walker or wheelchair and applying for community and provincial funding support on your behalf.
  • Adaptive Techniques and Equipment: Learn new ways of performing tasks or utilize adaptive equipment to improve your independence at home or work.
  • Cognitive Rehabilitation: Strategies to manage and improve cognitive challenges that may be affecting your work or daily activities.
  • Hand Therapy: Customized exercises and treatments to improve the strength and dexterity of your hands and arms.
