October is OT Month!

Every October, OT Works! celebrate our incredible team of Occupational Therapists and the difference they make in their clients’ lives!  

The theme proposed for OT Month by the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists (CAOT) this year is I ❤️ OT!  Join us in celebrating! 

Here’s why Pamela Russell, OT Works! Clinical Director, loves being an OT: 

“I love OT because it truly facilitates a connection between people; by being client centred, we hear their stories, we share experiences at a time they often feel vulnerable or alone, and together we develop tangible, practical, creative ways to regain meaningful occupations and quality of life.” 

 Our Occupational Therapists at OT Works! provide individualized, community-based rehabilitation to clients in their homes, workplaces and communities. 

Our approach combines an understanding of our client’s experience with objective, functional information and medical opinion, to facilitate a meaningful and successful recovery. We provide active-based, goal-driven, client-centered therapy that considers the whole person. 

Our values of Quality, Respect, Objectivity, Promptness, Creativity and Empathy guide our OT and business practices.  

Aging in Place 

One way to celebrate OT month is by providing more information to the public about the importance of OT.  

Occupational Therapists provide a holistic approach to clients in their recovery, allowing them to get back to the activities they love.  

OTs also play an essential role in aging in place. If you or your loved ones want to age safely at home, an Occupational Therapist can help.
