October 27th is World Occupational Therapy Day!
OTs make a difference in the lives of many today, here in Canada and around the world.
Occupational Therapists help people improve their function in their daily lives. Occupational therapy is a type of health care that helps to solve the problems that interfere with a person’s ability to do the things that are important to them – everyday things like:
- Self-care – getting dressed, eating, moving around the house,
- Being productive – going to work or school, participating in the community, and
- Leisure activities – sports, gardening, social activities.
Occupational therapy is a regulated profession in Canada. All of our occupational therapists at OT Works! are registered with the College of Occupational Therapists of British Columbia (COTBC)
At OT Works, this month we celebrate our team and the difference OTs make to their clients!
World Occupational Therapy Day – October 27th – Reimagine Doing
The theme ‘Reimagine Doing’ celebrates the expertise of occupational therapy for reimagining participation in occupations that provide value and meaning to everyday life
OTs help their clients in a number of different ways including Driving Desensitization, Ergonomic Assessments, Life Skills for Anxiety, Falls Prevention and even Return to Work Planning.
OTs can help you getting back to work, to school, to the sport that you love, and more.
To our OT Works! team and to all OTs we say thank you!
