Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy becomes necessary when solutions to performing or engaging in desired occupations become difficult.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists enable people who encounter challenges in choosing, organising, and performing activities/tasks/roles of everyday living to do these “better” or differently. They also facilitate the process of people finding satisfaction in performing daily tasks. Occupational Therapists are therefore agents of change and perform therapy by engaging their clients in work, leisure, self-care or play activities or a combination of these.

The principles upon which occupational therapy is build are impairment reduction, adaption, accommodation, skills acquisition, social reconstruction and occupational justice.  The main aim is therefore, participation in life and life satisfaction.    Occupational therapists can address performance related problems that are caused by health conditions such as: Orthopaedic, Cardiology, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Cosmetic Surgery (burns), HIV, Oncology, Geriatric condition, drug/alcohol abuse, Mother and child health & Community development.
