Occupational therapy is a dynamic health care profession that promotes engagement in meaningful daily and routine occupations, those activities that give meaning and purpose to our lives.

Occupational therapists work with clients, families, groups and populations to promote health and wellness, prevent illness or injury, develop or restore functional and adaptation skills, facilitate social engagement, and create accessible and supportive environments.
