Occupational Therapy

Helping Hand Institute of Rehabilitation Sciences provides specialized health care for people who have short-term or long-term disabilities that began during childhood, adult hood or old age. We help children, adults and their families improve their health, achieve greater well-being and enjoy life.

What is Occupational Therapy?

Your life is made up of occupations—meaningful everyday activities. These occupations can include many roles, such as being a parent, a friend, a spouse, a computer operator, a cook, a tennis player, or an artist. We gener­ally don’t think about our daily occupations until we have trouble doing them. Everyone has occupations—from the toddler whose occupations are play and learning to develop important skills, to the older adult whose occupations are engaging with family and friends and managing his or her home. If you are recovering from an accident or injury, your valued occupations may be disrupted. Occupational therapy incorporates your valued occupations into the rehabilitation process.

Why would I need occupational therapy?

Imagine if an accident, injury, disease, or condition made it difficult for you to participate in your daily activities.

A wrist injury means that getting dressed in the morning is painful.

Arthritis makes driving chal­lenging.

Autism may hinder a child from interacting effectively with classmates.

A traumatic brain injury keeps a wounded warrior out of active duty because of difficulties with memory and organizational skills or a small change in your activities or the environment could prevent a future condition (such as using ergo­nomics at work to avoid injury).

Occupational therapy allows people across the lifespan to do the activities they want and need to do.

HHIRS Occupational therapy services

An occupational therapist will evaluate your situation and, with input from you (and perhaps your family, care provider, or friend), develop individualized goals that allow you to resume or pursue your valued occupations. After you develop goals with your occupational therapist, you will work together on a specific intervention plan to help improve or maintain your ability to perform daily activities and reach your goals getting back to your life.

Occupational therapy practitioners can widen their focus to groups or communities too, developing and implementing programs that promote healthy behaviors, or address particular issues such as older driving, community transitions for returning soldiers, homelessness, troubled youth, mental health, and addictions.

When do I Need Occupational therapy:

Have you or a family member ever been diagnosed with a new health condition and found yourself asking, “now what?”

Maybe you have a child with autism who is having trouble succeeding in school, or an aging parent who wants to remain at home but you’re worried about safety issues, or you are experiencing depression and having trouble doing everyday activities.

Occupational therapy can help you answer that “now what?” ques­tion. An occupational therapy practitioner will keep the focus on the things you need and want to do—your goals, your activities, and your independence. With occupa­tional therapy services you can:

Achieve goals, such as helping your teenager with a developmental disability gain the skills to transition from high school to independent living as an adult.

Stay as healthy and productive as possible, while managing a chronic medical condition.

Maintain or rebuild your independence, such as using assistive devices so you can care for yourself after a stroke.

Participate in the everyday activities important to you, such as driving, visiting friends, going to Mosque, and other activities that keep you involved with your community.

In short, an occupational therapy practitioner can help you live life to its fullest no matter your health condi­tion, disability, or risk factors
