Think of how the definition of “occupation ‘ is a job or profession. Occupational therapists help patients accomplish their everyday jobs or activities such as bathing, eating, and dressing. An occupational therapist is there to ensure that patients can get to the point of doing the things they want and need to do for themselves. The end goal of occupational therapy treatment is for patients to achieve independence and maintain a positive quality of life. By pursuing occupational therapy with Rehab Smarter, patients have the luxury of receiving advice from the comfort of their own home. All of Rehab Smarter’s services are offered via telehealth.
