“Occupation is simple and intuitive to the experience of all humans…

The things we do in our life roles

The things we do to be who we are

The things we do to create life and world into all it can become

… however the finer details reveal there is mot to occupation than meets the eye!”

Occupational therapists (OTs) are concerned with promoting health and wellbeing through occupation. Occupations are everyday activities that people do as individuals, in their families and with communities to occupy time and bring meaning and purpose to their life. The main goal of Occupational Therapy is to empower and support people to participate in the activities of everyday life. To reach this outcome, OTs work with clients and their communities to enhance their ability to engage in the occupations they want to, need to or are expected to do; as well as modifying the occupation or the environment to better support the client’s occupational engagement.
