Occupational therapy involves teaching the patient skills that enable him to cope in daily settings. The goal is to assist the patient in managing with everyday activities safely and independently.
The goal of occupational therapy is to:
- assess the patient’s occupational skills and level of coping ability as well as his need for additional assistance;
- assess the need for aids contributing to independent coping, giving recommendations as to selecting customised aids and teaching the patient how to use them;
- plan for adjustments in the daily setting that promote the patient's independent coping and make it easier to care for him;
- teach the patient skills that enable him to cope in everyday settings, depending on his condition;
- in case of hand and wrist problems, carry out hand therapy sessions, make hand and finger orthoses and provide counselling as to the selection of orthoses.
