SHP Occupational Therapy

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy focuses on helping individuals of all ages participate in meaningful activities and daily tasks that are essential for their overall well-being and independence. Individuals who have disabilities, injuries, or other limitations that are impacting their daily lives can turn to our team of qualified occupational therapists in Michigan to restore their independence and live life on their own terms.

Occupational therapists often work with individuals to address activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing, eating, and household tasks. They may also focus on instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) like cooking, managing finances, and using technology. Furthermore, occupational therapy can support individuals in areas such as work or school-related tasks, leisure and recreational activities, and social participation.

  • Injuries
