Learn more about occupational therapy

In order to understand what occupational therapy entails, it is necessary to first explore the meaning of occupation in this context. Occupation does not refer solely to one’s job but rather to the myriad of processes involved in actively living life.  For example:   taking care of ourselves, taking care of other people, being socially active, being economically productive, and enjoying life.


This means that occupational therapy is concerned with the individual being able to function in at least five capacities:

  • Domestic activities such as cleaning one’s home and preparing meals
  • Work activities, both physical and mental
  • Leisure activities including sports or hobbies
  • Self-care such as personal maintenance, dress and hygiene
  • Community activities
