Occupational Therapy: Jobs For Everyday Living

Achieving Success in Everyday Life

Achieving Success in Everyday Life

Did you know that you have activities in your daily life that are sometimes referred to as”occupations”? We all have three categories of daily activities or occupations:

1. Self-care: these are the things we take for granted that we do everyday to care for ourselves (eating, sleeping, bathing, dressing, toileting).

2. Work: this is the effort to obtain a goal or perform a task (like writing this article).

3. Leisure: these are the things we do for fun (painting, tv, reading, playing the piano, socializing).

Occupational Therapists (OT) are health care professionals who work in a variety of settings including schools, hospitals, outpatient centers, and as in our case at Health Calls, in individual homes.

This short video captures the professional role well:

We celebrate our OT’s who help people remain within their own home.
