What does an Occupational Therapist do? The Saskatchewan Society of Occupational Therapists website explains it like this:
“Occupational Therapists are university educated health professionals who work with their clients to assume or resume the skills they need for the job of living. The job of living for all people includes many occupations, these are any tasks or activities that occupy your time and energy such as getting dressed, going out or doing household chores. Occupations will vary with age, abilities, interests & responsibilities. The occupations you want or need to be engaged in may be affected by illness/disease or circumstance. Occupational Therapists will work with you to achieve your occupational goals of everyday life.”
Occupational Therapists (OTs) are vital to the Kinsmen Foundation’s funding process. Almost all equipment applications require a written recommendation from an OT before they will even be brought before the Board.
Our Board of Directors is fortunate enough to have a retired Occupational Therapist as one of its members, to provide her expertise.
The care and assistance that our funding applicants and recipients receive from their OTs are invaluable. OTs help their clients live their best life. We’d like to give a big shout out to all the OTs we work with, who help us continue “Helping People Every Day”.
