Is This Program For Me?
Individuals must be a registered client of CMHA Thames Valley in at least one other program in order to receive OT services.
What We Offer
- Occupational Therapists (OT) work to help individuals succeed at activities they want or need to do in their chosen environments
- Based on client’s goals, the OT will assess components of the activity, the person, and the environment.
- Individual and group interventions may be directed at making adjustments in these domains to create an environment more conducive to success
OTs work with individuals to explore and address activities related to the person’s lifestyle, needs and goals. Activities may fall into the areas of self-care, productivity, and leisure.
Through a semi-structured interview with the client, all areas of function are examined, including physical and psychological limitations to maintaining self care, home maintenance, productive activities and leisure pursuits. Additional assessments are conducted using activity analysis, home assessments and standardized tests in order to identify the performance components contributing to the client’s dysfunction.
- OTs respect the client as the primary focus of his/her rehabilitation team
- Services are delivered in the client’s home, at a CMHA TVAMHS Site, or in a community setting
- OTs work together with client and other supports to provide a care plan that is coordinated and adaptable
OTs draw from information in occupational therapy and science, recovery, psychiatric rehabilitation, health and other literature to provide services that are evidence-based. Data is collected and analyzed using standardized and individualized methods for assessment and program evaluation.
Outside of London, these services are provided in partnership with other community service providers.
