Occupational therapists work with individuals to explore activities related to your lifestyle, needs and goals. Together you create a plan for improving your self-care, productivity and leisure.
Individuals must be a registered client of CMHA Thames Valley in at least one other program in order to receive OT services.
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 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.
Referrals can be made by the CMHA staff member who is engaged with the client.
