As a dedicated occupational therapist, he focuses on the facilitation of the development and the rehabilitation of patients who are suffering from physical, mental and physical disabilities. This is done by planning administering the appropriate and medically prescribed occupational therapy. He also helps patients in developing or regaining mental or physical functioning, or adjusting to their disabilities by implementing programs that help them cope with their condition.
Occupational therapy helps people of different age backgrounds participate in the activities that they are interested in. With the help of a licensed occupational therapist, patients are helped to strengthen their upper body, thus improving their balance, improving home safety, teaching them how to use the recommended adaptive equipment, and making sure that their family and caregivers are educated on the best ways to take care of their loved one.
