What Is Occupational Therapy? 

Occupational therapy is a client-centered health profession that involves therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations) to enhance an individual’s ability to participate in daily life. It helps people across the lifespan to do the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of daily activities. 

At TRU Healthcare, our occupational therapists collaborate with clients to better understand their needs, their goals, and the barriers they face. This client-centric approach allows us to develop individualized intervention plans designed to improve their ability to carry out daily activities, adapt their environment or task, or teach them new skills.
