Occupational Therapy

Alongside You Ladner

Alongside You is an integrated health agency in the heart of Ladner, BC. Our aim is to provide quality, competent, and equitable services in health care that are accessible across the full spectrum of abilities. We provide counselling, group therapy, occupational therapy, registered dietician services, and creative arts programs for the community.

WHAT IS OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY?

 

Individuals who have difficulty participating in their day-to-day activities may benefit from Occupational Therapy. These activities can include anything a person does in a day including self-care, leisure, education, home management, volunteering, or work. An Occupational Therapist (OT) will assess and evaluate a client’s occupational performance – one’s ability to choose, organize, and effectively and safely perform their everyday activities. Goals are set collaboratively between the client and therapist and are aimed at improving function and quality of life.

Some ways an OT may be able to help:

  • Educating and enabling clients to improve their community living skills (e.g. accessing community resources, using public transit, money management, etc.);
  • Assessing and modifying clients’ home and community environments to improve safety and independence;
  • Promoting health and wellness by identifying and addressing barriers and challenges to healthy living;
  • Maximizing function and minimizing detrimental effects of illness or injury, through activity modification or use of adaptive equipment.

If any of the above services sound like they would be of help to you, please give our office a call. We would be happy to discuss your individual situation and offer suggestions of how we might help.
