Occupational therapy

Are you unable to continue your everyday activities, like hobbies, social contacts, work, or housekeeping, due to decreased energy levels, cognitive problems, and/or physical impairments? Our occupational therapist can help you find solutions and can offer you tools to help you distribute your energy, structure your day, continue your work, improve your posture, and adapt the way you sit.

What can we do for you?

Some examples:

  • During an occupational therapy session, we look at your posture while you do your daily activities, like vacuuming, reaching on the kitchen counter, sitting at your computer, or lying down.
  • During an energy coaching session, we teach you ways to efficiently use your energy levels to establish a balance between activities and rest. We can try to expand your activity level, step by step, in terms of time, frequency, and intensity.
