An occupational therapist advises and trains people who have difficulties carrying out daily activities. This way, people improve their living, working and relaxing conditions. Specifically, the occupational therapist will look for solutions and/or compensation strategies together. This way the patient can keep participating in our rapidly changing society.
More concretely, the focus is for example on exercise sessions, ergonomics, aids, fall prevention and providing information to informal carers and those close to them.
