This Therapy is dedicated to children who are sick at home or when in a hospital organization (for example, children with rare or chronic, progressive or incurable diseases).
The purpose is to work with these children and their families to help them get involved in day-to-day activities in a happy and productive way.
What do I do and why?
My focus is on assessment and intervention of a child's daily activities (or 'occupations') including: self care, school and play. I also play a significant role in health promotion and education.
My intention is to take care and occupy children in a useful manner during illness or recovery, while Caregivers rest and take care of themselves or their professional/ personal lives.
And why do caregivers need help?
Because there are times when everyone needs help: when the child is sick, the world seems altered.
The family is in stress and has no time for everyday life.
Take peace for yourself by giving your child to whom - excluding the family - knows how to take care with professionalism, ethics and attention.
I am used to work in an acute care environment where the children's multi-system medical problems and functional outcomes are complex.
My role with each child in each program is based on unique tasks and all are based on the needs of the child and family.
Also, I work very closely with other rehabilitation professionals such as Physiotherapists, and the rest of the interprofessional team.
Family is an essential part of the child's health care team and are often involved in occupational therapy treatment programs e.g. feeding or development.
