Jersey City, NJ, April 7, 2017 – April is the American Occupational Therapy Association’s (AOTA) National Occupational Therapy Month, organized by the fund to promote awareness of occupational therapy, and Alaris Health is honoring the occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants and students in practice, education, research and science who dedicate their lives to this important work.
Helping to improve peoples’ lives is at the heart of everything that our Alaris Health Member Centers do, and occupational therapy is a critical part of that. Occupational therapists develop strategies, solutions and modifications that are customized to each individual’s unique habits, behaviors and lifestyles to empower them to live their lives to the fullest and thrive in their environments. The goal is to improve an individual’s overall health as well as prevent or help them live better with an injury, illness or disability.
Occupation therapy is deeply rooted in science, data, experience and best practices and looks at the big picture, taking into account individuals’ psychological, emotional and physical factors and their environment to:
- Reach goals
- Maintain the highest level possible of function
- Focus on what matters most to them
- Sustain or rebuild their independence
- Engage in daily activities that the have or want to do.
Occupational Therapist Doctor Neil Dave said, “One of the best feelings as an occupational therapist is helping people get back to what they love to do. Working for Alaris Health has given me the support and structure to make this happen”.
Alaris Health is grateful for and appreciative of all of its occupational therapists for their dedication and hard work.
