Occupational Therapy

At Bridges Health, our focus is to encourage rehabilitation through the performance of activities required in daily life.  Our team gives individuals the “skills for the job of living” necessary for independent and satisfying lives. 

“Occupational Therapy is the art and science of enabling engagement in everyday living, through occupation; of enabling people to perform the occupations that foster health and well-being; and of enabling a just and inclusive society so that all people may participate to their potential in the daily occupations of life.” (Townsend & Polatajko, 2007)
