Occupational therapy promotes health by enabling people to perform meaningful and purposeful occupations. Occupation is defined as "active process of living: from the beginning to the end of life, ... occupations are all the active processes of looking after ourselves and others, enjoying life, and being socially and economically productive over the lifespan and in various contexts."
These include (but are not limited to) work, leisure, self care, domestic and community activities. Occupational therapists work with individuals, families, groups, communities and organizations to facilitate health, well-being and justice through engagement in occupation.
Occupational Therapy is by doctor referral, with treatment available onsite at Knox Orthopaedics by the Baxter Regional Medical Center Therapy Department or by independent therapists located in Mountain Home or surrounding areas.
