Adult Occupational Therapy :

Occupational therapists (OT’s) work with all age groups of patients from babies (yes, even premature babies!) to the elderly. In India, one commonly finds OTs working mainly with the pediatric population with hardly any attention given to the rehabilitation needs of adults and very senior individuals. Here’s where TheraCure sets itself apart.

Dr. Pooja Mehta has 6 years of work experience in New Jersey, USA in the capacity of consultant Occupational Therapist. The population age group that she mainly worked with ranged from 40’s to 100 years. Dr. Mehta has robust expertise in assessing which areas of functional performance (household tasks, work/ job related tasks and leisure activities) are impacted, planning and executing complete rehabilitation program to enable clients to achieve their best, most fulfilling lives with a heightened sense of independence.

Occupational therapy assists in the development of required abilities to carry out a person's tasks of daily life and/or in determining strategies to adjust for physical, cognitive, and/or affective limitations in order to enable optimal involvement in these activities.

An occupational therapist can assist in the development of essential competencies in self-care tasks (such as clothing, eating, and grooming), house or job tasks (such as writing, computer usage, meal preparation and management home and life organisation), and leisure tasks (hobbies, recreational activities, social outings). An occupational therapist will also assist in the modification of the surroundings or tasks so that the client can complete them.
