Doing things we want to do, need to do and love to do allows us to live life to the fullest. As health professionals, occupational therapists work with individuals and populations to enhance, support and help restore meaningful engagement in valued activities that may otherwise be compromised by health, age, injury, illness or circumstances. Through doing, occupational therapists promote health and participation for people across the lifespan. Examples include engaging in play and developing social skills among children; building resilience and learning life skills as adolescents; returning to productive work and leisure pursuits after an illness as adults; and maintaining safety and independence in one’s home and driving as older adults.
