Occupational therapy

Occupational therapy supports patients in regaining the ability to act in everyday life that has been lost due to illness, injury or disability.

The aim of occupational therapy is to support the patient in such a way that their lost abilities and the consequences do not represent a loss of personal independence.  Patients should be able to perform straightforward activities in the home, during leisure time and at work.
