Introducing a new, free service for you from dRC!!
Occupational Therapy Services
Occupational therapy (OT) helps people across the lifespan do the things they want and need to do through therapeutic use of daily activities. Through our partnership with TN Wesleyan College, dRC is now offering Occupational Therapy services, free of charge, to our consumers. You may need OT following an injury, illness, or disability, so these OT services will help develop, recover, improve, or maintain the skills needed for daily living. The primary goals of OT are empowering clients to participate in activities, reaching independence, and improving quality of life. We follow individualized, client-centered plans to treat our clients. Occupation refers to those everyday activities that people do, as individuals or with a group, to occupy time and bring meaning and purpose to one’s life. This could be cooking, dressing, bathing, driving, working, going out with friends, or engaging in leisurely activities. Anything at all, personally or professionally, that a person may do throughout their day would be considered an occupation. No matter the setting or age group, occupational therapists work to provide treatments that are individualized to the client’s goals, values, desires, and environments.
We recognize that the journey to recovery is better when the individual enjoys and is motivated to engage in therapy to work toward their individual goals.
If you would like to receive OT services whether in-person at dRC or virtually, please call (865) 637-3666 or email Anne Ray Henson at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
