Work therapy

Work therapy is a process that assesses the influence of the damage and the surroundings on the ability to perform everyday activities (self-care, productivity, leisure time) and uses a relevant activity as a therapeutic medium in order to increase a person’s independence and improve their quality of life. Work therapy is intended for persons whose ability to take care of themselves, to be productive or perform free time activities, is damaged or impaired either through development, or following a physical injury or illness, due to ageing, psychologically, socially or culturally, or through a combination of the mentioned factors.
