Occupational therapy is a patient-centred health profession concerned with promoting health and wellbeing through occupation. Occupational Therapy is not solely about getting a person back to work, unless that is what their goal is. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by working with people and communities to enhance their ability to engage in the occupations they want to, need to, or are expected to do, or by modifying the occupation or the environment to better support their occupational engagement.
Our team of Occupational Therapists can conduct home visits to assess what is required to assist each patient achieve their goals.
Did you know that the staff here at LiveWell are also qualified to perform Functional Capacity Evaluations (FCE)?
We have undergone training with ErgoScience, one of the world leaders in FCE training.
A Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE) is a comprehensive battery of performance-based tests that is used commonly to determine ability for work, activities of daily living or leisure activities. An FCE is a detailed examination and evaluation that objectively measures the evaluee’s current level of function. Measurements of function from an FCE are used to make return-to-work (activity) decisions, disability determinations or to design rehabilitation plans. An FCE measures the ability of an individual to perform functional or work-related tasks, and predicts the potential to sustain these tasks over a defined time frame. The report provides information that can assist with work place re: training and identifying a person’s physically capabilities following injury or illness.
