Practitioners help clients find relief from pain and suffering and improve their quality of life by supporting their engagement in daily life occupations that clients find meaningful and purposeful. The occupational therapy practitioner considers environmental and contextual factors (e.g., caregiver training, accessibility of objects or places in the environment, social contacts available to prevent isolation), as well as personal factors (e.g., decreased endurance, increased anxiety) that may be limiting a client’s abilities and satisfaction when performing desired occupations. The occupational therapy practitioner collaborates with the client and family members throughout the occupational therapy process to identify occupations that are especially meaningful and to incorporate strategies that support occupational engagement. Loss of independence and role can result in social death prior to biological death. Occupational therapy can help a person to adopt new and appropriate functions and roles and to maintain self-esteem.
