At different times of our lives, we seek to find purpose and balance. Occupational therapists assist children to seniors in gaining life skills through the use of various activities. From the basic activities of daily living including dressing, toileting, functional mobility and cooking to assist the person and caregiver in gaining confidence and safety techniques. To knitting a hat to making a kumihimo bracelet, these skills help individuals engage in a repetitive self meditative activity when experiencing overwhelming feelings. Symbolic wind chimes or the creation of a treasure box can assist participants in identifying what is meaningful and not in their lives. Each activity has underlying purposes that assist the individuals in finding purpose and confidence in their lives.
