Lifestyle Redesign

Occupational Therapy Programs Informed by Lifestyle Redesign®           

These programs offer the client tools to attain and maintain healthy habits throughout the day.  To infuse healthy habits, participants practice daily activities like cooking, grocery shopping, and exercising.  Topics such as eating healthy, exercising safely, balancing life activities, managing stress, and participating in activities that are meaningful are discussed in detail.

The goal is for the individual to maximize his/her pursuit of meaningful activities and fully participate in home and community occupations.  Therapy sessions are focused on analyzing daily activities, practicing healthy occupations and discussing the challenges and opportunities encountered when embedding new habits in a typical day.  Each participant sets his or her own personal and achievable goals.
