Answer

Occupational therapy focuses on the activities of daily living (ADLs), including bathing, dressing, feeding, and hygiene maintenance. Occupational therapists provide a program to maximize the use of the arms and hands with functional activities; they also address the cognitive issues that affect daily independent function.
