Our Services are available for seniors and adults, caregivers, groups, businesses and organizations. If you do not see what you are looking for below or are wondering how we can help, please contact us.

Assessment and Individual Occupational Therapy
For seniors and adults who have experienced a change in their ability to perform everyday activities due to physical, cognitive, or mental health issues or are looking ahead with the goal of staying independent as they age, we:
- Meet with clients at home, work, in the community, or at our clinic
- Work with clients to identify challenges and set goals for therapy
- Provide assessment andrecommendations based on client goals
- Provide rehabilitation, education, support for acquisition of assistive technology and adaptive equipment (for example, bathroom equipment to help prevent falls, canes, wheelchairs and walkers)
- Provide training for skills and strategies (for example, energy conservation, joint protection, new ways to do activities)
- Assist clients to navigate the health care system
- Provide referrals to other relevant services
Formal and informal caregivers can play a vital role in the lives of those living with physical, cognitive, and mental health challenges. This role often comes with physical, emotional, and psychological demands. In order to support caregivers to perform this important role, we provide education and training in the following areas:
- Transfers and good body mechanics
- Strategies and use of adaptive equipment at home and in the community
- Self care, stress management, and resilience
Education and training can take place individually or in groups in our clinic or onsite.
Groups and Workshops
We offer groups and workshops on topics related to health and wellness. Below is a listing of what is currently being offered but we are always open to developing workshops on new and relevant topics. Please contact us to see what we can develop to meet your needs.
Resilience for Everyday Living
This six week workshop series introduces participants to skills and strategies to increase their ability to "bounce back" from difficult life events and manage everyday ups and downs. The format is a combination of presentation, interactive group activities, and individual work. This series takes place in a relaxed atmosphere with a maximum of 10 participants. Groups meet for 1.5 hours per week for a total of six sessions. Examples of some of the topics covered are exploring optimism, gratitude, goal setting, and mindfulness.
Beliefs: Shaping Your Reality
This two hour workshop encourages participants to explore their patterns of thinking. Sometimes what we believe about situations can lead us to feel and behave in unhelpful ways. learning how to identify and challenge these beliefs can help us to shape a happier, healthier reality for our everyday lives.
The Occupation of Sleep
Poor sleep can negatively impact so much of how we feel and how we think and behave in everyday life. This two hour workshop introduces participants to the basics of sleep (why, how much, when), provides an overview of common sleep problems, and introduces strategies to support participants to improve their sleep.
Businesses and Organizations
Adaptability Therapy and Consulting works with businesses and organizations to increase physical accessibility of their spaces and to enhance customer service to better meet the needs of seniors and persons with disabilities. We know that increasing accessibility not only helps people to access a space, but also makes people feel welcome and makes good business sense!
We can customize training for your business or provide a three hour introduction to disability and accessibility in an interactive workshop entitled "Access for All". Please contact us to learn what we can do to meet the needs of your business or organization.
