Hettie de Beer Occupational Therapy
“Hettie de Beer Occupational Therapy aims to enhance the quality of life of those who are unable to do so independently. Empathy and respect are essential in understanding those whom we serve; and personalisation, customisation, diversity and creative engagement enable us to facilitate their optimal rehabilitation. By having a true appreciation of how people live their lives, we can best serve their needs and increase functional independence at home, in the workplace and in the community. Therefore each individual’s situation, how big or small, is approached with care and understanding”.
Ability is the centre of an occupational therapist’s (OT’s) work. When someone’s ability to live an independent and fulfilling life is compromised, an OT can help the person to learn skills, develop compensatory strategies or utilise equipment to regain the confidence to lead a satisfying life.
HDBOT was founded in June 2008. With the above philosophy in mind, we specialise in providing guidance to individuals with brain injuries/illnesses, mental health issues, or those who have suffered a loss as a result of an accident or illness. Our treatment goals are to regain optimal functional independence, to improve the overall quality of life, facilitate community re-integration and to increase productivity where this has been impaired.
Our renowned personalised approach enables us to provide occupational therapy assessments and rehabilitation treatments to a wide range of clients; from school-aged children to the elderly.
We provide a wide variety of services to various fee payers in the Lower Mainland of Vancouver.
