An occupational therapist’s job is not easy. They work with people who are recovering from physical or mental illness and help them return to the needs of their day-to-day life a little smoother than they would otherwise. As challenging as the work is for their patients, it isn’t hard to imagine that it is difficult for the OT as well. Getting the occupational therapist in your life a gift just because or for a special occasion will help boost them up, especially if they are feeling tired or maybe even low.
