2. Treatment is Personalized
Therapeutic Recreation Ontario notes that this field of healthcare involves closely working with the patient, sometimes over a long period of time. The process starts with a needs assessment to determine “appropriate personalized interventions,” notes the source.
The therapist connects with the patient on a personal level so they can guide the course of treatment together, and a number of factors are considered from current abilities to culture to the guidelines of the agency where the therapist is working. This helps establish realistic goals for the patient to work towards, adds the organization.
