Recreational Therapy

Friends at the Zoo

Recreation therapy, or therapeutic recreation, strives to improve the functioning and independence of individuals who are ill or disabled. Recreation therapists provide services in clinical facilities and in the community.

Sycamore Services Recreation Therapists incorporate a variety of interventions to treat individuals with physical, cognitive, and emotional conditions. Recreation therapists educate their patients to make them better-informed participants in their own health care. As a result, patients are taught to use activity to build confidence and reduce stress and anxiety. Sycamore therapists are certified by the National Council for Therapeutic Recreation.

A recreation therapist’s responsibilities vary according to the setting and the patients served. Most recreation therapists are involved in the assessment of physical, mental, emotional, and social functioning. They will utilize information from standardized evaluations, observations, medical records, medical staff, family, and the patients themselves. The therapist will then develop and implement a plan for therapeutic interventions to meet the individual’s needs and interests.
