Cancer and cancer treatment(s) can disrupt people's lifestyle. Everyday activities, such as feeding or dressing one's self may become difficult or even lost. When illness or emotional problems interfere with the cancer patient's normal function, the occupational therapist works with the patient to evaluate and develop skills and strategies for activities of daily living necessary for self-care, as well as home, work and leisure activities. In addition to therapeutic services, the occupational therapist may assess for and loan specialized equipment such as adapted equipment for bathrooms, dressing or eating aids.
