What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational Therapy is designed to promote health, prevent injury or disability and develops, improves or sustains an individuals' level of independence.
Occupational therapists help people to carry out the activities that they want or need to do to live their lives to the fullest.
They do this by not only considering the physical effects of ageing, disease or injury, but also the environmental and psycho-social factors that influence individuals to carry out activites of daily life.
The most common referrals for our OT services include:
Specialised Seating and pressure relief
Assisting activities of daily living (ADL’s) e.g. showering, eating, correct use of aids
Housing adaptations assessments and reports
Recommendations for environmental changes to assist activities of daily living
