Occupational Therapists (OTs) work with a range of people including those who have physical, mental and/ or social problems, either as a result of accident, illness or ageing. They are aware of the impact that changes in circumstances can have on individual’s independence and confidence.
OTs are responsible for carrying out assessments and providing services that help people remain as independent as possible in their own homes.
If you, or a person you care for, find doing day to day things difficult, the Occupational Therapy service is here to help you become as independent and safe as possible in your daily activities.
You will be able to speak with someone trained to give you specialist advice about the difficulties you are having. If there is a simple piece of equipment that could help you, they will give you details. There are some pieces of equipment that they may be able to supply for you or your family to fit yourselves. However, if the help you need is more complex and you meet our eligibility criteria, they will arrange for a referral to be sent to your local Occupational Therapy team.
