Occupational therapy

What is occupational therapy?

Occupational therapy is about helping physically disabled/frail people of all ages to be as independent and safe as possible in their everyday lives and home environment. Any carers’ needs and abilities to assist will also be considered.

  • preparing a meal or drink for yourself
  • washing
  • dressing
  • bathing
  • getting to the toilet

We can then make recommendations, which amongst other suggestions can include some or all of the following:

  • working with you to find a new way of doing a task
  • providing specialist equipment such as specialised seating
  • providing minor adaptations like grab rails
  • arranging major adaptations like ramps or stair lifts to avoid using steps
  • where carers are assisting a person manually with transfers/walking, advice and equipment can be provided to make this easier and safer for both the carer and the person.
