Occupational Therapy - Adult

Enabling your independence and engagement in home, school and community environments.

The Occupational Therapists in the Adult Services Team perform diverse and flexible roles in the provision of occupational therapy to support and encourage people to be safe and independent in their Activities of Daily Living.

A key aim of occupational therapy is to help you develop or maintain a satisfying routine of meaningful everyday activities. Activities that can give you a sense of direction and purpose. Occupational therapists treat injured, ill, or disabled people to help them develop, recover, improve, as well as maintain the skills needed for everyday living.

Our Adult Occupational Therapist (OT) service helps clients over 18 to improve or maintain skills for day-to-day activities and well-being. Clients talk to the OT about activities that are important and valuable to them and which ones they are finding difficult to do because of an injury, disability or diagnosis. OT shelp you achieve or maintain independence and work out ways you can realise your full potential at the home and in the community. This could include help with household jobs, hygiene, getting dressed and cooking. The OT might suggest aids or equipment, home modifications, leisure activities and community activities to help you.
