Occupational therapy

Adult Social Care Occupational Therapy Service

Occupational therapy is about supporting people to manage essential daily activities.

Daily activities may be:

  • getting in and out of the bath or shower
  • getting around your home, and going and down stairs
  • sometimes feeling unsafe in your own home, such as the possibility of falling or forgetting to switch off taps or cookers.

If you have a carer, the Occupation Therapy service also considers the needs and abilities of your carer.

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

  • working with you to find a different way to manage tasks you have difficulty with
  • providing minor adaptations e.g. grab rails to help get in and out of your bath
  • arranging major adaptations like stairlifts and ramps 
  • advice and equipment to make things easier and safer for carers
