What is Occupational therapy?
Occupational therapy is about supporting people to manage essential daily activities. We work with people who have a substantial and or permanent disability, to help them be independent and as safe as possible. We also consider any carers’ needs and abilities. 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
