Occupational Therapy is a profession that involves the patient and determining their meaningful activities of daily life, especially to enable or encourage participation in such activities, in spite of impairments or limitations in physical or mental functions.
Occupational Therapists (OTs) aim to enable and empower people to maximise their potential to engage in meaningful and purposeful activities. We will help you to be as independent as possible in essential activities of everyday living and facilitate a safe discharge from hospital back to the community. This may require us to liase with other agencies on your behalf to provide essential equipment and adaptations for your home. Sometimes we will undertake a home assessment visit with you to your home.We can also provide splints and pressure garments following an assessment.
