Occupational Therapy

The occupational therapy team offer a range of services to in-patients, day service patients and out-patients to enable people to carry out any activities (occupations) that are meaningful. For example:

  • Self-maintenance activities e.g. washing and dressing, preparing meals and shopping
  • Leisure activities and hobbies
  • Work (paid, unpaid or voluntary)

Treatment may include

  • Goal setting to help you achieve whatever activities are meaningful to you
  • Use of assistive devices to reduce effort in carrying out activities
  • Adaptations to your house to promote independence and facilitate a safe environment
