Occupational Therapy Services

  • Full confidential OT assessment in the privacy of your own home at a time of your convenience
  • Full understanding of your requirements and issues you face with the aim to achieve the maximum level of independence
  • Comprehensive written report outlining your requirements and recommending on service provision
  • Assessment may include recommendations relating to suitable mobility or disability products or services

If you wish to discuss your or a relative's requirement in more detail just give us a call and we can arrange a suitable time for you to talk directly to a professional Occupational Therapist about your specific needs. Your Occupational Therapist may recommend having some equipment or adaptations installed. This should make home life more comfortable for you and encourage you to maintain your independence. This, for example could be raising your armchair to make it higher and therefore easier for you to stand from.

Assessment by an Occupational Therapist

Occupational Therapists work with people who have a physical disability, a medical condition, a mental health difficulty or a learning disability. They help individuals who have difficulties with everyday tasks, such as preparing a meal, taking a bath, going up stairs or lifting their legs into bed.

The aim of occupational therapy is to enable individuals to live as independently as possible at home. The occupational therapist can help individuals to adapt to changes in their everyday life and to overcome practical problems. They may do this by providing advice, recommending ways an everyday task can be done differently or recommending equipment or alterations for an individuals home.

How do I know if an Occupational Therapist is properly registered?
All occupational therapists are required to register with the Health Professionals Council (HPC) regulatory body. The HPC is responsible for the conduct, performance and ethical behaviour of its registrants. Visit the HPC website to check the registration status of an Occupational Therapist.
