Occupational therapy enables people to achieve health, well-being and life satisfaction through participation in purposeful activities of daily living.

Our aim is to help patients with a wide variety of conditions to maximise their independence as possible with purposeful everyday activities of daily within their home environment and local community.

We achieve this by;

  • Working closely with the multi-disciplinary team within Community and Acute Hospitals, Community Health Professionals, colleagues in Social Services and the voluntary sector to assist timely and safe discharges home from hospital and prevent admission.
  • Providing assessment, information, advice, and treatment for adults with a recent alteration to their physical ability to rehabilitate them back to their previous level of independence with meaningful activities of daily living. 
  • Setting specific rehabilitation goals to work towards in collaboration between the Occupational Therapist and client. i.e., Independence with washing and dressing, preparing a hot drink or meal. 
  • Providing advice and support for alternative engagement techniques. 
  • Providing opportunities to practice skills under the supervision and support from Occupational Therapy Assistants and Enablers/Rehabilitation Assistance to build confidence and well as skills.
  • Utilising equipment and small aids as a rehabilitation tool.
