Occupational Therapy (OT)
The daily meaningful routines and activities we carry out are what Occupational Therapists describe as ‘Occupations’. Occupational Therapy provides practical support to empower people to facilitate recovery and overcome barriers preventing them from doing the activities (or occupations) that matter to them. This can involve supporting people and families with managing long term conditions, giving advice on safety within the home and signposting to other useful services.
