Occupational Therapists assist you in participating in everyday activities, such as personal care, getting around your home, getting in and out of bed or chairs and domestic tasks.
Our Occupational Therapists can assess your current situation and suggest interventions like specialised home modifications (hand rails, ramps, bathroom modifications etc), equipment aids to help with personal care, working in the kitchen, wheelchair and scooter mobility etc.
