Occupational Therapy Services

Our occupational therapists and vocational rehabilitation practitioners work with people to help them break down the barriers preventing them from carrying out their day to day activities. We adopt a bio-psychosocial approach, looking at all aspects of an individual's ability to function. We consider the physical effects of ageing, injury or disease and we address the psychological, community and environmental factors that influence a person's functional ability.

Depending on an individual's situation we will assess the following areas:

  • What they can and cannot do physically e.g. strength, coordination and balance
  • What they can and cannot do mentally e.g. memory, organisation skills and coping strategies
  • What materials they need to participate e.g. assistive technology, furniture, cooking utensils, clothes and computers
  • The social and emotional support available in the home, school, work and community
  • The environment they are having difficulty in e.g. home, school, work or community
