Occupational Therapy Service Details

The Occupational Therapy (OT) Service provides information and advice to anyone aiming to maintain or increase independence in their daily routine, leisure or work related activities.

The level of involvement varies with each individual; from simple advice to an assessment with the demonstration of equipment, referrals to other services, or a series of rehabilitation sessions.

Advice and support is offered to individuals experiencing difficulties related to age or disability, and to relatives, friends, or other medical professionals, students, voluntary and statutory organisations.

What is Occupational Therapy?

OT helps individuals improve their quality of life by enabling them to be as independent as possible, this is primarily achieved by focusing on everyday activities.

It may involve teaching new ways of managing personal care and home skills such as washing, dressing, cooking and shopping. It can help people to regain their social life and feel at ease in social settings, taking up new hobbies and return to work.

Where is the service based?

Assessments take place at the assessment house in the Independent Living Centre (ILC). We offer assessments to everyone, regardless of reason. Assessments are open to people of any age and ability.
