Occupational therapists help people of all ages to overcome barriers that have made it difficult for them to do some or many things in their everyday lives. Occupational therapists work with people to assist them in being able to do these activities again.
This includes working with people with short or long term illness, injury, disability or something else that has affected a person’s health. Support may include modifying or changing an activity or task, modifying a place of residence or workplace, providing education or teaching a new skill.
Working across our Community Health Centres Occupational therapists can also visit people in their homes, hospitals and nursing homes.
