Occupational Therapy

What does it do?

The Occupational Therapy service gives advice:

  • on alternative ways of managing tasks
  • to carers on moving and handling techniques, e.g. to help someone get in or out of bed, then provide written instructions
  • about equipment you can buy
  • and loan of equipment to help
  • on small changes at home such as a grab rail by the toilet or a stair rail
  • on adapting your property, e.g. for a level access shower or stair lift
