Occupational therapy services
What is occupational therapy?
Occupational therapists work with people of all ages and abilities to do the things they need and want to in all aspects of life, such as taking care of themselves and others, working, volunteering, and participating in hobbies, interests and social events (‘occupations’).
Occupational therapists are experts in the relationships between what people do and their health and well-being, and work with people to help make every day living easier through developing skills, finding new ways to do things and changing the environment to suit a person’s needs.
