What We Do


Occupational Therapists aim to optimise your functional potential in Activities of Daily Living (ADL), to manage your conditions and develop coping strategies. They will work with you to jointly agree a treatment plan to assist you to return to everyday life as independently as possible.

  • Transfer assessments (ability to get on/off furniture)
  • Personal care assessments (washing and dressing)
  • Kitchen assessments
  • Cognitive assessments (memory, planning, sequencing and orientation)
  • Environmental assessments
  • Home assessments
  • Wheelchair assessments
  • Equipment provision
