We now have support from our Occupational Therapy colleagues within the practice. Amanda, Karen and Connor provide practical support to empower people to facilitate recovery and overcome barriers that are preventing them from doing the activities (or occupations) that matter to them.
Occupational therapists play a critical role in helping people of all ages overcome the effects of disability caused by illness, ageing or accident so that they can carry out everyday tasks or occupations at home, in the workplace and within their communities.
An occupational therapist will consider all of the patient’s needs – physical, psychological, social and environmental. This support can make a real difference giving people a renewed sense of purpose, opening up new horizons, and changing the way they feel about the future.
