What Can An Occupational Therapist Do For Me?
An occupational therapist (OT) can help people who are finding it difficult to carry out activities in their daily lives. This could be for a number of reasons, including illness, post-operative recovery, disability or mobility problems. An occupational therapist will assess an individual’s needs, giving them the right help for their situation. They may suggest solutions such as mobility aids or adaptations to the working or living environment. OTs can also design and create supports for joints and soft tissue for people recovering from an operation or going through rehabilitation.

How Does Occupational Therapy Work?
Firstly, your OT will carry out an occupational therapy assessment. They will try to find out more about the tasks or activities an individual is struggling with – like moving around the home, eating or carrying out tasks at work. They will look at what they can or cannot do both mentally or physically. Next, they will design solutions to help with these activities, promoting independence and improving confidence. This could include developing and running home or work functional rehabilitation programmes, or simply providing equipment to help with mobility.
