Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists work with people of all ages – babies, children, adults and older people – to carry out activities they need or want to do, but as a result of physical or mental illness, disability, ageing or being social excluded, they are prevented from doing the activities they value. Occupational Therapist will work with individuals to find alternative ways to do those activities to empower people live life their way (COT 2015).
