Occupational Therapy aims to Maximise a Persons attendance in Life.

The ability to do everyday tasks such as shopping, showeing, brushing your teeth can become difficult for some people with conditions, injuries, or as we age. An OT can help modify these activities to keep you participating in life as normally and easily as possible.

Occupational Therapy

If you have trouble completing any of your daily tasks because of injury, pain, limitations or age, our OT can help find a way around it!

What an OT can help with:

Working with children with developmental delays or behavioural disorders (ADD, ADHD, Autism, Aspergers):
  • Helping children achieve their developmental milestones such as fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
  • Educating and involving parents to facilitate the normal development and learning of their children.
  • Assistance with texture sensitivities and fussy eating.
Rehabilitation:
  • Helping clients return to normal daily function following specific events such as hip replacement or stroke, burns, surgery or traumatic injury. This may include assessment and implementation of assistive devices and home modifications such as splints, stockings, rails, ramps, and crutches to enable a smooth transition from injury to wellness.
Mental Health:
  • Specialist interventions in acute mental health; developing coping strategies for dealing with work, social situations and daily tasks.
  • Assessing clients’ cognition, function and psychosocial needs in cases such as dementia, Alzheimers, PTSD and stress.
Workplace management:
  • Assessing the functional requirements of various jobs, and clients’ capacity to return to work after an injury, and designing return-to-work programs.
  • Modifying the work environment to prevent or minimise injuries.
