Community Occupational Therapy

The Occupational Therapy Team look at equipment and adaptations for people who may be struggling with their independence in their own home.

Our team is made up of an Occupational Therapist Lead, Occupational Therapists, Occupational Therapy Assistants and Occupational Therapy Technicians.

We work on the premise that we will look to see what needs can be met by equipment in the first instance to promote a person's independence.

We will only provide equipment if we know the client is safe to use it, so we often deliver this ourselves so that we can see this and consider any risks.

Once we have exhausted the equipment possibilities, we will then consider any adaptations. The Disabled Facilities Grant is means tested, but this falls under the Housing Grants Act not the Care Act so different criteria is applied.
