Could I benefit from Occupational Therapy?

If you, or the person you are caring for, is having difficulty carrying out day to day activities, an Occupational Therapist may be able to help.

That often means looking at how an activity, or where it takes place, or how you're supported, can be modified, or adapted to make things easier. Just as importantly, the therapist will discuss how someone feels about their ability to tackle problems.

A member of the Occupational Therapy team may contact you to talk to you about how you manage with everyday activities, and you may also require an assessment. We can then, together, work out options to best support you.

We are in the process of improving our referral pathway, and if you want to update us about your referral, or get in contact the Occupational Therapy duty line on: 01296 387024 or email: [email protected], or use the main ASC referral route.
