Occupational therapists work with clients who may have temporary or permanent disruption to their lives caused through illness or disability. Therapists work with clients, families and carers in a variety of settings such as the hospital and home. The primary goal of Occupational Therapy is to enable people to participate in activities of everyday life.
This is achieved by:
Home assessment to enhance safety
Providing safer and easier ways of managing a task.
Providing interventions including home modifications and prescription of equipment.
Education on symptom management eg. Pressure care, cancer related fatigue
