WHEN DO I NEED TO SEE AN OT?

WHEN DO I NEED TO SEE AN OT?

This question can be difficult to answer and there is no clear cut way to answer it. However, if you're noticing that you are actively avoiding tasks because they have become too difficult or unsafe then it is always a good idea to be assessed and be informed.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM OT

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM OT

Before an initial consultation you or a support person will be asked to fill in a form so we know a little more about you before meeting. 

 

At the initial consultation, it is beneficial to have a support person present as this is our opportunity to get a clear picture of why you may need OT. The initial consultation is usually where goals are developed as a team.

Depending on your goals, you and your Occupational Therapist will decide if you would like to continue engaging with our service.
