Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy is a client-centred health profession that promotes health and wellbeing through daily occupations. We aim to enable people to participate in all activities of everyday life that we want, like and need to do. We can help modify an activity or the environment so you are able to continue doing the activity to your best ability.
