The Hospice’s Occupational Therapy team can help people with coping strategies and techniques, modifications to people’s homes, or provision of equipment.
Occupational Therapists help people to maximise their quality of life and retain their independence at home as their illness progresses. They assess people’s needs and help people to deal with daily living tasks that may become more difficult over time such as washing, dressing, and coping with illness and fatigue.Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants can help either at the Hospice or in people’s own homes or care homes.
They help with:
- Mobility assessment and support
- Positive Living Group
- Assessing function and giving advice on how to adapt/cope better
- Provision of equipment/aids as necessary
