Thursday 18th October 2018 come and meet the Occupational Therapists…

So what do Occupational Therapist do?

Occupational Therapists help people to live life their way. When physical or mental illness, or the effects of ageing stop you doing some activities – whether it’s getting washed or going back to work, or doing the fun things such as socialising – this affects your health and wellbeing. We can work with you to find different ways of carrying out activities to help you live life your way and we will be bringing some of our small equipment to your surgery in the morning to show you how. Drop in and say hello and find out about our service.
