Occupational Therapy

  

Do you think your living skills are compromised because of your physical health condition? 

Did you know there are several adaptive and assistive technologies to improve your participation in the community and within the house which could be recommended by your occupational therapist?

Do you have a mental health condition which is restricting your participation into day to day activities?

Are you having difficulty to access community because of your mobility related issues? 

Do you feel unsafe (such as fear of fall, trip, difficulty to shower and toilet) at your own home because of physical environment and having difficulties to find out what could be done to improve your safety within your home environment?


Are you having difficulty to learn new ways of doing things; for example, dress or cook with one arm after a stroke/ amputation?

Are you applying for Department of Housing for accommodation and has been asked to provide an occupational therapy assessment and report of your living skills and/or the type of dwelling (architecture) to suit your physical health condition?
