Involve Occupational Therapy

​Using a goal orientated approach, Involve Occupational Therapy creates individual, treatment programmes to get you back to independence. Occupational Therapy is a science based profession whose philosophy is based upon the benefits of occupation and activity to maintain health and well-being. Occupations are different to many people; referring to peoples everyday activities which bring meaning and purpose to life...our activities of daily living. It could be something as simple as brushing your teeth, preparing a meal, getting dressed, going out for a walk or getting back to employment. No matter what holds you back from activity, being unable to carry out activities can lead to further ill health and difficulties.

​What we do; Assess clients’ difficulties and strengths in carrying out specific tasks or occupations through observation, discussion and analysis; Create bespoke treatment programmes targeting problem areas; Advise on equipment to aid performance; Recommend adaptations to the environment to make tasks easier and safer; Discuss care options and recommendations for the future.
