Occupational therapy

Occupational therapy helps people maintain their independence and quality of life in the areas most important to them.

By adapting the way an activity is done, and focusing on strengths, occupational therapy enhances independence and wellbeing.

A Hospice Occupational Therapist can visit people at home to support them with the activities which make up their lives, including caring for themselves and participation in meaningful activities. Support is also available for the management of symptoms such as fatigue, shortness of breath and pain, and creative therapy projects.
