Choice and control
Our Occupational Therapy services are designed to offer you full choice and control over your therapy.
We work in a person-centred way, which means we discuss with you what you would like to achieve. This helps establish the functional goals that are important to you. We build on your strengths and abilities and help you develop the areas in which you would like improvement. We work alongside you to achieve your goals and regularly review progress with you and your family. You choose what you would like assistance with and we determine together the best way to achieve your functional goals.
