Our Occupational Therapists evaluate each client’s unique needs and suggest the most appropriate tools, devices, or aids to improve their mobility, communication, and other activities of daily living.
Occupational therapists play a crucial role in enhancing the quality of life of older adults by assisting them in selecting and utilising specialised equipment such as wheelchairs, mobility scooters, and walking aids to aid in their movement around their homes and other environments.
Moreover, they can suggest modifications to their client’s homes to meet their needs, such as installing rails or ramps to promote safe mobility. By empowering their clients to perform daily tasks using these aids, occupational therapists enhance their confidence and overall well-being.
Physiotherapy is a type of rehabilitation that concentrates on treating injuries and improving a client’s physical mobility. It aims to enhance physical measures such as joint range of motion, muscle strength, and endurance.
On the other hand, occupational therapy focuses on helping individuals perform daily activities independently, particularly during or after a period of physical impairment. It emphasises therapeutic techniques and the prescription of equipment and modifications to enhance their ability to complete daily tasks and increase their overall quality of life.
Occupational therapy is a valuable option for individuals who face challenges with self-care, mobility, or everyday tasks in their home or work environment due to various factors such as illness, injury, pain, or disability.
For seniors or people with disabilities, these challenges may involve routine activities such as dressing, cooking, and driving.
With growing care needs and social isolation, our community is in greater need of high quality healthcare now more than ever.
Our therapists have continued to be welcomed by community members into their homes to deliver high-quality assessments and therapy, throughout the pandemic.
