OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

Occupational Therapists (OT) promote skill development and independence in all daily activities.

Occupational therapy provides support to people whose health or disability makes it hard for them to do the things they would like to do. An occupational therapist can identify your strengths and difficulties, help with solutions, and help you to take part in everyday life.

At The Health Hub, our Occupational Therapists aim to help you maintain, regain or improve your independence by using different techniques, changing your environment and using new equipment. Our OTs work with people of any age, including children, adolescents, adults and older people.
