Your Occupational Therapist will be in touch to make a time to come and see you at home at a time that suits you. Allow 60 to 90 minutes for this first session. The focus of this visit is to get to know you and find out what you are able to do and what you may need support with. We may do some assessments of your abilities if this is relevant.

After that we will work out a therapy plan with you. As every person is unique, we make sure your therapy plan reflects your specific situation and goals.
