Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy is a health profession that works with people to help maintain their safety and independence and to make everyday living easier. 

If you experience difficulty with common activities like showering, dressing, cooking, or accessing and moving about your home, then our Occupational Therapy service may be able to help. 

Council’s qualified Occupational Therapist works with you to build your skills and capacity to do things independently, helps you to find new ways of doing things, and can recommend changes to your home environment. This might include aids, equipment and modifications to ensure your home is safe, accessible and meeting your current needs. Examples include installation of rails, ramps, bathroom and kitchen aids or equipment, chair and bed alterations, and safety modifications. 

To access occupational therapy you must already be receiving, or have recently been referred to, Council’s other home support services. Fees apply for this service.
