Occupational Therapy (OT) Services

Registered Occupational Therapist’s who specialise in the accessibility and design of homes in Newcastle

If you require an occupational therapy assessment in Newcastle, our registered occupational therapists (OT’s) will assess your ability to participate in everyday activities.

An Occupational Therapist is a qualified practitioner who aims to enable people to participate in their daily activities, thereby promoting independence, safety and quality of life.

Are you experiencing difficulty coming, going or moving around your home? Do you have concerns with accessing your your bathroom or kitchen?

Do you wish showering, getting dressed, preparing a meal or enjoying family time were easier? Would you like to feel safer and more independent in your day-to-day activities?
