Occupational therapy

The aim of Occupational Therapy is to work with patients to establish what matters most in their everyday lives and to maximise function and quality of life.

We work with patients and their families/carers to support them with understanding and managing changes in everyday life. Occupational Therapy promotes:

  • Independence
  • Choice
  • Dignity
  • Quality of life

Occupational Therpaists can help patients with:

  • Managing fatigue, breathlessness, anxiety and other physical symptoms
  • Bathing, dressing and toileting
  • Managing household tasks
  • Increasing feelings of well-being and self-worth
  • Adjusting to change and loss of function

We see individuals at home and when they are admitted for in-patient care. Our services are also available to those who attend Day Care and The Heath Centre.

As with all services provided by The Rowans Hospice, access to Occupational Therapy is completely free of charge.
