Occupational Therapy

Tur Occupational Therapy team assess a person’s ability to carry out their usual activities and help them to overcome any difficulties they may have. People may find it harder to do their usual activities due to the aging process, illness, an accident, surgery, or a disability.

When working with adults we focus on your normal roles, the activities you usually do and your home environment to improve and/or maintain your independence, safety and quality of life. Services are provided in hospitals, community health centres and at home. We also have an Equipment Loan Pool to help people with the hire of equipment for short periods up to two months.

Our Paediatric Occupational Therapist sees children from birth to six years old and their family and carers, with a focus on child development, moving skills, thinking skills, and the way the child understands information from different senses. We also prescribe equipment and recommend modifications to the home or school environment for children experiencing difficulties with their movement and mobility.
