Dementia Occupational Therapy Service

Occupational therapists in the dementia team carry out individual comprehensive assessments of a person’s ability to perform a range of daily living activities. The assessment is completed in the person own home.

The occupational therapy team have a range of skills to help the person with dementia keep up every day tasks and remain independent for as long as possible after they develop dementia. The occupational therapist can give you advice on adapting your environment and compensatory memory strategies to promote your independence.
