Community Occupational Therapy Service

The Community Occupational Therapy Service supports individuals assisting them to live as safely and independently as possible within their own home environment or within a Residential or Nursing home.

Following an assessment, intervention may include providing advice, equipment or recommendations for adaptations to the home environment.

The service operates an open referral system and accepts referrals from service users, carers, GP’s, other health care staff and agencies such as the Northern Ireland Housing Executive etc.
