About occupational therapy

Illness, injury or ageing can have a significant impact on your physical abilities and psychological well being.

Our occupational therapists can help you to develop, maintain or regain the ability to do the things you need and want to do.

At HCA UK we provide support for adults with a range of conditions. Support for children is available at The Portland Hospital.

Need to know

Treatment will depend on whether you have a long-term condition or disability, or if you're recovering from an injury or surgery. Following a comprehensive assessment of your abilities, lifestyle and goals, your therapist will create a personalised treatment plan to help you develop and maintain independence and do the things you want to do.

Our therapists are skilled at finding ways to help make everyday tasks easier. They can also help you to achieve those goals, hobbies or activities you thought might not be possible.

Your therapist may also suggest specialised equipment or adaptations to your home or workplace that can help.
There's no special preparation needed for your assessment. Your occupational therapist will talk to you about your needs and identify any tasks or activities that are challenging because of your health.

They'll help you to find ways of overcoming barriers to your normal routine or goals, so you can better manage your condition and get the most out of life.
Your occupational therapist will let you know if any follow-up treatment or assessments are needed. If you've agreed an ongoing treatment plan, they'll work with you to arrange a convenient time for your follow-up appointments.

They may also refer you to community teams to support your ongoing therapy and care.
