We work with people with a variety of physical difficulties, such as people with amputations, wheelchair users, physical diagnoses such as Cerebral Palsy as well as temporary loss of physical function due to illness or operations (such as joint replacement). These physical challenges may affect your ability to perform tasks independently. As Occupational Therapists, independence of our clients is most important and we strive to assist in achieving as much independence for our clients as possible.
In order to achieve independence when living with physical difficulties, assistive or adaptive equipment may be needed. We offer assessment of physical functioning and meaningful occupations in order to prescribe and recommend equipment that may assist with independent functioning and performance of daily tasks. This may include equipment to assist with toileting, self-care, home management, cooking, cleaning, participating in leisure activities or work and more. The process would typically include assessment (either in person or using a telehealth tool), report writing with recommended devices as well as sourcing and implementation of recommended devices. We perform follow-up consultations as well to ensure appropriate and safe use of equipment.
