The Occupational Therapist sees patients in the hospice or in their own homes. Their aim is to enable the patient to gain the most independence and best possible quality of life.
The Occupational Therapist is able to offer home assessments, advice on lifestyle management, education and support to patients and carers. They are also able to loan equipment.
Together with the Physiotherapist, the Occupational Therapist runs a regular group for patients with problems associated with breathlessness, anxiety and fatigue.
