- Occupational Therapy
Mobile throughout Swansea
Our Physiotherapists work with patients to improve strength, mobility, balance, coordination, conditioning and endurance and to decrease and manage pain. From those with physical or neurological injuries or disabilities to those recovering from surgery, they will tailor-make a program for each client. It’s about establishing meaningful goals and then working together using evidence-based interventions.
Many of those in our longer-term care also benefit from programs to manage pain and maintain their capacity to achieve higher independence and greater satisfaction from life.
Our OTs focus on working with clients to improve their independence and ability to live safely and confidently as they perform daily tasks.
We assess both internal and external risk factors and recommend clinically appropriate disability support technology to maximise engagement and mobility.
Our home modifications include rails, ramps, stair climbers, platform lifts, and more. We also manage the planning and quoting of modifications. Our Occupational Therapy services are available at all property types, including homes, rentals, residential facilities, disability accommodation and so on.
