Occupational Therapy Program

The SQRH Occupational Therapy (OT) program involves an occupational therapist coming to your house to undertake an assessment of your needs and to provide you and your doctor with advice to help you stay safe and independent in your own home.

Home visits are conducted by university students supervised by fully qualified, skilled, occupational therapists. The purpose of the program is to make life more manageable for participants and to provide useful health information for your doctor.
