Occupational Therapy Week - 5th-11th November 2018
Published: Monday 05 Nov 2018
Occupational Therapy Week is a yearly celebration of the Occupational Therapy profession. It is an opportunity for occupational therapists to be loud and proud!!
St Andrews and Glenrothes Community Hospital Intermediate Care Occupational Therapy staff have been busy preparing their information stands, which you can visit in the reception space.
Occupational Therapists play a critical role in helping people of all ages overcome the effects of disability caused by illness, ageing or accident so that they can carry out everyday tasks or occupations.
Occupational Therapy provides practical support to empower people to facilitate recovery and overcome barriers preventing them from doing the activities (or occupations) that matter to them. This support increases people's independence and satisfaction in all aspects of life.
"Occupation" as a term refers to practical and purposeful activities that allow people to live independently and have a sense of identity.
Our Intermediate Care Teams are committed to providing a service to ensure that people can meet their personal outcomes:
Helping people to live, not exist.
