Occupational Therapy in Adaptations and Rehabilitation

2765The Adaptation and Rehabilitation Team (ART) for the Western Isles consists of Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Technical Instructors who work across hospital and community settings with all ages of people. The team provides assessment to identify client risks and/or need in relation to everyday activities.

Assessments can be carried out a home, within the community or in the hospital. Following assessment, the therapist will work with people in order to achieve identified goals. This may be through the provision of rehabilitation, advice and information, strategies or the provision of equipment and/or adaptations.2733
