What is occupational therapy?
Occupational therapy helps people with physical impairments, medical conditions, learning disabilities and mental health conditions to live more independently. An occupational therapist (OT) can work with you on everyday tasks you may be struggling with, such as getting dressed, making food or getting around, and suggest ways to make the task safer and more manageable, for example, by doing it in a different way or using a piece of equipment. As a key part of West Sussex County Council's Independent Living Service (ILS), OTs can help you make the most of your abilities and reduce your reliance on others.
