Read more about occupational therapy services
The team comprises occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants and administration support. Technicians are available to the service to provide minor adaptations.
The occupational therapist will make a full assessment of the individual’s needs. Depending on the outcome of the assessment, they may provide advice, equipment or make recommendations for changes to the individual’s living environment or recommend re-housing.
The Community Occupational Therapy Team works in a wide range of community settings including individuals’ homes, nursing and residential homes. The team may visit individuals and their carers at home to review their progress.
In addition, we provide occupational therapy services in hospital settings, including inpatient services at Bletchley Community Hospital, day services at Milton Keynes Rehabilitation Unit and acute services at Milton Keynes General Hospital.
