Occupational Therapy Sydney

Be amazed at what you can achieve with occupational therapy – a program that promotes wellbeing in everyday activities like self-care, work or community participation.

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy aims to help you maximise your functional independence in everyday tasks, such as personal care, getting out of the house and transportation, preparing food, sleep and rest, cognition including memory and planning, fine motor skills, leisure, productivity and returning to work.

Once we have helped you to optimise your function, we can also recommend any equipment, modifications to your environment or cognitive strategies that could make everyday tasks easier and improve your independence.

Who is Occupational Therapy for?

Occupational therapy can help many people from all walks of life. The people who benefit the most from this program are those who wish to improve physical and cognitive development. Occupational therapy can help you if you have Parkinson’s disease or multiple sclerosis. It can also help if you experienced a stroke or you are recovering after surgery, cancer or a fall.
