Occupational Therapy

Our occupational therapy service provides help and support to people that are recovering from a stroke and whose health prevents them undertaking activities in their daily lives. Our occupational therapists have years of experience in identifying difficulties that you may have and can work with you to overcome them and make the fullest possible recovery.

Make An Appointment

To ask a question, make an enquiry or book an appointment, contact our specialist team who are available between Monday – Friday 8am – 6pm and on Saturday from 9.00am to 2.00pm. Our stroke unit team have a dedicated and caring approach and will seek to find you the earliest appointment possible with the correct specialist for your needs.

 If you are self-paying you don’t need a referral from your GP. You can simply refer yourself and book an appointment.

If you have medical insurance (e.g. Bupa, Axa PPP, Aviva), you will need to contact your insurer to get authorisation for any treatment and, in most cases, you will require a referral letter from your GP.

If you do not have a GP, then we have an in-house private GP practice that you can use. Alternatively we can suggest the most appropriate course of action for you to take, given your location and individual circumstance.

Occupational Therapy

Recovering from a stroke requires time, patience and expertise. Here at The Stroke Unit, patients are cared for by a multidisciplinary private Stroke Care Team led by Consultant Neurologists and Physicians. Our team of Occupational Therapists help patients carry out daily activities following a stroke, using goal-related techniques.

Simple tasks such as washing, dressing, and conducting personal hygiene are all activities that are important to patients yet can be difficult to do once the neurological system has been affected. This can be frustrating and daunting; our therapists help in providing alternative methods of achieving these tasks during the patient’s restrictive phase.

They liaise with GPs, families and the local authorities to provide home adaptations and to help patients adjust to returning home after a stroke.

Our Occupational Therapists Can Help With

  • Washing, dressing, preparing food and drink
  • Developing you an individual treatment plan
  • Helping you to be as independent as possible
  • Helping you to improve present abilities
  • Teach you new ways of performing every day tasks
  • Teaching you how to use specially adapted equipment
