Occupational Therapy - Ennis Primary Care Team 3

Occupational therapy aims to assist members of the community in remaining as independent as possible in carrying out everyday tasks. Following an occupational therapist’s assessment, the focus is on finding practical solutions to difficulties such as: personal and domestic activities of daily living; advice and recommendations on a barrier-free home environment; recommendations and training on usage of adaptive equipment; self-awareness and falls prevention; memory and perception strategies; maximising work and leisure participation. We also offer advice on reducing anxiety and promoting confidence to fully integrate within the local community; support and guidance for family members or referral to other appropriate agencies. Based on our findings we plan individual or group treatment programmes with you or your family/carer to help you remain at home leading an independent, safe and fulfilled life.
