Request an assessment by the Occupational Therapy team

Contact the Community Occupational Therapy Team to carry out an assessment to get a clearer picture of the difficulties that you are having (e.g. bathing, climbing stairs, or transferring from a chair to a bed) and advise you about eligibility, and tell you about other services that may be available.

You will be advised if you need to bring any information to your assessment.

An appointment is made for you between Monday and Friday, 9.00am – 4.00pm.

The assessment is at the Link Centre at 140 Union Street - but home assessments are possible for exceptional circumstances.

Due to the high demand for this service there may be a delay before an assessment can be made.
