Occupational Therapists (OTs) work with people who have difficulty carrying out their daily activities for a range of different reasons. OTs work together with the person, their family/whānau and anyone else the person wishes to be involved. OTs help people maintain their existing abilities and to be as independent and safe as possible.
Services are provided in the hospital or home environment. Clients are referred by a health professional.
Community Rehabilitation Service (CRS) operates both within this team and the physiotherapy team. You may be visited in your home to develop a rehabilitation programme with achievable goals. The team can also refer you on to other services such as social work, dietetics, and speech-language therapy as needed. A referral from a health professional is required.
