British Association of Occupational Therapists (BAOT)
Occupational Therapists (OT) must be registered with the (HCPC) before they can practice either in the NHS or privately. OT’s can help people of all ages when the everyday activities, such as getting out of bed in the morning, getting washed, preparing meals, going to work or school, become difficult.
Stroke, accident, illness and ageing can turn everyday activities into challenges which reduce independence and undermine our sense of identity. Occupational therapists recognise that being able to perform these daily activities is crucial to health and wellbeing and can provide specialist rehabilitation services to re-enable clients to perform difficult tasks more effectively.
