Cambridgeshire occupational therapy services 

We cover the whole of the Cambridgeshire area and are widely acknowledged as the UK's leading specialist neurological occupational therapy service provider

   Our lives are overcrowded, over excited and over strained. We all want quiet. We all want beauty…We all need space. Unless we have it, we cannot reach that sense of quiet in which whispers of better things come to us gently.   

- Octavia Hill.

 

Octavia Hill was an influential social reformer who was born in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire. She worked passionately in the second half of the nineteenth century to improve the welfare of inhabitants of cities, especially London. She believed that the environment could have a positive or negative impact on an individual, ultimately impacting on their wellbeing, self-management and potential. We know this viewpoint is especially true following life changing illness and injury.

A little-known fact about Octavia is that her theories were adopted in the early evolutions of the occupational therapy profession. Like Octavia, our specialist occupational therapists recognise the importance of the environment. We understand that accessing specialist knowledge and expertise is essential and believe it is our responsibility to help you, and your family, find a sense of quiet in the chaos, so that you to, can listen for the ‘whispers of better things to come’.

The History of OT

The History of OT

Occupational therapy – the history of the profession Occupational Therapy is a little-known profession; many Occupational Therapists (OT) will spend their whole career introducing themselves to non-medical people as an OT and will, more often than not, receive a blank response.
Neuro OT in Context

Neuro OT in Context

OTs use activities to improve health and wellbeing, they work with all age groups and understand the concept of human occupation and behaviour, they understand activities, human function and the impact of the environment on individual abilities. Let’s put this theory into some context.
Neuro OT in Practice

Neuro OT in Practice

Effective rehabilitation and, specifically, Neuro OT are only beneficial if time has been taken to understand the person before commencing rehabilitation. Understanding an individual’s values, motivators and aspirations are an essential foundation to effective outcomes.
