Description

If you are an adult with a physical disability, a Community Occupational Therapist can assess your situation at home and help you to overcome any difficulties you may be having with day-to-day life. These might include getting in and out of the house, getting up and down stairs, using the bathroom or getting in and out of the bath.

We have specialist knowledge of equipment and alternative ways of doing daily tasks and ways to adapt your home. If we recommend specialised equipment, we can arrange for you to try this out at home. This is provided on loan, free of charge, from the local Community Equipment Service. If we recommend that your home needs adapting in some way, we will make a referral on your behalf to the Accessible Homes Agency (part of Calderdale Council).

You can contact Gateway to Care to ask to have your care needs assessed and to be referred to the Community Occupational Therapy Assessment Service. Assessments are carried out in your own home.

All the Community Occupational Therapists are registered and regulated by the Health Professions Council. The service is managed by Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust.
