Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust has supported Occupational Therapy Week 2017 (#OTWeek2017) with a host of activity across the city.
The week has been running from Monday 6 November to Sunday 12 November and has sought to promote Occupational Therapy to the public.
On Wednesday, staff ran a popular interactive stall about the services Occupational Therapists can offer at Kirkgate Market in Leeds. Leeds Community Healthcare staff have also been encouraged to tell us what being an Occupational Therapist means to them with selfie boards posted on social media.
Meanwhile Occupational Therapists from across the city came together at a PAN Leeds 'Inspiring Change' event on Thursday morning.
Occupational Therapists provide care to patients in their own homes, residential homes or in designated community bed bases. They work in partnership with them to identify personal treatment goals and help them begin to complete the daily activities or ‘occupations’ that matter to them.
Every week you will complete hundreds of activities without batting an eye, but for many patients gaining the skills, strength or education to feed themselves again, get dressed, or take a bath, is an important step to enable them to participate in daily life.
