Older People

At Potential OT we know that life doesn’t stop after retirement; being occupied no matter how old you are is important.

How we help older people

We have extensive experience of supporting older people to remain independent in their own homes. Our occupational therapists can provide treatment sessions to improve an individuals ability to manage day to day tasks, continue with their hobbies or learn new skills. If you are concerned about falling we have specialist knowledge to reduce the risk and make the environment safer. We also advise older people about daily living aids and equipment such as mobility scooters and rise recliner chairs to ensure they are suitable for their needs.
