An occupational therapist can also help you to stay active and safe by:
- checking how you manage your daily activities
- arranging for you to get equipment – such as rails or walking aids – to make your life easier
- helping you find better ways to carry out everyday tasks around the home
If you would like further advice, or are having difficulties with everyday tasks, you can ask to be referred to an occupational therapist by contacting your local social work department, or health centre.
If you have Parkinson's disease and are at risk of falling, Parkinson's UK have information on occupational therapy and Parkinson’s explaining how occupational therapy can help.
