Support to help you live an independent and healthy life
If you have a physical disability there is support available to help you live an independent and healthy life. This includes getting support to help you remain in your home for as long as you want or are able to. The Occupational Therapy service provided by Camden Council helps physically disabled or frail people of all ages to be as independent and safe as possible at home and out and about.
An occupational therapist will visit you in your home to evaluate activities you have difficulty with and may suggest different ways of doing the activities, or may recommend and provide access to products, aids or adaptations that can help you at home.
To find out more about support that the Occupational Therapy service can provide, contact Adult Social Care Access and Response Team
