An Occupational Therapist’s goal is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. This means helping people to safely look after themselves, live independently and have productive lives.
Occupational therapists look at a variety of health related issues including:
We provide Occupational Therapy services to inpatients and the community across the West Coast DHB.
Inpatient Occupational Therapy services are available at Te Nikau Grey Hospital & Manaakitanga mental health unit.
Referrals are generated from medical, nursing and allied health colleagues who identify a need for support during your admission.
Some patients may also requite ongoing Occupational Therapy after leaving hospital and will be referred onto our Community team.
Community Occupational Therapists work out of Greymouth, Hokitika and Westport. They work closely with other clinicians within the community health teams, including District Nurses and Physiotherapists.
Referrals are generated from medical (including your GP), nursing and allied health colleagues who identify a need for support during an appointment or your admission.
