Enhance your quality of life with Occupational Therapy
occupational therapy services
Our Occupational Therapists support adults whose disabilities, medical conditions or ageing have stopped them from doing the activities that matter to them. They will identify why you’re having difficulties with daily tasks, such as washing and dressing, toileting, getting out of bed and preparing meals. All the things that give you independence.
The Occupational Therapist will help you to regain your ability to carry out these important tasks independently. They’ll do it by changing your environment, practising using new equipment and helping you work out practical solutions using different techniques.
The benefits of our Occupational Therapy Service are:

How Occupational Therapy Works
Here are just a few examples of situations people face. They show how our Occupational Therapists can help clients remain independent.
Live As Independently As Possible
We enhance the quality of our clients’ lives by enabling them to carry out daily activities at home. As well as suggesting alternative ways of doing everyday tasks and equipment that could help, our Occupational Therapists can advise on adapting the home to make tasks easier. These changes are often small and we always involve our clients throughout.
The sooner you talk to us, the easier it is to support you or your loved one at home, in a hospital setting or elsewhere. Early intervention can help plan your recovery and make your life easier by providing the right equipment and coping strategies.

MS & Other Long Term Conditions
Care Agencies & Private Hospitals
As well as coming to people’s homes , our specialist Occupational Therapists work with care agencies to train carers in looking after patients better. As a result, clients are less dependent on them. This can improve quality of life of our patients and care staff by right sizing care with right equipment..
For example, an older person is discharged from hospital after fracturing her hip and a live-in carer comes to care for her. We work with the client and train the carer over several weeks. After two months, the carer only needs to come in once a week, which saves on their cost. Meanwhile, the agency gains an employee with additional skills.
The key is to get Occupational Therapy involved quickly. It’s better for the client. It ensures they are seen at the right time, in the right place and with the right intervention. They may not need to move into an expensive care home but can stay in their own home where they feel better and secure. Alternatively, you may want to go to a care home for respite and we can send our therapist to you to speed up your recovery.
When kindness and professionalism were needed after a hip operation, Therapies on Thames provided exemplary care. Home visits included. A plus point after only one week of recovery.
Therapies on Thames helped [my 94-year-old disabled mother] to reach and grasp and maintain some strength in her legs. You have a gift to inspire and encourage your clients. Your visits are always eagerly awaited.
On behalf of my father, we’d like to say a huge thank you for the expert advice and care you offered while he was in the hospital. We had almost given up that dad could remain at home due to the difficulties he was experiencing with Parkinson’s but you have given us confidence and advice we didn’t have before.
After your Physio treatment I felt so much better, not only with less pain but also feeling much more optimistic with the outcome with my ankle
Absolutely amazing help at a very stressful time, can’t thank you enough for all your help, guidance, recommendations and support to me, my brother and mum. Couldn’t have got through all these arrangements on our own. Truly exceptional company and values.
