Occupational Therapy - home adaptations

How we can help

As Occupational Therapists we will help you in supporting your child/young person’s day to day care needs within your home.

We will work together alongside our housing partners so that you and your child can access your home and that your home is a safe place to be.

Your child may already be known to the  Occupational Therapy service.  If not, a new referral can be made via Cambridgeshire County Council Contact Centre ( cross reference see contacts list)

Here is a leaflet explaining how we work together...

We understand some of the language used in this leaflet is rather complex and can be confusing. This is simply because this is the terminology used with legislation when discussing housing. We have worked with a selection of families to create a further FAQ to make it easier to understand...

This also applies to young people up to the age of 25yrs. The Occupational Therapist who makes the housing needs assessment can refer to this service if you are eligible.
