Our Occupational Therapy team is available to assess the needs of people living in Wolverhampton. An assessment can be completed at our clinic based at the Neville Garratt Centre for Independent Living or, if a person is unable to travel to access the service, a member of the team can visit at home. Where possible, the team can provide aids to assist around the home or arrange for work to adapt your property.
Please note, assessment may not happen immediately due to the demands of the service. Assessment may be in our clinic at the Neville Garratt Centre for Independent Living, or if a person is unable to attend due to mobility difficulties, at their own property.
The team will assess the following areas during the assessment process:
- Access to the property (including front and back doors and any steps)

- Transfers – Safe chair use; Safe use of toilets; Safe access into and out of a bath; Safe access into and out of a bed
