Activities of daily living, supporting our clients to manage everyday tasks.


Individuals who are considered to have an activity of daily living limitation can find it extremely difficult to complete self-care activities on a daily basis, such as dressing, washing and feeding. This can have a major impact on an individual's self-esteem and emotional well-being and create personal barriers when socialising.

Self-care activities include:

  • Washing
  • Bathing
  • Toileting
  • Putting on clothes
  • Feeding
  • Sleeping

Our occupational therapists can create individualised/tailored treatment programmes to help an individual carry out their daily tasks much more effectively and with more confidence. Treatments for individuals can also include both small and large adaptations to the home environment, dressing, washing, feeding aids and fatigue management techniques.


Productivity refers to making a contribution to society through paid or unpaid work. Difficulties carrying out productive activities can impact immensely on an individual's quality of life. Productive activities include:

  • Volunteering
  • Paid jobs
  • House keeping
  • Preparing meals

Our occupational therapists can complete a wide variety of assessments aiding an individual's return to work. Our occupational therapy can consist of making small or large adaptations to the workplace environment, providing equipment, grading roles and responsibilities and providing organisational techniques. All of which aim to improve an individual's ability to participate independently in a productive task.


Leisure simply refers to the activities an individual enjoys doing. For those with an activity of daily living limitation, leisure activities can become absent in their day-to-day life. This can have a major impact on an individual's overall health and well-being, effecting both their physical and mental state. Leisure activities include:

  • Socialising
  • Games
  • Sports
  • Hobbies

Our occupational therapists can help all individual's access and use mainstream leisure activities. Taking part in leisure activities can prevent an individual from feeling isolated and improve their quality of life overall. Our occupational therapists will discuss what goals an individual would like to achieve and break them down into more manageable tasks, aiding an individual's participation in pleasurable activities.
