    Staff from our Social Care & Health team are celebrating Occupational Therapy Week by having a ‘Small Changes Big Impact’ event at the What Matters Hub drop-in session in Galashiels on 7 November.

    OT staff will also be at the Hawick What Matters Hub in the Tower Mill from 10am-3pm.

    Occupational Therapy Week

    Run by the Royal College of Occupational Therapists (RCOT), the week is held to promote the value of occupational therapists and the fantastic work they do across the UK.

    What do occupational therapists do?

    Occupational therapists provide practical support to help you do the activities that matter to you, particularly following a period of ill health or if you have a long term health condition. They will consider all of your needs - physical, psychological, social and environmental. Their support can make a real difference giving a renewed sense of purpose, opening up new horizons, and changing the way you feel about the future.

    Come along to find out more

    If you want to find out more about how the team might be able to support you, join us in Galashiels and Hawick on 7 November where you’ll be able to try equipment, ask questions and get advice.

    Carers, family members and friends are also welcome to see what might be available to help the people you care about.
