About the job
“Occupational therapists help people to improve their quality of life, which is really rewarding. It’s a great feeling knowing that you’re making a difference to someone every day.”
As an occupational therapist you’ll work with people who have difficulties carrying out activities because of disability, illness, trauma, ageing, or a range of long-term conditions. The role may include supporting people with a mental illness or learning disability with everyday activities, helping someone adapt to life after major surgery or helping older people stay in their homes by providing adaptations such as stair lifts.
