Occupational Therapy Medicine Team St David’s Hospital
The St David’s Hospital Occupational Therapy Team provides a person centred service across three medical wards: Rhydlafar, Lansdowne and Elizabeth wards.
Individuals admitted to the wards are usually over 65 years old and are admitted for inpatient rehabilitation from other hospitals once medically stable.
We work with individuals with a diverse range of medical conditions including chronic conditions, dementias and cognitive impairment as well as those who require end-of-life care. As a rehabilitation service we aim to prevent decline in health and activities of daily living, to increase independence and to re-reintroduce daily routines and roles.
We are able to issue aids and equipment following specialist assessment and are able to refer to community services for ongoing rehabilitation and support following discharge.
Referral: Referrals are made to the team by multi-disciplinary team members when an individual is an inpatient within St David’s Hospital.
