Occupational Therapy and Activities

It is very important here at Highfield Private Hospital that we meet all of the individual needs of each of our residents, as this allows us to strive towards a more person centred approach in all aspects of care. This is important also within the recreational settings here at Highfield Private Hospital.

All residents have a number of activities on offer each day and can avail of these activities whenever they wish. These activities are assessed and are suitable for each individual.

The Activities Therapists here at Highfield Private Hospital will always look at the history of a resident’s social background and design an activities program for each resident based on information and previous history given by families and friends.

An information guide with detailed information for each of the activities on offer is given to the residents and families which will explain the benefits that can be gained by the resident’s engagement in these activities.
