Adult Community Occupational Therapy

What We Do

The Community Occupational Therapy Adult Rehabilitation Team (COTART) aim to maintain or increase an individual’s potential to achieve independence in activities of daily living to enable them to remain in their own home. This is achieved with Occupational Therapy interventions, delivered in their home and local community.

The service undertakes assessment and rehabilitation of patients using the Care Aims Model. The aim of intervention is to restore independence in functional activities of daily living, to an optimal level following illness or injury. 

We also work with patients to support them in the management of long-term and life threatening health conditions to support them in avoiding hospital admission. All therapy programmes are based upon patient identified goals. We work with patients, and where appropriate their main carer.

We work closely with other members of the community multidisciplinary team .e.g. physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, dietitians, podiatrists, district nurses and community matrons to ensure a holistic and timely approach to patient care.

We are a city wide service for those over 18 years of age who are residents with a Liverpool  GP.

Referrals are accepted from health or social care professionals, the patient must consent to the referral. We do not accept referrals which request assessment for equipment only.

Services are available Monday to Friday, 8am - 4.30pm but appointments can be arranged outside these hours if necessary.

The Liverpool Adult Occupational Therapy Patient Information Leaflet can be downloaded here.
