Do I need a recommendation from an Occupational Therapist to purchase aids or equipment?

Yes, an occupational therapist can assess your needs, abilities, and living environment to recommend appropriate aids and equipment that are tailored to your individual requirements. They will provide instructions on how to use the equipment safely and effectively and help you integrate it into your daily life, which can increase your independence, safety, and quality of life at home. It’s important to note that using the wrong aids or equipment can lead to injury or exacerbate an existing condition.

In some cases, a physiotherapist or registered nurse may also be able to make recommendations for certain equipment, depending on the complexity of the situation.
