At Greenwood Independent Living Centre, you can book a visit to have a free, impartial assessment with an occupational therapist, in a quiet, confidential setting.

An occupational therapist can offer information and practical solutions to adults of all ages and disabilities, their carers and families, who are experiencing difficulty with maintaining independence in their daily activities and routines.

The centre does not sell anything so there will be no sales pitch, however advice on where to purchase equipment can be provided.  

The service at Greenwood has been commissioned by Dorset Council, since 2015, and is provided by Millbrook Healthcare.
