Basket Weaving


Back in the 1960s, basket weaving was one of the therapy programmes conducted by the Occupational Therapists (OTs) to improve patient's functional abilities, especially for TB patients. Rosalind Tan, a former TTSH OT recalled pushing her trolley to wards and teaching patients how to crochet, weave baskets and make soft toys. Today, the hospital's OT provides more support to patients with diverse needs to maximise their function and quality of life. They also play an active role in research and development activities to provide evidence-based practices.
