Rehabilitation

Our Occupational Therapists provide rehabilitation to individuals with a range of health-related conditions, including those with a brain injury, spinal injury and orthopaedic injuries. They use their skills to carry out a thorough assessment of the impact a clients’ impairments are having upon function and the effect this is having upon their level of independence and quality of life. Cognitive, social, emotional and physical needs are considered.

The Occupational Therapist will work with the individual and their support network to devise a rehabilitation programme, identifying clear rehabilitation goals, following a client centred approach. All areas of an individual’s life will be considered and rehabilitation will be carried out alongside any other professionals involved, to ensure a holistic approach is followed. This often involves providing training and education to families and support teams.

Equipment and Adaptations

The main aim of equipment and adaptations is to make changes that will optimise independence and promote safety for the individual within their home environment.

An assessment of individual needs is completed in order to identify the client’s current environment, function and needs in order to formulate individual goals. The occupational therapist will work closely with the client to ensure that their goals and routines are considered enabling the individual to participate as much as possible in the process and identifying the tasks that are important to them.

Once a thorough assessment has been completed the therapist will use their expertise in order to compile recommendations and develop a plan of intervention. Identifying the right equipment can make a real difference to a client’s motivation, involvement with activities of daily living and facilitate rehabilitation programmes.

Moving and Handling

We provide a bespoke moving and handling training service, developed in line with the client and family’s  goals and support worker needs. This includes comprehensive risk assessment of the current environment and equipment used, to ensure that manual handling tasks are completed efficiently and safely.

 

Training is completed in line with current legislations and continuing best practice to ensure we are providing up to date guidance, including manual handling plans, to advise support workers with the use of equipment and the safest way to support with movement and handling tasks.
