Occupational Therapy For Adults
Occupational Therapists take care of the things that really matter.
The aim is always the same: to restore the client, whenever possible, to the lifestyle that they would have enjoyed, had they not suffered a trauma. When that is not possible we aim to help them readjust and maximise their residual abilities.
To achieve that, our work includes:
- Understanding the component parts of an individual’s needs.
- Understanding the unique needs of every individual
- Assessing the current level of function and occupational performance. Lifestyle planning.
- Planning and implementing packages of therapy and care to maximise our clients’ abilities and opportunities.
- Teaching independent living skills including personal care, domestic and financial management.
- Enabling the client to identify and carry out fulfilling leisure activities.
- Working with our clients to develop compensatory strategies for organisational and planning problems.
- Understanding the importance of correct positioning, to maximise function and increase access to ordinary daily experiences.
- Adapting and modifying the environment to increase independence.
- Working with architects and builders to ensure that our client’s particular individual housing needs are met.
- Assessing and identifying specialist equipment needs, arranging for adaptation and customisation as required.
- Giving advice regarding vehicle adaptations.
- Advising on specialist seating and wheelchair seating whether for home, work or recreation.
And we are cost-effective. Our range of skills can actually reduce the number of professionals required for each client.
