Supporting an individual to retain their independence is central to the role of the Occupational Therapist. However, life is about more than the daily tasks we all have to do; it is about enjoying what we do and the people we are with. Changing the way an individual achieves a task can preserve vital energies for the more important things in life not only for the individual but also the caregiver.
This starts with a thorough and holistic assessment of an individual within their home. Occupational Therapists may advise and make simple recommendations like:
- raised toilet seats
Or they will assist in major equipment and adaptations such as:
- stair lifts
- bath lifts
- wet-room shower areas
They can tailor their input by:
- providing initial advice and recommendations
- managing a specification
- supporting the prescription, procurement, delivery, installation and use of equipment
At SP Therapy Services our Occupational Therapists can work with Architects, Quantity Surveyors and builders to tailor the specification for wet-rooms, ramps, door widening and ground-floor extensions to the needs of the individual.
Our Occupational Therapists not only assess and support an individual in their home but also promote the opportunity to engage in your environment through support with accessible gardens and Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles.
We can provide home visits & clinic appointments.
SP Therapy Services take great care in providing an exceptional standard of therapy to all our patients, whatever their individual age, diagnosis or location.
