Ability can help
OT can also improve the skill-base of staff by educating on a wide range of topics including manual handling. This can help to improve management of patients and be part of your staff's Continued Professional Developments (CPD).
We work together
Intervention is person centred, flexible and evidence based wherever possible. Close collaboration with other professionals and all stake holders is a matter of course. Outcome measures are agreed and records provided in useful, bespoke formats as required.
Facilitation of increased ability, independence and development for individuals and functional assessment (including care needs if required). Training and guidance can also be provided for carers to facilitate increasingly independent activity for a person.
Treatment also includes techniques and specification of equipment, to enable people achieving their everyday goals and optimize functional ability, maintenance of conditions as well as increased safety for the person and other people (including carers).
Assessment of need, specification and clear, costed recommendations can enable direct consideration (depending on local policies) of funding and statutory provision may be achieved where the needs are eligible.
Moving and assisting with people (Manual Handling) is another specialty often used with individuals as well as taught to groups. Assessment of risk, specification of reasonably practicably safe methods of care and facilities required (statutory and informal carers) are other such services provided.
