I have 6 years experience working in Disabled Children’s Service at Social services. Specialising in Housing and adaptations I have excellent knowledge of the specialist equipment available including how to adapt environments safely for a disabled person. I regular attend exhibitions and update on available products.
Since leaving social services, I have become an Independent Occupational Therapist working with both adults and children. In addition to Disabled Facilities Grants, I also provide a service to individuals who may have been awarded compensation in order to adapt their home environment in accordance to their assessed needs. Therefore, working with solicitors and architects and case managers.
Furthermore, I have experience of working with individuals in a rehabilitation setting. The individuals within this setting need rehabilitation for a short period following either a trauma which may have resulted in surgery or following a stroke. Therefore, assessing both cognitive and physical function. Rehab was provided through daily activities such as self care, preparing meals and accessing the community. Managing safe discharge plans and continuing rehabilitation in their home environment.
I attend yearly updates to maintain my Moving and Handling – Train the trainer and I am a member of the National Back Exchange.
