COVID 19 Information

With the fast evolving Covid 19 situation we aim to continue where needed to offer our Occupational Therapy services, whilst taking care of our clients, colleagues, partners, and suppliers. We are following closely the latest advice from the UK Government, NHS England, Public Health England, and relevant statutory bodies.

Additional screening questions are taking place prior to home visits, along with stringent measures for hygiene and tracking of staff health and we have Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to use as and where required. 

Home visits for Occupational Therapy Assessments

In some instances a home visit is essential, for example:

  • To assist with a hospital discharge
  • To prevent hospital admission
  • To look at moving and handling issues that put a client and / or carers at risk

In such instances we can discuss with you the best way forward to meet your timescales, and reduce risk.

Online Occupational Therapy Assessments

In some instances and in light of recent developments, it may be advisable to consider an assessment using such technology applications such as Skype, Facetime, Zoom, etc. Our Occupational Therapy team can complete the assessment with a client remotely, often with the assistance of a member of the family or carer.

This approach is not always suitable for every situation, so we recommend a quick discussion in order to look at the best approach to meet your needs.
