We offer a free home visit from our in-house Occupational Therapist (OT) for those customers wanting to adapt their bathrooms or make larger scale home adaptations so their property meets their personal needs.
If you would like a quote for an accessible bathroom or home adaptation, we will offer you a free home visit from our OT. If you agree to this, our OT will visit you at home to gain an understanding of your past medical history and how you are managing in your home. This gives us, as a multi-professional team, an understanding of the difficulties you are facing and enables the OT to work alongside the builder and surveyor to overcome these difficulties in the design of your new bathroom or home adaptation to ensure it suitable for your personal circumstances.
Here’s what our customers have to say about our Occupational Therapy service
What is Occupational Therapy?
As people age, or if they have a disability, they may find they have difficulties doing some of the things they want to do independently or safely. Occupational therapy aims to improve people’s ability to do everyday tasks that are important to them. This could include practical tasks such as getting washed and dressed, accessing the toilet or shower and increasing safety to reduce risk of falls.
What’s different about our Occupational Therapist?
Many of our customers either have current or previous involvement with an Occupational Therapist (OT). They might be based on a hospital discharge team, a community therapy team or a specialist clinic. OT’s in general have a very broad remit. The remit of your OT will dependent on the service they are working in. Our OT gives specialist advice on accessible bathrooms or home adaptations. Your current or previous OT may not have experience in this area. The benefit of seeing our in-house OT is that they are known to and can work alongside our team of builders and surveyors.
