Getting out & about – scooters, chairs & cars

When our mobility is reduced due to accident, ill health or advancing age, our ability to access the world outside of our home is often affected.

We regularly assist clients, their families or case managers in minimising such loss of independence, from providing advice on specialist equipment and vehicles to arranging for their delivery and installation, as well as equipping clients to use them effectively.

How OT's help

A great variety of equipment is available to help with reduced mobility - from powered chairs, hoists and scooters to adapted vehicles - but finding the right solution can be a confusing task, and mistakes costly. We advise many clients, families and case managers seeking the product that best meets both current and longer-term needs.

Some of the most common reasons for requests for assistance with outdoor mobility include:

  • Advice on choosing the adapted vehicle or powered chair most suitable for a client's individual cirmumstances
  • Purchasing a lightweight wheelchair to take a parent out at weekends
  • Sourcing, funding and installing mobility equipment or vehicles
  • Ensuring clients have the necessary skills to use the right equipment effectively
  • Coping with unexpected shortness of breath, fatigue or disorientation when outdoors

Our assessment process allows a specialised occupational therapist to identify exactly the mobility problems facing a client. We can then recommend the right equipment and (if desired) arrange for its provision, as well as equipping the client with the skills needed to use it effectively.

Our approach

Our aim is to provide flexible, practical and cost-effective solutions to ensure you are able to access your community. Our assessment may involve looking at:

  • Your current and future levels of mobility, vision and hand function
  • The home environment, including where you will store and charge mobility equipment
  • The suitability of your existing vehicle for transporting a scooter or wheelchair
  • The terrain you need to negotiate, such as gravel, grass or tarmac
  • Your goals and daily routine
  • The physical health of any family or carers that may be supporting you

Common recommendations

Some practical solutions that we may recommend to help you access your community include:

  • Sourcing a suitable mobility aid
  • Arranging a trial of an appropriate wheelchair, vehicle or scooter
  • Advising on adaptations to an existing vehicle
  • Arranging training from a specialist instructor in the use of new or adapted vehicles

We can help with

If required we can also provide assistance with:

  • Sourcing alternative suppliers and quotations - we work with companies nationally to ensure we always offer competitively-priced solutions
  • Arranging and managing any product representatives or who may need to visit your home
  • Advising on any home adaptations to accommodate the equipment, such as car ports, charging points or ramps

Next steps

Initial enquiry

During your initial call to us you can discuss your concerns with a member of our client management team, who will be able to understand what your difficulties are, provide information and advice on our services and identify the right OT from our team.

Quote

If therapist input is recommended, we will send you a detailed quote via email or in writing explaining what, after a full assessment, we would propose and how much it would cost, as well as rates for further work that might be recommended in the future.

Referral

Once you have had time to consider the options and costs, and if you would like to go ahead, the next step would be to fill in our online referral form. In the meantime, if you have further concerns or questions then our client manager will be happy to discuss them with you.

Assessment

Our therapist will then contact you within 24 hours to arrange a visit at your home. Normally this first visit will comprise a full assessment, after which you will receive a comprehensive written report.

Advice

The report will include a clear record of our findings and recommendations. These may include useful items you can buy or activities you can do independently, but they may also include more complex recommendations such as home adaptations or additional treatment by the occupational therapist. Where additional involvement is required, we will follow up the report with a detailed quotation so that you have all the information needed to make an informed decision.

As Private Occupational Therapists our aim is to provide choices and guidance to help you decide what the best options are for you
