Moving around the home

Find out how we can help

After an accident, illness or diagnosis, or simply as we get older, previously straightforward home activities can become challenging. Such challenges can lead to reduced independence, well-being and confidence.

We specialise in helping clients achieve a maximum level of independence in their own home, providing practical advice and assistance in the areas important to them.

How OT's help

Whether a client's difficulties in the home are the result of illness or the natural ageing process, some of the most common challenges we help address include:

  • Moving up and down the stairs
  • Getting into or out of bed
  • Using the bath or toilet
  • Preparing and transporting meals and drinks
  • Avoiding falls

The aim of an occupational therapy assessment is to identify the areas of day-to-day life that are causing difficulty. This allows us make recommendations to reduce them and (if desired) arrange for any recommended changes to be made to restore the maximum degree of independence in the home.

Our approach

Our aim is to provide flexible, practical and cost-effective solutions to allow you to freely and safely move around your home. Our assessment may involve looking at:

  • Your current and likely future levels of mobility
  • Your home environment, including bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, stairs and exterior access
  • Equipment that you currently or are likely to need in the future, such as frames, scooters or wheelchairs
  • Your own, your family's or carer's specific wishes and goals

Common recommendations

Some practical solutions that we may recommend to help you move around your home include:

  • Small aids to help in day-to-day activities, such as grab rails or dressing aids
  • Larger pieces of equipment, such as beds, chairs or hoists
  • Mobility or walking aids, including ramps, wheelchairs or frames
  • Stair lifts or through-floor lifts
  • Other adaptations to your home, especially kitchens, bathrooms and extensions

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
  • Dealing with representatives who may need to visit your home
  • Setting up and training you or your carers in the safe use of equipment
  • Reviewing plans with architects and builders to ensure any changes are right for you now and in the future
  • Supporting you in returning home following a hospital stay

  • We can provide ongoing support for as long as you need it
  • Our clear, fixed pricing system will be provided to you in writing for you to consider in your own time
  • We do not add on travel or mileage costs
  • Your occupational therapist will be a specialist in their field, with over 5 years' clinical experience including time in social services or NHS practice

Next steps

Free consultation

During your initial call to us you can discuss your concerns with one of our client managers, whose clinical knowledge will allow them to understand exactly what your difficulties are 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
