Functional rehabilitation

Occupational therapists work with clients with a range of difficulties caused by a variety of conditions or incidents. Whether it be following a heart attack, surgery, orthopedic trauma or just the challenges of older age, our occupational therapy team will work with individuals to provide rehabilitation programmes, activities or techniques to help restore their previous level of function or adapt to their new one.

Find out how we can help

What is functional rehabilitation?

We refer to functional rehabilitation as the process of working towards returning to an individuals maximum level of independence in the activities that are important to them. A person’s priority of their functional activities are as varied as the individual to whom they apply. For example some people will wish to focus on restoring their ability to live in their home independently with activities such as bathing and preparing meals. Whereas others will be looking to restore function in getting back to the gym, college or community activities.

Through a collaborative assessment process our OT and the client will identify the areas of functional difficulty in day to day life to focus a rehabilitation programme on. This can be focusing on one activity for a short period of time such as bathing or it may be a more comprehensive programme to ensure that maximum levels of independence are reached across all areas of day to day life.

Our approach

We aim to provide relevant, timely, goal orientated rehabilitation programmes to clients in their own homes and communities. Our collaborative approach with the client at the centre involves working with other professionals (case managers, therapists) family members and carers to ensure rehabilitation is focused on making a practical improvements. Our aim is to help clients and their families to become as independent as possible, as soon as possible, through result driven occupational therapy delivered by expert therapists.

Why use The OT Practice to provide functional rehabilitation?

  • We believe that our role is to equip clients with the skills needed to become as independent as possible in their every day life, ultimately independent of and not dependent upon, the help we provide.
  • We provide expert advice from the moment you first call us. Our functional rehabilitation enquiries are answered by a member of our client management team who will be able to provide relevant information about our service, answer any questions you may have and provide guidance on next steps.
  • Using us allows rapid access to expert occupational therapy rehabilitation services avoiding long NHS or Social Service waiting lists.
  • We have a nationwide team of rehabilitation OTs and will select the best therapist based on location and clinical need.
  • Our packages of care are provided into client’s own homes meaning that advice is realistic based on the environment and resources available.
  • We provide an all inclusive cost to ensure that our services are fully transparent from the start.

Packages of care

Assessment & advice

An initial assessment is carried out in a client’s own home to establish difficulties and create a treatment plan that works for their needs, lifestyle and budgets. We adopt a consultative approach to gather information and provide any immediate verbal advice where we can. The assessment is then followed up with a detailed report including specific recommendations.

Treatment

Bespoke treatment packages are delivered through one to one sessions working towards functional goals that are realistic and achievable. Treatment is tailored around the functional challenges that are identified during the assessment.

Examples of rehabilitation treatment programmes may be weekly sessions to boost confidence at home after a hospital discharge or several times per week with the aim of regaining mobility in the community. Sessions are delivered for as long as needed in blocks of 8 to allow us to review progress and goals as we go.

Home programmes

Not all clients will need one to one treatment sessions.

A home programme that is designed by us but carried out either independently or with family support can provide rehabilitation techniques and strategies to be implemented into every day life. A home activity programme has the advantage it can be completed when energy levels and time allows.

Fatigue management

Fatigue is a common difficulty associated with the recovery and adjustment phase of accident, illness or injury.

We specialise in bespoke fatigue management programmes with guidance and support to enable the management of fatigue in daily life. The package is often 8 weeks of one to one sessions where we provide strategies and techniques to minimise the impact of fatigue on rehabilitation.

Falls prevention

Falling over is a major cause of disability in the UK, with around half of falls resulting in significant injury leading to reduced confidence, social isolation and increased fragility.

However, many falls are easily preventable with a few adjustments around the home, along with physical activity to increase strength and balance.

The OT Practice offers an eight-week Falls Prevention Programme, all conducted within the home, to reduce the risk of falling while increasing mobility and confidence, including:

  • A full initial assessment of physical aptitude, domestic environment and mobility in and out-of-doors.
  • Recommendations for home adaptations to reduce the risk of falls (installation can be arranged if desired).
  • An individualised, illustrated exercise programme to help increase strength, balance and flexibility.
  • Guidance and practical demonstrations to help you cope in the event that a fall does occur.
  • Advice to family and carers.
  • Thorough and detailed reports will be provided after each assessment.

Training

Training to family, carers or support workers can compliment our other treatment packages or sit alone as a solution to an individuals rehabilitation needs.

Rehabilitation training packages are tailored to the needs and audience of each case and delivered in the environment that they will be working in.

International services

A select team of our rehabilitation experts travel overseas to provide one to one specialist assessment and treatment where needed.

Whether for an intensive block of rehabilitation or to set up a programme with carers, our carefully selected international occupational therapy team provide a discrete service with the highest levels of clinical care.
