Qualifying in 1991, Joy provides expert occupational therapy to clients in their own environment. She specialises in rehabilitation, specifically working with clients with complex neurological and life-changing conditions.

Having worked in hospitals, community settings and private practice, Joy has gained experience assessing and delivering rehabilitation programmes for clients with neurological conditions, such as stroke, traumatic and acquired brain injuries and MS. Joy’s broad experience in neurological rehabilitation has given her a sound understanding of the complexities of these conditions and the functional and emotional impact they have on the client and their families.

To help improve their overall quality of life and independence at home, Joy will also provide seating and wheelchair assessments, hoisting and functional assessments and equipment provision.
