Occupational Therapy Home Visit
What Happens in a Occupational Therapy Home Visit?
Arrival of Occupational Therapist
Our Occupational Therapist will carry out an assessment in your place of proposed residence initially taking into account any recent illness or injury. Our therapist will be wearing full PPE for your maximum safety.
They will ensure that your living space was as safe as possible while enabling you to remain as independent as possible.
In addition, our therapist will assess you and any current specialised equipment (e.g. chairs, splints) to ascertain if they are suitable to sustain or improve your level of independence.
Report & Recommendations
A detailed report will then be provided sometimes recommending alterations to your living space (e.g. grab rails, ramps etc.) or a recommendation for specialised equipment or furniture. A follow up trial of equipment will often be arranged.
Please note that if applying for HSE grants this will involve additional administration costs which will be outlined to you at the start of the process.
Our therapist may discuss with you the possibility of providing ‘live’ virtual treatments if you have the appropriate IT set up to facilitate this mode of treatment.
Once we establish exactly what level of service you require a member of our team will supply you with an accurate cost for the completion of all aspects of the service.
