If your loved one is starting to need more help at home but you aren't sure where to start with helping them, or that the waiting list is too long with your local authority, then a bespoke consultation over video call can help. Your Occupational Therapist will work with you both to assess the home environment and produce a report offering advice and guidance to help make day-to-day life easier. This report can be used in the wider system and form part of their ongoing healthcare plan. Getting help and advice now from an Occupational Therapist could help to prevent more serious difficulties in the future and keep your loved one in their own home for longer.
A Home Living Consultation will cost £195, excluding VAT. If you are eligible for VAT relief this can be applied in the checkout.
