What does an assessment cover?

Personal Care

From brushing your teeth, showering and washing your hair, to drying yourself & toileting, personal care involves all the things you would normally do more privately.

Dressing

Putting on and taking off clothing, putting on socks and shoes, doing up buttons, zippers and clasps. These all fall into the realm of dressing in an occupational therapy assessment

Meal Preparation & Eating

From preparing food and cooking meals, to eating, taking care of dishes and safety in the kitchen. Meal prep and eating are a big part of our lives and therefore a big part of an occupational therapy assessment.

Employment

Assessing how you function in your place of employment is also part of an occupational therapy assessment.

Mobilisation

Being able to move around our environment is extremely important to our ability to participate in activities of daily living, which is why this is an important part of our assessment process.

Social Interactions

Being able to socialise is a big part of what makes us human. An occupational therapy assessment will look at your social needs & goals.

Leisure

Leisure activities and hobbies are an important part of a balanced life. We include this in our assessment because of the importance of being able to pursue pleasurable activities.

Emotional & Mental Wellbeing

Living with a chronic condition can have a huge impact on mental health. We briefly assess mental health status, needs and goals as part of our assessment.

Why assessments and little follow up?

Assessments give people the chance to get a big picture overview of where things are at with their condition. Our aim is to look at where things can change to help you improve your quality of life. We will look at functioning in day to day activities (ADLs), make recommendations for therapies, adaptive equipment, splinting and other necessary & helpful changes.

 

The aim here is that you follow these recommendations up with your GP, physiotherapist and other treating team. We are available for limited follow up to clarify any of the recommendations. If you don’t currently see one of the professions we recommend, we will do our best to help you find someone appropriate in your area.

 

A lot of the education that we used to provide in follow up sessions will soon be available via online courses, and occasional face to face workshops. This frees up therapists to see more people for their big picture sessions and get them on their way to living a more satisfying life with their condition.
