Working with Adults

Illness, disability, or ageing can present challenges that make achieving everyday tasks more difficult. These activities can include any aspect of daily living from getting up in the morning to preparing a meal or simply continuing with a favourite hobby.
Occupational therapists may suggest techniques, strategies or aids and equipment to help improve or maintain health, well-being, and independence.

Self-care
  • getting up in the morning
  • preparing a meal
  • using the bathroom
Being Productive
  • going to work

what to expect

How Does it Work?

01.

Information gathering

When you make an enquiry, we will ask for the information we need from you either by having a chat on the phone or by email.

02.

Clear communication

We will clarify the cost for the initial assessment visit.

03.

Pairing you with the best OT

We will then appoint the OT best qualified to help you and arrange a time for the assessment.

04.

We won't keep you waiting

We will aim to offer you an appointment within a couple of weeks of your first contact with us.

05.

Assessment begins

The OT will come to your home and meet with you to find out what difficulties you are experiencing. Often the OT will use an assessment specifically designed for the type of difficulties that you have told us about.

06.

Report and recommendations

After the home visit assessment appointment, the OT will write a report which will then be sent to you. There will be recommendations in the report which may include follow up sessions with the OT.

07.

A network of support

We can liaise with other health care professionals who are involved with your care.

Multi-Sensory Reminiscence Activities

If you or a loved one have recently had a diagnosis of dementia you may have been offered to attend a Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) course.
Our Multi-sensory reminiscence activities are based on the CST course. The sessions have been designed and written by us and draw on our experience of working with older adults. Each session is designed to help to support memory, sensory function, confidence, communication, connection, as well as overall wellbeing. Activities include conversation, food tasting, music, poetry, and cognitive activities.

We work with you to compile your memories, photographs and memorabilia to create your ‘Life Story’. This can then be used to help you enjoy and benefit from meaningful conversation and reminiscences with family members and friends/ carers.

As a Case Manager, I need to work alongside private therapists that are flexible, motivated, and knowledgeable. I also need the system around that therapist to be organised and methodical. I’m happy to report that working with Kent Occupational Therapy has provided all of this! I find that the occupational therapist is flexible to our client’s needs, and takes into account the child’s family and their individual life circumstances. She has been able to recommend and introduce appropriate equipment, which has made a positive difference to our client and allowed him to be more fully included in family life. She has started therapy intervention at a pace that is acceptable to the client. She is fully client-focused and proactive. I receive written monthly updates which keep me up to date with work completed and the next set of plans.
