Stroke Recovery, Speech Therapy and Elderly Care
What is an Occupational Therapist anyway?
The title ‘Occupational Therapist’ can sometimes cause confusion around what the role actually involves. Simply, an OC can help improve your ability to carry out every day tasks. Click here to read more about how an Occupational Therapist from Therapies on Thames can help patients relocate from hospital to home smoothly, without the need for care homes, carers or relying too heavily on family members.
Therapies on Thames Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists can travel to any location in Oxfordshire, Berkshire and the surrounding areas. Elderly care is a speciality of ours, as is stroke recovery and rehabilitation following a traumatic fall. Our patients sometimes experience a loss in confidence once they’re returned home, which can restrict their natural progression back to living a normal and happy life. With guidance from our highly qualified practitioners, we can help you carry out the basic tasks you thought you may never be able to achieve. Each step you take in returning to normality increases confidence, which in turn builds strength and empowers you on your path to recovery.
Family are key for successful rehabilitation
Because we know how important family is in regard to our patients making a full recovery, we also work closely with them to further enhance your chances of regaining complete independence. We will craft you a personalised treatment plan that will assist you in getting back on track and minimising the need for costly home-help and round the clock carers. Most importantly, our services keep the elderly at home longer without the need for care homes. After all, it’s your home and you should be able to live in it happily for as long as possible.
We firmly believe that patients recover and return to independence where they are at their most comfortable – at home. Hospitals provide a fantastic service for our sick, elderly and injured but it’s no secret that the NHS is strained beyond capacity. A recent article in the Guardian reported that more elderly people are dying following a fall due to the shortages of nurses, care assistants and care homes. We can help relieve that burden and provide our patients with life-changing techniques to live as independently as possible at home once their hospital stay has come to an end. If you or a loved one could benefit from our Physiotherapy or Occupational Therapy home visits, please get in touch and we will be delighted to help.
