If you are having difficulties managing everyday things like getting out of the house, dressing, remembering things or returning to work, then your Neurological OT can help in several ways. They will be able to recommend the right equipment, modifications to the environment, cognitive or memory training strategies as well as many other ways to help you improve the ease with which you go about your day. This can sometimes be the difference between doing what you want independently or relying on others to help you.
It is essential that your Occupational Therapist thoroughly understands your needs and goals in order to help you build the best pathway to help you achieve your ambitions. The initial assessment is the first step in this process.
