The Assisted Living Team consists of Adult and Paediatric Occupational Therapists, Assistant Practitioners and Community Care Workers.
What do we do?
The primary aim is to enable adults and children to reach their optimum level of independence, maintain safety, maximise quality of life and promote dignity.
We undertake assessments for all ages and work with service users who have a wide range of disabilities e.g. neurological, genetic, learning disabilities, and long term conditions associated with old age frailty, including organic mental health conditions e.g. Dementia.
Strength based holistic assessments
We use a strength based approach and undertake holistic assessments: working closely with service users /families/carers and other health /social care colleagues to enable positive outcomes.
Following assessment we provide specialist advice e.g. moving and handling, equipment, minor property adaptations, Major Adaptations (Disabled facilities Grant) and housing recommendations.
Support and mentoring
As a valued member of Assisted Living Team you will be supported with regular supervision, a manageable and proportionate caseload, a visible and approachable management team. We promote agile working such as working from home or other council offices throughout the day to improve home /work life balance.
