Neurological Occupational Therapy - Occupational Rehabilitation Services

At Healing Touch Rehab, we are highly trained professionals who work closely with patients to create personalised treatment plans based on their specific needs. We use evidence-based techniques and interventions to address the physical, cognitive, sensory, and emotional challenges associated with neurological conditions, which can have a significant impact on an individual’s daily life, making it difficult for them to perform everyday tasks and engage in activities that are meaningful to them.

Occupational Therapy and Rehabilitation

For occupational therapists, an occupation isn’t just work; it encompasses a wide range of activities that hold significant meaning and purpose for individuals. This can include vocational training, leisure pursuits, personal care tasks, and household chores. The ability to engage in these occupations is crucial for overall health and well-being. We focus on providing rehabilitation services tailored to address conditions such as stroke, brain injuries, and neurologic impairments. Through evidence-based treatments and clinical expertise, we help patients improve their functional abilities and enhance their quality of life.

Functional rehabilitation, a cornerstone of occupational therapy, focuses on helping individuals with neurological conditions regain independence in meaningful activities. Through a collaborative assessment process involving skilled therapists, we pinpoint areas of functional challenges and tailor a comprehensive program to maximise the client’s autonomy in daily life. This includes modifying home environments, utilising specialised equipment for mobility and seating, and providing tailored interventions to support the client’s journey towards improved function.

We provide comprehensive assessments and personalised treatments for individuals undergoing rehabilitation, occupational therapy, or neurological conditions. Our team of expert therapists takes a holistic approach, considering the physical, psychological, social, and environmental needs of each individual. We focus on enhancing strengths, abilities, and healthcare requirements to improve functional skills and manage daily activities effectively.

Our collaborative approach with clients in this field of therapy for neurological conditions involves a comprehensive assessment that addresses all aspects of rehabilitation. We utilise activities as therapeutic tools to problem-solve and enhance functional abilities, incorporating group work, environmental adaptations, and appropriate equipment usage. This holistic approach ensures tailored treatment plans that support neurorehabilitation goals effectively.

 Following  a comprehensive assessment, the client’s needs are identified and personalised, SMART goals are set.  Occupational focussed rehabilitation is used to support clients  to regain and maintain independence at their work, occupations, school and other areas that are important to them.  The interventions are evaluated and this process of assessment, planning, intervention and evaluation is cyclical and often repeated at various stages of therapy.

We aim to enhance their functional abilities and promote a healthy, fulfilling lifestyle through evidence-based practices. Our occupational therapy services cater to individuals of all ages, addressing neurologic conditions such as stroke, brain injury, and spinal cord impairments.

Book a treatment home, school or community visit

To make clients feel as comfortable as possible, we offer home visits or arrange treatment at one of our community clinics at William Merritt Centre, Leeds, or a similar centre or location of your choice in your local community across the North West and Yorkshire, or we could arrange to see you at a suitable space within your community.

We appreciate our clients may have mobility restrictions and will always consider how to make consultations and treatments as convenient, time optimised and pain-free as possible. Community-based rehabilitation and integration back into the community is the key to any successful rehabilitation. Besides the benefit of a familiar environment and the discipline of following treatment plans within their own setting , community-based treatment enables the client to stay motivated while involving their family and friends.
