Our physical therapists help patients to regain their strength and balance, prevent falls, increase range of motion, and decrease pain. Through therapeutic exercise programs, patients can increase their strength, muscle function, coordination, endurance, and mobility. This is especially important after a fall, injury, or surgery.
Our occupational therapists help patients to safely and independently perform activities of daily living, including cooking, bathing and dressing. Using a wide range of interventions, our therapists adapt tasks and modify the environment to enhance each patient’s ability to function in their physical and social environment. They provide sensori-motor treatments for strength, endurance, range of motion, coordination and balance, as well as therapeutic activities for memory, orientation, cognitive integration and daily life skills.
Our speech language pathologists design treatment plans to address communication problems, memory loss and swallowing dysfunction. These treatment plans can focus on comprehension skills for written and verbal communication as well as cognitive status, which may include memory, orientation and reasoning skills. For patients with swallowing disorders, speech language pathologists also work to address oral muscle strength and function for speaking and for safe eating and drinking.
Debs Agar has worked for the region’s mental health trust since qualifying in 2012, and moved to her current role within the wellbeing and therapy team, on the 15-bedded Thurne assessment ward at Norwich’s Hellesdon Hospital, last November.
She said she “absolutely loves” her job and the variety it brings, which includes supporting patients to engage in meaningful activities on the ward, to preparing them for discharge by assessing their independent living skills, such as cooking, self-care and financial management.
Ms Agar, who lives just outside Norwich, said: “I originally wanted to go into teaching but changed my mind after I saw the way an occupational therapist worked with my grandma when she fell ill. They enabled her to engage in activities of daily living while promoting her independence, and I really liked the way they supported her to do her best.
“I fell in love with mental health and how complex and rewarding it was while on a placement during my training. I really enjoyed the in-depth care I was able to give and decided that mental health was the area I’d like to specialise in.” Read more....http://bit.ly/2zqFTF6
