Occupational Therapy in Case Management

What is the role of an Occupational Therapist in Case Management?

I’ve recently had the privilege of working with Case Managers

and assist their clients through Occupational Therapy input.

 

 

What is Occupational Therapy?

“Occupational therapy (OT) is a science degree-based, health and social care profession, regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council. Occupational therapy takes a “whole-person approach” to both mental and physical health and wellbeing and enables individuals to achieve their full potential.”

Royal College of Occupational Therapists (2021)

 


 

What is Case Management?

“Case Management is a collaborative process which: assesses, plans, implements, co-ordinates, monitors and evaluates the options and services required to meet an individual’s health, social care, educational and employment needs, using communication and available resources to promote quality cost effective outcomes.”

Case Management Society UK (2021)

 


 

The role of an Occupational Therapist in Case Management

 

  • Helping case managers who are looking for a prompt independent assessment, and reablement to help those with reduced mobility and health conditions, that make it difficult to carry out everyday activities at home or work.
  • Advise on ways to reduce the risk of falls, increase safety, and promote independence.
  • Provide recommendations for environmental modifications including minor and major adaptations, assistive technology, and equipment, rehousing, a workplace ergonomics assessment, vocational rehabilitation and specialist problem-solving based on individual needs.
  • Personal wellbeing is at the heart of the service.
  • Creating personalised reablement goals to develop, recover, and maintain the skills for daily living, to increase confidence through the therapeutic benefits of activities.
  • Providing a detailed comprehensive report provided to summarise and highlight recommendations.

Sophia is enthusiastic, motivating, knowledgeable and focused on obtaining the best outcomes. I would not hesitate to use Sophia’s services for my clients in future.”

Paul Withington, Case Manager for Harrisons Solicitors

“As a Case Manager, I reached out to Sophia for assistance with one of my clients in her local area. This was the first time I had worked with Sophia and I have to say she is excellent. Sophia’s communication is clear, concise and she responds very quickly to emails. The quality of the assessment report was very good and it is evident that Sophia is very experienced and knowledgeable in her field given the recommendations she had made. My client provided positive feedback following the assessment and we both look forward to working with her further. I will definitely work with Sophia again in the future!”
