Two tasty ones for you today. I was at the OT show last week and we ran a ‘Challenge Remap’ activity. The results have been…challenging.
Most of the referrals generated are winging their way to the nearest panel as we speak. However, we’ve got two cases still in the office where the local panel have said they can’t help. I know how much you all like an impossible challenge, so I thought we’d put them up here before admitting defeat.
The first is for a lady in North London who wants to keep knitting after her stroke. She can use one of her arms, but her vision isn’t great and (if I remember correctly) her fine motor skills in her good hand may not be the best either.
The second is for a gentleman in Surrey who can’t use either of his arms and wants to be able to toilet independently – including pulling trousers up and down.
Do give us a shout if you fancy either of these and we’ll put you in touch. Thanks all!
