OT Visit

Postby ChloeCat » Sun Aug 16, 2009 7:05 pm

Well the OT came round on Friday and has gone through everything and agreed I need rails at the doorstep into the house, extra stair rail going upstairs, a rail over the bath, a shower seat across the bath and a frame around the toilet. I'm so pleased as it will be a great help. As we only have an upstairs bathroom, and no downstairs loo, unfortunately the only thing she could offer was a commode, but I really don't want to go there (no room in any room but sitting room with a dodgy door and directly opposite front door anyone? quite apart from humiliation) so I'm going to press on setting off the moment I feel the urge and hope I get there in time (only a couple of accidents so far - TMD). She's also referring me to the Community Rehab Team as she thinks they will be able to help more as she only has certain equipment available. But I'm very hapy :D

The fatigue has been awful the last few days, though.

Gentle hugs to all,
Fran

Hi Chloie cat
Thats good news, my OT was a great help.
I got offered a commode for downstairs to, but said no.
She brought me around a form to fill in about a goverment grant, i got approved it and they got me a walk in shower with toilet & sink fitted downstairs.
It is a great help as we moved our bed into my ex dining room.

Wow, that sounds great. I'm waiting to see what the Rehab Team say. It sounds like they have more clout. They're still OTs but a different branch, by the sound of it.
