Complex and Minor Home Modifications
Ensuring your home environment is safe and accessible, facilitates independence. Our recommendations can range from installing simple grab rails to carrying out complex modifications for wheelchair accessibility and high care needs.
Equipment for Daily Living and Independence, Assistive Technology
We identify the right assistive technology aids that support participants in accomplishing daily tasks, from mobility aids including walkers and wheelchairs to daily living gadgets to assist with dressing or eating.
Individual wheelchair Assessments ensure that any mobility aids used are individually suited to the participant, considering factors such as comfort, fit, function, and lifestyle. We strive to improve mobility and autonomy, enhancing our clients ability to engage in their home and community.
Prevention and management of pressure injuries vital for those with mobility impairment through the use of specialist equipment. Through detailed assessments, education, and recommending pressure-relieving equipment, we assist our clients in maintaining skin integrity and preventing pressure-related complications.
Functional Capacity Assessments (FCAs)
Our skilled therapists conduct home based (face to face) assessments that identify disability related gaps in functional abilities, while providing reasonable and necessary recommendations to assist with capacity building. We focus on the individual’s ability to perform tasks essential to independent living ranging from self-care activities such as bathing, dressing, and feeding, to more complex tasks like cooking, cleaning, or managing medications. We evaluate an individual’s current abilities, challenges, and goals and then design a personalised plan that could include skill-building activities, suggesting suitable assistive technology, or recommending modifications to the individual’s environment.
Supported Independent Living (SIL) Assessment or Supported Disability Accommodation (SDA) Assessments are conducted by Momentum OTs. These assessments assist to identify specific requirements when considering accommodation options and associated care needs.
Manual Handling Assessments
Ensure safety and wellbeing for both participants and their caregivers during manual handling tasks, such as lifting, transferring, or repositioning an individual, which can pose significant risks if not conducted properly. Our Occupational Therapists analyse various tasks that caregivers or family members may need to perform then provide tailored training based on our findings, ensuring all manual handling activities are carried out safely and efficiently.
