Things to talk through with your family/ carers/ support team:
- What activities are you involved in throughout your week?
- Would you like to try other activities?
- Are there activities that you would like to try that you have been unable to do?
Sometimes keeping a house tidy and safe can be hard, particularly when you are not sure of who to contact when you need help and how to keep things clean.
Please find a list of emergency contacts below. For further information on support in self care activities please contact the Occupational Therapy department on 01383 565223.
Answering the door
"An individual was unsure of where to start with cleaning their living room and overtime rubbish piled up. The person worked with Occupational Therapy and identified steps to clear the floor. The person removed a small amount of rubbish at a time and over a few days they had cleared the floor. Breaking things into small manageable chunks meant that the person was able to clear the floor”.
