Here at the Centre we can look at environmental control devices that can enable a person to access their environment independently.
There are a variety of environmental controls ranging from simple controls to access just a couple of items in your environment up to more complex devices than can be used to control your TV, lights, radio, curtains and doors.
Following a discussion with yourself and/or the referring professional, an appointment will be made for you at the Centre. There is no charge for this Assessment.
What an Assessment consists of?
An Occupational Therapist will complete a brief interview first asking details about your medical condition or disability and how this affects you. We will then take you to the technology department where you can try out using the environmental controls
After an Assessment?
Following your assessment you will receive advice and information on different environmental controls. The Occupational Therapist can offer you advice and information on the equipment that you tried or refer you to specialised technology centres.
