Occupational Therapy-SROT

SROT (Specialist Rehabilitation Occupational Therapy)

What is this?

Think Therapy 1st have developed a Specialist Rehabilitation Occupational Therapy (SROT) approach, providing an individualised, holistic, interactive and face to face rehabilitation programme, delivered in the client’s home, or wherever they need it!

Think Therapy 1st only use qualified and highly experienced SROT’s to deliver the rehabilitation which always focuses on restoring function. This empowers the client to adapt to their long-term injury/disability by focusing purely on a practical return to their previous activities and ensuring they have a sense of control over their situation. This means input can be short lived, strictly time bound and easily costed, with maximum long-term benefits for the client and although usually delivered face to face, remote sessions can be utilised effectively with some clients.

How do we do this?

Think Therapy 1st use projects to overarch interventions, sessions are given meaning and therapeutic value. Whilst providing a balance of challenge and accomplishment, projects are a unique and rewarding way to effectively deliver therapy with amazing results. Being goal-led and outcome focused, Think Therapy 1st never do anything for the client that they can do for themselves. This empowers them to reclaim their life and manage their own case, making ourselves effectively redundant by the end of our intervention! Think Therapy 1st can commission, coordinate and manage all third parties required as part of a multidisciplinary approach but will ultimately educate the client to do this themselves (if possible), giving them lifelong independence. If this is not possible, Think Therapy 1st will optimise their independence and make recommendations for appropriate additional services to address this.

How do we prove this?

Utilising specialist clinical assessments Think Therapy 1st measure physical, psychological/emotional, and cognitive function as well as pain levels, sleep quality and their current environments. Using these Think Therapy 1st can clearly measure and evidence improvement, reporting to the client and referrers via concise monthly reports, and withdrawing as soon as goals have been achieved.

EVERY client, EVERY injury and EVERY rehab journey are different, but Think Therapy 1st always aim to keep it simple and transparent.
