Jane Reid Occupational Therapy BSc Hons People Handling and Risk Assessment Key Trainer’s Certificate 2021 - Distinction

Jane Reid Occupational Therapy

I am a highly specialist and experienced Occupational Therapist focussing on housing, major adaptations, specialist equipment, complex seating, wheelchairs and moving and handling for all client groups.

I hold a People Handling and Risk Assessment Key Trainer’s Certificate 2021 graded the highest level of distinction.

I work with case managers and legal firms for clinical negligence and personal injury clients.

I assess children and young clients with a range of disabilities, from mobility problems needing a level-access shower or stair lift, to severe physical disabilities needing wheelchair-accessible facilities and specialist equipment such as hoisting, through floor lifts, specialist seating and specialist beds.

I have considerable experience in working with children with complex needs and worked in children's services for over 20 years.

My aim is to empower people with disabilities to achieve their full potential, and to enable families to care for their loved ones at home in a safe environment.

I offer client-centred assessments at home, work or school. with comprehensive reports of functional needs and abilities with detailed recommendations for adaptations and equipment to increase independence.

I have vast experience of therapy equipment and have an interest in sourcing innovative technology and equipment to help clients maximise their potential.

I believe that adapting the environment is key to enabling independence and to allow safe moving and handling for carers. I am fully committed to liaising with architects and builders to achieve the best outcome for my clients.

I am experienced in assessing for slings and hoisting equipment and training carers in safe moving and handling techniques, as well as providing personalised visual manual handling plans to provide ongoing guidance.

I have experience working with clients with behavioural difficulties such as autism. I provide strategies and equipment for creating a safe environment in the home, garden and car.
