Why have a consultation?

Why have a consultation?

If your loved one is starting to need more help at home but you aren't sure where to start with helping them, or that the waiting list is too long with your local authority, then a bespoke consultation over a video call can help. Getting help and advice now from an Occupational Therapist could help to prevent more serious difficulties in the future and keep your loved one in their own home for longer. 

During the call, one of our Occupational Therapists will work with you to assess the home environment. They'll produce a report offering advice and guidance to help make day-to-day life easier and enable a greater degree of independence. This report can be used in the wider system and form part of their ongoing healthcare plan. 

A Home Living Consultation will cost £79 including VAT (if you are eligible for VAT relief, this can be applied at the checkout). Simply click the button below to purchase.

If you'd like more information first, read our frequently asked questions below, or call one of our team on 0345 646 1861. If you prefer, you can fill in the form below and one of our team will be in touch to answer any questions you might have. When you're happy to go ahead, they'll set you up with an appointment and take payment.

How the Home Living Consultation Service works

The consultation will be performed by a qualified Occupational Therapist over WhatsApp, Zoom, Facetime or a Microsoft Teams video call. Over an hour and a half, the Occupational Therapist will look at what your loved one can and can't do for themselves and around the home, identify their goals and lookiat what needs to be done in order to help them retain their independence.

If you know you definitely want a consultation for your loved one, you can purchase one using the button below. Once purchased, one of our team will be in touch to book your appointment.

Frequently asked questions

This assessment covers ways to help with physical disabilities for those over the age of 18. It's primarily aimed at those who aren't already speaking with/under assessment with an Occupational Therapist through their local council although we are happy to give a second opinion, should you need one.

You can book a consultation for yourself or a loved one, but if you're booking it for someone else please make sure you have their consent to have a consultation before booking.

The consultation costs £79, including VAT. You can claim VAT relief for this service at checkout.

Yes, of course, but please try and keep it to 1-2 people max on the call. This is so we can make sure the focus is on the person being assessed, as it should be.

You'll need a smart device that can accept video calls. It also needs to be portable enough to carry around, so it can't be done using a desktop computer. A smart phone or a tablet device would be best but a laptop also works if you (or the person with you) can carry it round.

During the consultation, the Occupational Therapist will:

  • Discuss the challenges your loved one faces in getting around
  • Evaluate the environment they live in
  • Work with them to understand what their goals are and how they can be achieved

After the consultation, the Occupational Therapist will send you a report containing all their findings and recommendations.

One thing to note: our consultations won't cover moving and handling plans or any major adaptations. This is because these are detailed services that in our professional opinion would both need a physical home visit.

The consultation will take around one hour. After the consult is done, you'll receive your report with recommendations within 5-10 working days.

No, consultations are currently only available Monday to Friday between 8:30am and 4:30pm plus limited evening appointments. One of our team will let you know the available times for a consultation when they call you after you've filled in the form or purchased a consultation.
