Gaining Independence

Following an accident or injury, people can be faced with life changing circumstances. They have to relearn how to do certain things and their home and life may need to be adapted to fit their health needs and function. I use my knowledge to help my clients to develop or recover the skills needed for daily living and working. I treat people within their own homes and local community and take a very practical and enabling approach.

“I have worked with Claire for about 8 years both in her capacity as a Case Manager and as an Occupational Therapist with clients affected by brain injury. She is thoughtful and considered and demonstrates clear leadership in her case management roles. She is empathetic and client-centred, working with all parties to ensure the best outcome for the client. Her OT skills are highly developed, particularly in relation to hand function and rehabilitation. It is always rewarding to be part of a professional team with Claire”
