Sensory Impairment Team Assessment
I have a relative who, like me, has a hearing problem. Her hearing is getting worse and she has been offered an assessment by her Local Council's Sensory Impairment Team. During the telephone call to arrange the appointment she was told that the way they (Council Occupational Therapy Department) provide equipment has changed.
On their website it says under services offered: "assessing and providing appropriate equipment to help with daily living."
It sounds as if the Occupational Therapist may be able to, at the assessment, recommend or advise on any suitable equipment but not actually be able to provide it. Does this sound likely and may be becuse of cut backs?
I would be happy to pass on any helpful information to her.
