Hi I Have been to see an occupational therapist yesterday. He was lovely, listened to me and obviously understood. He asked me what I had difficulty with, the answer was endless. He suggested that they had a group session which enables people to try various devices, such as things to open bottles, before buying them. Which I thought was good.
I have osteoarthritis which as many know, affects your every day activities. Getting dressed or lifting a kettle, or even opening a bottle of water is a problem.
He also advised me to pace my life, try to my shopping online, and even suggested cleaning helps for my job, as I work as a cleaner.
Over all he was great, just sitting on a comfortable seat and talking to somebody who understands is what I needed this week. Even though trying to pace your life when, I have four grandchildren, and a 93 year old mother to look after is not easy. Also this week my son,s wife has had a cancer operation which which is worrying.
Anyway this is my moans for the day
Love this site
