We act in Unity

We are stronger together. We unite people around you to support you on your journey.
These people will be focused on helping you to achieve your aspirations.

AJ Case Management have an established network of skilled and dedicated therapists who we work with to provide rehabilitation programs. We are always looking to expand our network and continually seek new therapists to bring additional expertise to our therapy teams.

Therapists provide assessment and treatment at a location convenient to the client. Assessments can be carried out by an individual therapist or by an interdisciplinary team, depending on the need of the client. Interventions include SMART goals and outcome measures are recorded to monitor change.

AJ Case Management aims to source and manage a multidisciplinary team (MDT) to meet the needs of their client, ensuring intra-disciplinary working is established and rehabilitation goals are met.

 

Your Therapy Team may Include:

Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists believe that people can develop their skills and improve their wellbeing through participating in activities that are meaningful and purposeful to that individual.

The primary goal of Occupational Therapy is to enable individuals to participate in the activities of everyday life. Outcomes are achieved by enabling people to do things that will enhance their ability to participate or by modifying the environment to better support participation. Occupational Therapists use careful analysis of physical, environmental, psychosocial, mental, spiritual, political and cultural factors to identify barriers to occupation.

 Occupational Therapy approaches include:

 • Teaching new ways of approaching tasks
• Comprehensive home and job site   evaluations with adaptation recommendations
• Adaptive equipment recommendations and usage training
