Advice, tips and suggestions from our in house Occupational Therapist - Anthea

When you have a friend or a relative that is becoming a little less mobile and you are wondering what you can do to help them, a fantastic place to start is to speak with an Occupational Therapist. There are over 5,000 Occupational Therapists (OT’s in the industry) in the UK who provide an invaluable service in helping to assess an individual's capabilities (and limitations) and then give the support and advice on the equipment to enable that person to live independently.


We are very pleased to be working with one of the most experienced Occupational Therapists in the country. Having carried out approximately 32,000 assessments of people with a huge variety of needs and requirements, Anthea has an extremely diverse range of experience that she is passing onto the Age Enable community. Anthea trained at the Derby School of Occupational Therapy from 1966 to 1969. Since then she has worked for an Orthopaedic Hospital in Nottinghamshire and Social Services Departments and privately across the country: from Gwent to Leicestershire, Hackney to Sussex. Some of these assessments have been for litigation purposes as a trusted advisor to the courts.


With Anthea we have written a number of tutorials that we think you will find both interesting and very helpful. We aim to cut through the mumbo jumbo and get down to the basics – what can my friend or relative do for themselves and what equipment is out there that can help.
