Penny West Independent Occupational Therapist and Case Manager
Welcome to my website
- I am a freelance occupational therapist in private practice and a case manager. In both roles I am committed to supporting people make the most of their lives in spite of disability or illness. I have lots of experience as a clinician and as a manager in health and social care services, so I do appreciate how difficult it can be at times for individuals to find their way around the maze of our health and care system.
- As an occupational therapist I work with individuals and families to help people achieve the occupations/activities that are important to them and, where necessary, help them locate the support or equipment they may need. I work alongside people to help them identify what is fundamentally important to them; then I help people use their own internal and external resources to move in the direction both they, and their family, want. This may involve making suggestions about equipment, Telecare , techniques, or alternate living options; or, using solution focused approaches to help people reach their preferred goals. I aim to help people continue to live fulfilling lives as independently as possible,
- As a case manager I work with people who have had a catastrophic injury to find out what they need to get their lives back on track. This requires what is called "Initial Needs Assessment" and if the insurance company agrees with my recommendations, I may work with the individual over time to help put the recommendations into place.
I would be happy to discuss your needs with no obligation.
I am based in North London and am prepared to travel in or out of London.
