Anglia Stairlifts has announced a partnership with an Occupational Therapist from Proactivity OT to provide support when conducting assessments.
In addition to assessments, Karen Forbes will also be on hand to offer customers of Anglia Stairlifts advice and guidance on any specific needs regarding their disability, and any other solutions which may be available to help them live independently.
Steve Wilson, director of Anglia Stairlifts, commented: “I am delighted to announce this agreement with Karen. Having worked together in the past I have seen first-hand, how knowledgeable Karen is and I know this is going to benefit Anglia Stairlifts and our customers in the Peterborough area.”
Forbes’ areas of expertise include the management of occupational therapy services and transformation of services. She also has experience in working with DFG (disabled facilities Grant) adaptations within the home, having worked in numerous local authorities and within the private sector in the UK.
Over the years, she has dealt with many major adaptations, which have included the assessments for and installation of stairlifts, level access showers and home extensions ramps to help individuals maintain their independence and live safely in their own home.
Forbes said: “Through a robust assessment process, and in conjunction with Anglia Stairlifts, I’m confident that we can find a stairlift solution or make relevant recommendations to ensure the client can live safely and independently at home.
“Having known Steve for several years, I am very excited about the prospect of working with him and the rest of the team as they share my ethos of believing that a stairlift has to meet the specific needs of the user and not just ‘tick the boxes’ from a sales perspective.”
