With the pandemic compromising client mobility and well-being, Stiltz will be exploring the role of effective homelift applications during the pandemic at its inaugural CPD seminar of this year.
Led by Stiltz Homelifts’ Gino Farruggio (pictured), the seminar takes place in Theatre 1 at the Occupational Therapy Adaptations Conference (Exeter) on Wednesday (26 May) between 1.30pm and 2pm.
The pandemic has had a significant impact on clients with restricted mobility in terms of physical and mental health.
A recent report from Age UK states: “Two in five (42%) who had difficulty walking up and down the stairs before the first lockdown in March 2020 reported this activity became more difficult since then.”
The Stiltz seminar for healthcare and housing professionals will evaluate the clinical challenges of this trend whilst illustrating the role of homelifts to increase safety and meaningful activity. Associated topics, including reablement, the rehabilitation pathway and care cost savings, will also be discussed in relation to homelift provision.
Supporting the seminar, Stiltz advisors will be on Stand 4 to discuss the learning objectives in more detail whilst providing CPD certificates and the opportunity to book bespoke training.
Free literature will include DFG funding guides and evidence-based case studies – all focused on enhancing everyday practice and outcomes for clients in a COVID present society.
