Occupational Therapy is very important work with regard elderly patients to teach them exercise and rehabilitation techniques that make completing daily tasks, such as dressing, eating, and bathing, much easier. Occupational therapists help patients improve their fine and basic motor skills, strength, dexterity, and their range of motion. We welcome our new OT Nellie Botha to the HSFA family, She qualified as an Occupational Therapist in 1997 at Stellenbosch University and gained experience in SA and the UK, in a variety of hospitals, rehab units, a group home, community teams and community centres with adult and elderly patients who had physical and/or mental health problems. She has been working in the Helderberg area in neurology- and physical rehab, elderly and dementia care and as locum OT at a mental health clinic.
Nellie is now assisting the nursing and management team at HSFA to assess residents who might have had a fall or a decline in function to advise on the support they need.
The HSFA arranged training on how to use a hoist (bed lift) to help our OT’s or nurses get residents into their beds.
