With the pandemic compromising client mobility and well-being, Stiltz will be exploring the role of effective homelift applications during the pandemic at its CPD seminar at OTAC Exeter.

Presented by Stiltz’ Gino Farruggio, the CPD seminar – ‘Homelift assessments and applications’ – is aimed at healthcare and housing professionals.

It draws on a recent Age UK report, which found that 42 percent of individuals who had difficulty walking up and down the stairs before the first lockdown in March 2020 reported this activity became more difficult since then. This highlights that the pandemic pandemic has had a significant impact on clients with restricted mobility in terms of physical and mental health.

The Stiltz webinar will evaluate the clinical challenges of this trend whilst illustrating the role of homelifts in increasing safety and meaningful activity. Associated topics including reablement, the rehabilitation pathway and care cost savings will also be discussed in relation to homelift provision.

This session will take place in Theatre 1 from 1.30-2pm.

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.

The Occupational Therapy Adaptations Conference (OTAC) in Exeter will take place on 26th May 2021 at the Exeter Racecourse, Kennford, Exeter, Devon.
