Further Details

The Adult Community Rehabilitation Team (ACRT) is an interdisciplinary team made up of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech & language therapists, neuro and clinical psychologists rehab assistants and administrators.

ACRT aims to enhance the health, independence and well being of adults living in the community with a neurological or physical disability.

ACRT works with clients to identify rehabilitation goals and offer tailor made programmes. Clients are seen in the most appropriate place for them e.g. at home, place of work or study.

Although intervention is not time limited, we will work with clients for around six sessions and review goals to determine progress, further intervention and future plans.

Some examples of our work:
> progressive neurological conditions such as MS, MND, Parkinsons Disease
> Acquired Brain Injury including stroke
> falls including balance group
> COPD including pulmonary rehab
> helping people to access community services such as leisure centres and voluntary organizations
> helping people make choices about their disability and coming to terms with the impact of their disability
> preventing admission to hospital
> helping clients function to improve following hospital admission
> a range of other groups such as Mindfulness and MS Support Group
