Last week at Josephs Court we were lucky to have a visit from our local branch of Remap.
Remap is a charity which produces aids and equipment for people with disabilities where there are no suitable alternatives. The service is free of charge and produced entirely by volunteers and they work throughout the Essex area. Remap Essex are four of 94 local groups spread across the UK.
Peter, Martin and Ashley came along to meet our clients on Wednesday 01 March, and we were delighted to welcome them to our centre. They gave a presentation on the work they do and addressed our client’s questions and afterwards sat with each individual client and made arrangements to visit them to hopefully help with their needs.
Each piece of equipment is tailor made to suit the specific needs of the individual, and they like to work with health professionals like occupational therapists or physiotherapists to make sure the equipment provided meets the needs of each person.
It was great to see our clients coming along to the talk, asking questions about adapting all sorts of things from mobility scooters to back scratchers and repurposing everyday objects to support independence.
Thank you to everyone who came along, and a big thank you to Remap Essex for taking the time to visit us!
