Joe, aged 27, was involved in a serious road accident and was referred to Rehab Jigsaw by family. He had sustained orthopaedic injuries and was making a good recovery but his family were concerned about his mental health and well-being. Upon referral, the Occupational Therapist carried out a full assessment of Joe’s current functional limitations; looking at physical, psychological and environmental/social factors. The Occupational Therapist was able to discuss Joe’s role loss and lack of sense of purpose with him and discuss how his low mood was further impacting his functional recovery.
Joe saw his GP, who prescribed medication and talking therapies for his depression. The OT was able to work with Joe over a period of time. The OT used practical strategies and education to develop self-management skills, focusing on recognising and proactively managing symptoms. The OT helped Joe re-establish his everyday routine and slowly increase the amount of activities he could undertake as his physical function and tolerances increased. When Joe felt his symptoms were more under control, the OT worked with Joe and his employer to develop a graded return to work programme.
