You agree not to use the website in a way that may impair the performance, corrupt the content or otherwise reduce the overall functionality of the Website. You also agree not to compromise the security of the Website or attempt to gain access to secured areas or sensitive information.

ROLE OF CARERS
Regular home support is vital in ensuring the best outcomes from therapy. The therapist will discuss appropriate strategies and activities and how frequently specific tasks should be carried out at home. It is essential that you commit to carrying out the advice provided in order for the expected level of progress to be made.
We offer a 15 minute free consultation to discuss your specific needs and describe our service. This is via telephone call, Skype, face time or email enquiry. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have a query.
CONSENT TO TREATMENT
By attending therapy sessions it is presumed you are consenting to treatment and have read and understood the above terms and conditions. Clients will be discharged at the end of an episode of care. This is when therapy is complete or when the client’s potential is achieved in the area targeted by therapy. You may also choose to withdraw from therapy at any time, or postpone therapy.
FEES & TRAVEL COST
Fees are agreed prior to assessment & treatment commencing. The fee includes time spent outside the session in planning, preparing therapy materials, and any necessary telephone/email liaison with clients,family and other professionals. It also includes the cost of assessment and paper based therapy materials. Travel is charged at 0.45p per mile.
All fees are agreed prior to the start of therapy. All sessions must be paid for in advance or on the day. Payments can be made by cash, cheque or direct bank transfer. A written receipt/invoice can be provided on request. If a session is not paid for on the day, further sessions may be suspended until payment has been made.
24 hours’ notice is required. Sessions cancelled after this time or not attended will be charged at 50% the usual rate. However we understand that unforeseen situations may occasionally prevent attendance and we can discuss this if it occurs.
A client may withdraw from therapy at any time. A week’s notice would be appreciated. Occasionally we may need to rearrange your appointment. We will aim to contact you at least 48 hours in advance and arrange another appointment to suit you.
LOCATION OF SESSIONS
Sessions can take place at your home, the client’s nursing home/residential home or the therapist’s clinic base. It is requested that clients provide a quiet environment, free from distraction (e.g. phone, TV). When a session is arranged at a care home, the care home must be informed and be in agreement. It is expected that a member of staff will be available to discuss the session.
LETTERS, REPORTS & TREATMENT PROGRAMS
These will be written at the client’s request and will incur additional costs. Reports or advice will only be distributed to other relevant professionals (e.g. GP) with the consent and signature of the client/guardian.
CIRCULATION OF REPORTS / SHARING INFORMATION
It is considered best practice to share information with relevant professionals in order for you to receive appropriate therapy and for us to work efficiently and effectively with you. However we are committed to protecting your privacy and therefore your agreement will be sought before information/reports are circulated or prior to consultation with other professionals unless we are obliged by law to disclose personal data.
