If you experience problems with the toilet and transfer, an occupational therapist can help with giving advice.
What does the occupational therapist do?
The occupational therapist makes an inventory of the problems you encounter with all activities in daily life. The possibilities, wishes and needs are taken into account as much as possible. Occupational therapy is used to carry out activities independently for as long as possible.
Referral and compensation?
Occupational therapy is reimbursed from the basic health insurance. Everyone is entitled to ten hours of occupational therapy per year, but there are health insurers that reimburse more hours from the supplementary insurance. Inquire with your own insurance.
You can immediately make an appointment with the occupational therapist, a referral is not necessary (provided your insurance does not state this in the policy conditions).
Together with the occupational therapist, Toilet Op Maat (TOM) can also advise you on toilet problems. For more information about occupational therapy, see the website of Occupational Therapy Netherlands.
