ergotherapy

The tips of the ergo therapeutic to make my daily exercises as easy and ergonomically as possible are fine.
Because there are always movements which I made automatically my hole life, but through the spasm I can't make them at all, it's fine to make other easier movements which I learned from my ergo therapeutic.
As well as the adjustments in and around my house as the support for financial help are a positive experiences for me.

What does the ergo therapist do

An ergo therapist guides people with PLS to avoid or minimize the restrictions in their daily activities. The point is that the patient can continue to do what he / she wants to do for as long as possible. In ergo therapy, the daily activities, which the PLS patient considers important, are central. An occupational therapist works with the PLS patient to find solutions to problems in these daily activities. He / she looks at the PLS patient and his living, working and social environment. The ergo therapist comes to the PLS patient's home to analyze which aids and / or facilities are needed. The ergo therapist consults with the other care providers of a PLS patient.

The ergo therapist supports the PLS patients in maintaining as much independence as possible in:

mobility
self-care
household
communication
work
daytime activities and social and community activities outside the home. help with a good sitting posture and possibly head support. The ergo therapist can come for a home visit. The home visit is often aimed at mapping the home and giving advice in the area in the home. In addition, it may also be that a fitting of an aid takes place at home to see whether you can function with the aid in the home, for example an electric wheelchair. PLS is a disease that can lead to more and more disabilities. The PLS patient is informed as fully as possible about the consequences of the disease and about the available resources. This enables PLS patients to anticipate changes in daily life. The ergo therapist and the PLS patient therefore also discuss the expected deterioration. This way they can already think together about which aids will be needed in time. So that the PLS patient can continue to do as much independently as possible even with further physical deterioration.
