Paediatric 24 hour Assessment

Paediatric 24 hour Assessment

24 hours assessment involves your child being assessed right from the beginning of the day when they get up until they go back to bed in the evening. Every aspect of your child's daily life and the activities they carry out daily will be assessed. A risk assessment will then be completed for your home environment.

Throughout the 24 hour assessment, you, your child and their carers will be educated by the physiotherapist on a variety of things. This may include a home exercise programme and techniques for safe and effective manual handling.

Following your child's assessment, a full documented report will be produced, including any recommendations that we may have to make the day easier and safer. This could include, but is not limited to, transfer techniques and adaptations.

For any ongoing physiotherapy treatment that may be required, it may be possible for us to refer your child for NHS or private services that may be beneficial to continue.

To break down the benefits of a 24 hour assessment for your child, these may include:
