A qualified Occupational Therapist for over 25 years, Delia joined Anglia Case Management with a wealth of knowledge gained from working within the public, private and voluntary sector services with a wide cross section of adults and older persons affected by illness, trauma and/or the ageing process.
Delia’s expertise as an OT enables her to understand in detail the effects of long-term disability on independence within the home or wider community and to maximise quality of life through a range of suitably tailored solutions including housing or workplace adaptations, specialist equipment, management of anxiety, memory loss, re-education of role adjustment etc.
As part of her OT career, in 2003 Delia set up and ran her own business until 2017, which provided Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists to complete assessments of need for individuals referred mainly via public and voluntary sector services, to reduce waiting time delays and as part of delivering services of excellence.
As a result of her varied background Delia has a comprehensive clinical and non-clinical skill-set transferrable to the role of Case Manager and delivery of rehabilitation services to the highest standard.
Delia’s wide-ranging clinical experience enables her to provide case management to clients with diverse difficulties as a result of traumatic brain injury, dual diagnosis, complex orthopaedic or related trauma conditions such as spinal injuries, amputations and other complex disabilities. She works with clients both pre- and post-settlement of personal injury and medical negligence awards.
Delia is involved in all aspects of the case management role, and is an experienced report writer, preparing ‘immediate needs assessment’ reports, and ‘costed’ case management reports. She has extensive experience of managing rehabilitation packages for clients, and liaising with and leading the remote cohort of clinicians who make up the multidisciplinary team. She is passionate about providing the best quality service to her clients and ensuring that they are able to maximise their potential for independence following major trauma.
