As a carer most things that happen i can see the point of, but Merrill started to see o/t and physio and they both set her goals to achieve which to me makes sound sense little steps forward is how i see this but physio has started to send an assistant round once a week and all she does is walk 100 yds to the shop and back and thats it, although Merrills mobility is poor and she moves slowly i try to take her for a 15 minute walk each day as told to by the o/t so i don't understand why someone comes once a week to walk 100 yards and that is their job done what is the point of that or am i missing something .

thanks Rod

Rod, I can fully understand your frustration but think about this. Not all patients do as their physio/OT ask so it's probably good for the physio's assistant to make sure that Merril does;-) Or maybe the physio can't think what else to do with the assistant, it must be difficult sometimes and maybe you and Merril look kind;-)
