Welcome to the East Staffordshire Adult Ability Service
The Adult Ability Team (AAT) is a nationally recognised, community based Specialist Nursing and Neurological Rehabilitation Service, offering therapeutic interventions and ‘clinical championship’ for people with progressive neurological conditions, supporting people from diagnosis through all stages of their condition. Types of conditions supported are:
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Motor Neurone Disease
- Muscular Dystrophy and other similar conditions which have been formally diagnosed by a medical consultant
More about us
With the overarching philosophy of self-management and person centred care the team assess and agree treatment programmes tailored to individuals own goals, to help them develop skills to manage their own condition at home and to help them live their life in the way they choose.
This may involve supporting people with medication management, education regarding their condition, prescription of equipment to assist everyday life and the provision of rehabilitation and exercise programmes. The team also provide advice and support for carers and families and can signpost to other organisations as appropriate.
Stress and anxiety management programme
As well as individual treatment programmes, the team have recently developed a stress and anxiety management programme for people with a Progressive Neurological Condition, as well as running symptom management educational programmes and newly diagnosed courses.
