A client centred approach to bathing

Adam Ferry, Occupational Therapist, The OT Service. Theatre 2. 12:00 – 12:30pm.
This seminar highlights clinical and legislative evidence to support bath justification and funding. Delegates will be able to discuss the wellbeing-related and safety benefits of bathing verses adapted showering, as well as the benefits to OTs of prescribing a specialist bath for clients.


This seminar forms part of the free Abacus nationwide CPD training programme and ‘Lunch and Learn’ assisted bathing workshops, which support OTs, Physiotherapists and moving and handling practitioners in delivering a positive bathing experience for bathers and carers.

Abacus Regional Assessment Managers works closely with healthcare and housing professionals to deliver best-fit specialist bathroom solutions for client and carer wellbeing. Evidence of these successful outcomes will be available at Stand C5, alongside demonstrations of the height-adjustable Gemini 2000 platform bath. A longer, wider and deeper version of the popular Gemini 1700 – this new 2000mm long bath provides adjustable space and assured future-proofed bathing for growing bathers. Built-in antimicrobial BioCote technology provides advanced infection control against Superbugs 24/7, for additional peace of mind.
