Better results – together

The issues that make a patient’s daily life more difficult are mapped together with the client and their nearest and dearest, and the goals for the therapy are defined at the beginning of the period of therapy. The goals, measures and indicators to measure the effectiveness of therapy are recorded in a therapy plan. Effectiveness is evaluated together with the client and the people closest to them at the end of the period of therapy.

The best results are achieved by means of close cooperation with the clients, their nearest and dearest, and other people present in their daily lives.
