Scope is continuing to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) health alert with the safety of our customers and employees our top priority. To this end, we are making some temporary changes to the way services are delivered to make sure we can still support you with essential services while keeping everyone safe.
From Wednesday 18th March, face to face therapy will only be available from Scope’s therapy centres. We have implemented social distancing for those accessing services in these Therapy Centres.
We are offering phone meetings and online therapy sessions with your therapist. If you’re interested, please contact your therapist or scheduler who will help you access this option.
Community-based face to face therapy in your home or other places will be postponed until further notice.
We will continue to deliver therapy that directly relates to the safety of our customers – this includes swallowing/dysphagia assessments, pressure care issues, manual handling and some behaviour support.
If you think you or the person you support requires therapy directly relating to their safety please ring and discuss with our therapy team.
DLO and STAA (respite)
Currently, our DLO and respite services will remain open, but we have restricted activities including those that occur out in the community.
We will advise customers if this changes. Please check the Scope website and social media for regular updates.
In home services
We continue to support customers in homes with essential services and work closely with your support network to make sure you are supported. However, we are restricting activities in the community until further notice.
