This blog began as a journal of a Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Travel Award visit to the USA to study how Lifestyle Redesign could be used in Occupational Therapy to improve the hospital/home interface for older people. It has continued to record developments and inspiration gained from that experience since returning from Los Angeles early in 2012.

X is in neXt....

As in what’s next for this blog- OK cheating a bit I know, but X is difficult!
This blog began as a diary of the study visit I carried out earlier this year. I will continue to use it beyond the end of the A-Z challenge to record the experiences I have of putting my learning into action and sharing what I have learned. This will be an evolving process over time, so I will have plenty to write about.

The other day I did an informal presentation to the Occupational Therapy Support Workers group where I work, we had some really interesting discussions about the experiences I had and the similarities and differences between our workplace and those I visited. I was really inspired by their enthusiasm, interest and openness to new ideas.

I hope some of you who have become followers of this blog during the A-Z challenge will continue to follow and find this blog interesting and informative. I’ll try to keep it that way!


  1. Interesting series. I'll have to come back and read through it. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  2. Occupational Therapy is a field I'm familiar with. Our two grandsons have Myotonic Muscular Dystrophy and have worked with some very knowledgeable and caring individuals over their years.
    I'm visiting on the A to Z Challenge, but I also have just begun a blog about this topic. I'm a new follower.
