@BillWongOT @clarewilding but sometimes I think it’s unavoidable. Church, for example, would take me 20-30 minutes by car. 1/2 #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:12:48 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @clarewilding yes I agree, I like to try to walk more. But driving often gives greater freedom either as a driver or passenger #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:12:53 +0000)
@pd2ot @Dai2584 That’s the often quoted example for dissociation. #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:12:55 +0000)
@Symbolic_Life @gilliancrossley I never do.. really. Although, i found learning easier than expected regardless of my dyspraxia #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:13:08 +0000)
@BillWongOT @clarewilding yet it will take me 1-1.5 hours if I take public transportation. #otalk 2/2(Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:13:09 +0000)
@Keeper85 @allisulli @clissa89 @gilliancrossley I agree….driving for me is a great stress reliever #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:13:50 +0000)
@BillWongOT @Symbolic_Life @gilliancrossley @OTalk_Occhat and I personally hate reading maps. I would rather rely on my GPS. #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:13:51 +0000)
@allisulli @clarewilding I agree. I choose to live in a city near my work to cut down on the amount of driving I so. But I value the choice too #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:13:58 +0000)
@LeonoraOT #OTalk I live rurally so driving = social connection out here. #access (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:14:00 +0000)

@clissa89 @BillWongOT @clarewilding not driving means I often injure myself carrying things I shouldn’t… definitely limited without it #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:14:09 +0000)
@gilliancrossley so how would you feel if the ability to drive was taken away? How would this impact on life? occ participation? #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:14:33 +0000)
@OTalk_Occhat @Keeper85 what do you think it is about driving that relieves stress? #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:14:34 +0000)
@clarewilding @BillWongOT #otalk I agree, driving is convenient & sometimes only poss way to get there, but still problematic(Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:14:38 +0000)
@Cathy_OT @gilliancrossley I have done on long commutes. Especially during my stoke placement. It’s amazing how many skills are required! #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:14:51 +0000)
@pd2ot @clissa89 @BillWongOT @clarewilding Oh yes, I had some ‘interesting’ moments on an overloaded bicycle when I didn’t have a car #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:14:55 +0000)
@clarewilding @gilliancrossley #otalk freedom yes, but also creates other difficulties(Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:15:25 +0000)
@OTalk_Occhat @LeonoraOT this is a really good point, re rural living. Think @pd2ot also mentioned driving being necessity #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:15:29 +0000)
@BillWongOT @clarewilding But I do say sometimes not driving is better. This AOTA conference I am getting there by train instead of driving. #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:15:33 +0000)

@gilliancrossley @Cathy_OT yes stroke placement really made me think about this. There are s huge amount of skills needed #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:15:53 +0000)

@Cathy_OT @gilliancrossley Would certainly be a struggle. Especially if driving is considered a meaningful occupation in itself. #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:16:24 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @clarewilding can you elaborate? #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:16:36 +0000)
@BillWongOT @pd2ot @clissa89 @clarewilding Since I can’t bike, my problems would be walking w/ heavy stuff to the nearest bus stop. #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:16:37 +0000)

@BillWongOT @allisulli @gilliancrossley and sometimes non-city roads can present their unique challenges. #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:17:41 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @Keeper85 @OTalk_Occhat stress relief for me is driving in the country, singing my head off!! #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:17:46 +0000)
@OTalk_Occhat @queenmullers great point – I often hear people say that driving is a great space for reflection #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:17:55 +0000)

@allisulli @OTalk_Occhat @leonoraot @pd2ot also driving = occupational justice. It is illegal for women to drive in some countries! #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:18:24 +0000)

@pd2ot @gilliancrossley I observed a memory clinic and this was an issue on initial ax – was generally the most significant part of session #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:20:05 +0000)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT @pd2ot @clarewilding yup 😦 that’s a weekly problem for me. hypermobile joints & heavy shopping don’t mix! #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:20:07 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @queenmullers @OTalk_Occhat same for me! I value the alone time driving gives me #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:20:29 +0000)
@Cathy_OT @Symbolic_Life @gilliancrossley I agree. For example a lot of jobs won’t consider you unless you have a driving licence. #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:20:36 +0000)

@Sibellgul #OTalk once I had a client he worked as a driver and only driver at home. RTA lost use of his legs. His world changed upside down(Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:21:46 +0000)
@Cathy_OT @queenmullers @otalk_occhat I find the same. Plus it feels like more natural reflection than forced (if that makes sense) #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:21:48 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @BillWongOT if you had concerns about the safety of driving would you talk to them? #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:21:56 +0000)
@allisulli @gilliancrossley this needs to be done with great sensitivity. It should involve more than OT/client. Clear communication. F/u #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:22:01 +0000)
@BillWongOT @clissa89 @pd2ot @clarewilding and for me, it would be sweaty palms and things that are heavy and need good grasp don’t mix either. #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:22:13 +0000)

@pd2ot @Helen_otuk alt ‘3’ I think? Maybe… #OTalk #(Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:23:14 +0000)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley I might note what I observe (using clinical observation skills- if applicable) and use motivational interviewing #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:23:34 +0000)
@clissa89 @pd2ot @helen_otuk yup πŸ™‚ #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:23:51 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @clarewilding yes there are def negatives. They are things I think about but the need to drive is always more important #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:23:57 +0000)
@BillWongOT @clarewilding @pd2ot @clissa89 well… with this technology age, sometimes ordering online is not a bad idea. #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:24:12 +0000)
@queenmullers @Cathy_OT @otalk_occhat yes i definately agree! Although sometimes you can overthink something which has an adverse effect #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:24:23 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @barryclift1 yes this is often what happens in my area of practice #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:24:38 +0000)
@BillWongOT @clarewilding @pd2ot @clissa89 But if it’s not applicable, it might be good to pay a friend or family member to do the task. #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:24:39 +0000)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT @pd2ot @clarewilding I order online sometimes, but delivery costs are getting increasingly expensive #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:24:46 +0000)
@OTSophie Driving for me is:habitual as it is part of my daily routine.It’s also time for reflection,concentration and mindfulness #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:25:01 +0000)
@BillWongOT @clarewilding @pd2ot @clissa89 That said, they still will have autonomy somewhat because they can come up with a shopping list. #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:25:06 +0000)
@pd2ot @clissa89 @BillWongOT @clarewilding I found waiting for delivery/letting strange person into flat stressful #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:25:30 +0000)

@BillWongOT @clissa89 @pd2ot @clarewilding I always do the math before hand. If it’s too expensive, then I would find ways to save money. #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:26:00 +0000)
@Cathy_OT @gilliancrossley Depends on what driving means to them. And if/how their difficulties could be overcome. Different for each client. #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:26:12 +0000)
@clissa89 @pd2ot @BillWongOT @clarewilding yes definitely… it’s becoming easier but still odd #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:26:43 +0000)

@Symbolic_Life @Cathy_OT @gilliancrossley especially OT it seems real important #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:27:09 +0000)

@pd2ot @clarewilding @Dai2584 @allisulli @otalk_occhat @leonoraot insurance for new drivers is often prohibitive, never mind car #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:27:24 +0000)
@clissa89 @clarewilding @billwongot @pd2ot currently, delivery for me can be about 1/4 of the cost of the shopping – adds up over a month #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:27:36 +0000)
@allisulli @clissa89 @billwongot @pd2ot @clarewilding Well, now a big gas-guzzling delivery truck is using the gas delivering it you, too. #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:27:55 +0000)
@BillWongOT @pd2ot @clissa89 @clarewilding that’s why I am thinking having someone u know to shop for u may sort of solve this problem. #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:28:03 +0000)
@gilliancrossley what about being a passenger? have you ever ensured you clients can access an adapted vehicle?so that they can have more independence #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:28:12 +0000)
@LeonoraOT @Cathy_OT @symbolic_life @gilliancrossley #Otalk Yes! Important to find ways & advocate for our colleagues who don’t drive(Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:28:16 +0000)
@pd2ot @clissa89 @clarewilding @billwongot I tended to do monthly ‘big shop’ delivered and top up fresh stuff on foot to compromise #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:28:22 +0000)
@clissa89 @BillWongOT @pd2ot @clarewilding I was fortunate to have a friend who gave me a lift to shop, made the shop itself more enjoyable #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:28:59 +0000)
@clarewilding @gilliancrossley #otalk agree, have to drive too as I’m rural, but we need to find new solutions. Prob for all to solve(Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:29:12 +0000)
@BillWongOT @pd2ot @clissa89 @clarewilding that’s a great strategy. You just got to figure out what’s work for you before hand #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:29:16 +0000)

@gilliancrossley @clarewilding we need other solutions. the prob for people who lose the ability to drive is that public trans has new set of problems #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:32:17 +0000)

@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @clarewilding At least it’s better than airport shuttles. It’s >= $50 per trip if I hire personal driver 1 way. 1/2 #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:38:25 +0000)
@OTalk_Occhat #OTalk MT @Sibellgul : yes also constant and demotivating battles with getting Benefits, adaptations. Bed sores in and out of hospitals +(Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:38:27 +0000)
@clarewilding @OTalk_Occhat #otalk more & better public transport, use tech, develop local communities, plan tasks(Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:38:35 +0000)
@Cathy_OT @gilliancrossley I find it extremely tiring. Especially in heavy traffic. And that can make me stressed. #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:38:51 +0000)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @clarewilding But with LAX Flyaway buses, it’s only $7 per one way trip. 2/2 #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:38:52 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @OTalk_Occhat @Sal_OTKnut this is difficult there are driver assessment services. there are dial a ride.. but can be costly #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:39:01 +0000)

@BillWongOT @Symbolic_Life @gilliancrossley you would walk 1/4 of 26.2 mile marathon if you walk from my home to HSC at USC. #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:39:50 +0000)
@OTalk_Occhat #OTalk MT @queenmullers : I have had clients open up to me about there past/currents concerns in the car when they feel they cant on the ward(Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:40:03 +0000)
@Cathy_OT @OTalk_Occhat Definitely. And it’s a more everyday setting than day a clinical room. Probably feels more natural. #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:40:08 +0000)
@OTalk_Occhat @pd2ot good point re protection of the person we are with #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:40:31 +0000)

@BillWongOT @pd2ot @OTalk_Occhat brings up another point- sometimes MH facilities transport their clients to community outings. #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:40:38 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @BillWongOT @Symbolic_Life i love to walk. before I started working was doing 10mile a day.. I miss it now I don’t have the time #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:40:51 +0000)

@clarewilding @gilliancrossley #otalk true, but public trans should b trans for all. OT needs to advocate this(Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:41:31 +0000)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @Symbolic_Life I bet you would love to walk if you are in my school situation then. πŸ™‚ #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:41:47 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @pd2ot @OTalk_Occhat yes thats a good point. talking in taxis can be an issue #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:41:51 +0000)

@Cathy_OT @gilliancrossley Oh yes. Snow driving is the worst. Especially as you can almost sense everyone else’s stress! Ha ha. #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:43:10 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @clarewilding yes, but more than just being accessible physically. timetables can be hard to understand. Fear of crowds, managing οΏ½ #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:43:22 +0000)

@clarewilding @gilliancrossley #otalk xcellent point, this is why OT needs to advocate-consider all barriers(Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:46:34 +0000)
@BillWongOT @otnotes @AOTAInc yup! That’s right! I got a chance to visit that as a student. NICE facility and program! #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:46:37 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @queenmullers me too. I feel it would put massive occupational limitations on me and my family #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:46:43 +0000)

@BillWongOT @queenmullers That’s true. And sometimes it’s easier to scramble for restrooms when you are driving than on public transit. #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:47:22 +0000)
@Sal_OTKnut @queenmullers #otalk well try taking a bus from home to work and then doing the job on public transport! Would drive you mad(Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:47:33 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @clarewilding totally agree! can’t see the UK’s public transport systems ever being good enough and barrier free #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:48:06 +0000)
@BillWongOT @Sal_OTKnut @queenmullers Some OT settings will be hard if you don’t drive. e.g. school based peds. #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:48:30 +0000)

@allisulli @clarewilding @otalk_occhat these are fine as long-term community-based objectives but not practical for individuals w real lives #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:49:31 +0000)

@queenmullers @Sal_OTKnut It would take me about 2hrs to travel to work on public transport, never mind working in the community #stress #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:50:44 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @allisulli @clarewilding @otalk_occhat I agree. lives are so busy that convenience wins..and driving is cheaper that public transport #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:51:11 +0000)
@OTalk_Occhat #OTalk MT @OTSophie : I find it peaceful driving in the sun and in my country areas.Not so much when drivers are rude or its snowing!(Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:51:37 +0000)
@BillWongOT @queenmullers @Sal_OTKnut Had that on my last placement. I would prefer that than being stuck on busy Beverly Hills traffic. #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:51:54 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @clarewilding no I know. The prob is buying in from the people in charge. but if it was better more would use.. more crowds etc. #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:52:17 +0000)
@allisulli @gilliancrossley @clarewilding @otalk_occhat as far as patient care is concerned, #telehealth is a great new option to cut driving #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:52:24 +0000)
@clarewilding @allisulli @otalk_occhat #otalk community is made of individuals with real lives, not sure I get your point?(Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:52:34 +0000)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @allisulli @clarewilding @OTalk_Occhat Not always. I think in HK, public transport wins over driving. #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:52:53 +0000)
@BillWongOT @gilliancrossley @allisulli @clarewilding @OTalk_Occhat An OT I would have met during my trip there said that he doesn’t have a car. #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:53:20 +0000)
@OTalk_Occhat @allisulli @gilliancrossley @clarewilding that’s a good point, I know of a #CFS / #ME service that uses #skype due to rural location #OTalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:53:29 +0000)
@gilliancrossley @OTSophie yes I love good scenery when driving! #otalk (Tue, 19 Feb 2013 20:54:06 +0000)
