#Otalk, so this is my first time hosting, so please excuse any hiccups. First question for tonight, Question 1: What setting are you in and have you given a direct payment to any of your service users/carers?
#HelloMyNameIs Carolyn @CeeCeeOT
@sherlynmelody @OTalk_ I'm armed with recent training and fresh understanding of #directpayments. Looking forward to #OTalk! How's you?

@sherlynmelody Hello! Great topic. I work for ASC in reablement service. I have recommended people look into direct payments but it still seems to be the SWs who do this. I need to educate myself more on this topic. #otalk

@sherlynmelody I am in skilled nursing facilities in the USA. Very small % of patients are in there via private pay. After all, rates for a spot is already expensive! #otalk

@sherlynmelody I heard nursing homes in my neck of the woods cost up to about $5000 USD a month. This can add up if you are a long term resident at these things. #otalk
💚🇯🇲 𝕊𝕙𝕖𝕣𝕝𝕪𝕟 🇬🇧💚 @sherlynmelody
@janetregan3 @OTalk_ #otalk thats good to know. Maybe there will be some questions here for you to answer.
Rachel Chilvers @RChilversOT
@CeeCeeOT @sherlynmelody And my first time joining in to #otalk, @sherlynmelody! I have occasionally used DPs for equipment in adult social care
Sarah Pender @louswaiting
@sherlynmelody @otfrancesca #OTalk we do recommend items for people to purchase and if they are unable to purchase these we would consider a direct payment
CatherineGreenlaw @c__greenlaw
@sherlynmelody @otfrancesca @louswaiting I see Direct Payments as agreat bit of kit in our OT tool box to enable meaningful occupations #OTalk
Hayley OT @hayleyot1
@sherlynmelody @OTalk_ I work in forensic mental health inpatient services. We’ve recently learn more about supporting service users with what they can access personalised budgets for around discharge (not necessarily always direct payments) #oTalk

@sherlynmelody Parents would use payments to aid towards equipment, care for the child or ability to complete meaningful occupations with any support required. #otalk
💚🇯🇲 𝕊𝕙𝕖𝕣𝕝𝕪𝕟 🇬🇧💚 @sherlynmelody
@BillWongOT #otalk so are you saying that you local government offices (I don't know how you refer to them in USA) would provide money/direct payment for them to engage in meaningful activities - in or out of the nursing home?
Fran @otfrancesca
@CeeCeeOT @louswaiting @sherlynmelody Same here. I don't really hear of it being used in other ways in my workplace and this is why I wanted to join in tonight to educate myself and start up discussions with my colleagues and get better at seeing this as a tool in my kit #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
If it were from a service user's perspective, I could have conceivably pay for the cost of private practice OT if I still needed OT but my insurance doesn't provide good coverage. #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@sherlynmelody in my setting- private pay means that these patients and/or their families would pay the costs out of their pockets. #otalk
Chloe Dickson @ChloeDicksonOT
@BillWongOT @sherlynmelody Does the local government provide direct payments to assist with the living costs in the home? #otalk
Amanda White @ajciliaOT
@sherlynmelody Q1.#otalk I currently work in acute hospital. I have only related to direct payments when I worked in community learning disabilities team. But the applications were driven by SW
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@ChloeDicksonOT @sherlynmelody if patients are on insurance (public or private), that will assist them costwise living in these nursing homes. #otalk
Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@sherlynmelody To be honest I know very little about it. What is the eligibility/criteria for DP? There are some equipment I.e. sensory equipment that are not provided by the NHS so would love to hear if DP can be used for this #OTalk
💚🇯🇲 𝕊𝕙𝕖𝕣𝕝𝕪𝕟 🇬🇧💚 @sherlynmelody
@otfrancesca @CeeCeeOT @louswaiting #otalk Yes Fran, thats part of the reason I have chosen this topic so we can all share how DP's are being used. hopefully we will get more responses 😉
#OTalk @OTalk_
Interesting. Anyone can apply for a care assessment by their local authorities and if funded services are needed I believe a direct payment can be requested. #otalk
💚🇯🇲 𝕊𝕙𝕖𝕣𝕝𝕪𝕟 🇬🇧💚 @sherlynmelody

Question 3) #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT

Janet @janetregan3
@sherlynmelody #OTalk I think DPs are great, but they do require a lot of time, effort, skills and resources to manage. This can mean that a fair few support hours get used up on support with managing the DP, which I am not sure is always accounted for when working out care packages.
Nikki Helme @HelmeNikki
@sherlynmelody Lack of personal assistants that are suitable for supporting people, I’ve had several PA’s but non of them are skilled or qualified. Maybe my standards are high but it is the biggest barrier to me #otalk

Question 5) #otalk
Sarah Pender @louswaiting
#OTalk what would happen if you had a PA that took on several service users with their DPs , would that then be a unregulated care agency?
#OTalk @OTalk_
@sherlynmelody Less rigid care packages. Less living by the times your care agency provides, more choice in how to achieve your goals #otalk

CatherineGreenlaw @c__greenlaw
@sherlynmelody The main barrier and facilitator is our creativity which is hard i a busy environment but key to enabling occupations. DPs should be the starting assumption and yraditional care the last option #OTalk
Rachel Chilvers @RChilversOT
@sherlynmelody @leo @LeonardCheshire Yes, there is support for service users to manage their DP. Sometimes the idea is still too overwhelming, but the main thing as that people are given the choice - DP or commissioned services, which ever works best for them #otalk
YarnPaw @YarnPaw

@SusanGriffiths5 #otalk it would appear a DP can be used for anything as long as it meets their care and support needs. Eligibility would be based on the care act as well as local authority discretion??

@ajciliaOT #otalk as a case manager I am expected to promote DP's I have done a one off direct payment for a minor adaptation to a home. its rare I have the opportunity to provide a DP for a package of care as I go in after the package is in place. I guess DP's can be more creative 4 OT's

@HelmeNikki #otalk well if a DP gives people choice and control then I guess your standards are allowed to be high?? if your needs are to be met safely! PA's in the position of caring for/supporting others need to be skilled/trained at least.

@OTalk_ @otfrancesca Youd think, however many years of taking part, I would remember by now!I went to the cinema which I think confused me! #OTalk

@emmaspellmanOT @HelmeNikki #otalk it would be good to get PA's perspectives in this area! I have seen PA's doing things like lifting people and putting themselves at risk, I think it happens because they feel they owe it to who they are supporting. But I know care agency staff do the same too.

@OTSophie @HelmeNikki #otalk surely they should be bound by the same legislation especially if we are providing the direct payment to meet the needs as quoted in the 'care act'...right??
OT Sophie @OTSophie
@sherlynmelody @HelmeNikki Exactly. I guess that's where usual processes for quality issues come in to play #OTalk

@PenelopeFirshma @emmaspellmanOT @HelmeNikki #otalk I think recruitment in this area is a struggle, as well as retention, staff turnover etc, Pay rises would be good, would that be enough to attract the right characters and keep them?

@sherlynmelody Thank you! I hope your first #OTalk went well.

@OTSophie @andreaMwill #otalk I think you can offer one off payments, I'm not sure if these amounts vary from one local authority(LA) to the next. but if it is assessed as a need, then I guess it should be provided. LA budgets may impact ones ability to prescribe/offer???

@sherlynmelody @andreaMwill We do this as a non standard equipment order (still free), wondering at what point u would decide between those. A question I will ask! #OTalk

@sherlynmelody Q4. Lack of access and monitoring around training EG. Formal moving and handling training not accessed and lack of opportunity to access such training in local area. Concerns around accountability when such PAs don't have adequate training #OTalk
