Miranda Blackstone-Cobbe

Senior Occupational Therapist

Miranda chose the career of Occupational Therapy having helped nurse her father through 30 years of Parkinsons Disease and supported her family with all the issues that arise when caring for a sick relative. She has a vast range of knowledge covering most medical conditions having worked in the NHS as a Senior Therapist for many years.

Miranda runs her own company called Home Sweet Home Reablement which, through the provision of equipment, rehabilitation and care, enables the elderly members of the population to remain in their own homes and live as independently as possible, for as long as possible.

Miranda prides herself on looking at the person, not the illness and always personalises any treatment plan to the individual, ensuring it works for them. Above all Miranda feels the most important qualification that she has achieved is the understanding of people and their needs, which she has gained through life experience and her work.
