dc.description.abstract The metaphor of weaving and the methodology of phenomenology are used to expose eight ordinary people’s lived experience of receiving client-centred occupational therapy at home. This qualitative study reveals the themes of Thread, Weave and Texture interlocking to create the phenomenological structure of the lived experience. The two threads of being acknowledged and being respected are used with the five weaves of listening, taking time, demonstrating, having knowledge, and projecting a positive attitude, building four simple textures. The four textures -- having opportunity for choice, receiving support, getting information, and being cared about -- blended to form the participants’ lived experience. Their stories have inspired me to weave a tapestry of words, something that in its beauty celebrates the delivery of client-centred occupational therapy but also teaches these principles. en
