OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY Services
Functional capacity assessment
A thorough assessment and report about the impact of your condition/ disability on the achievement of your goals, recommendations for assistive technology, complex formal support table outlining in specific detail the formal support hours (e.g. SIL) you require in 24 hours over the course of the week, therapy and housing recommendations.
The OT written report also includes an AMPS assessment, which provides concrete evidence into why you may require support for certain activities and processes throughout your day.
Complex Home modifications
We boast 4 accredited ‘home mods qualified’ OT’s in CPPACC5016 CPPACC4020 who are expertly equipped in making your home more accessible to achieve a more independent form of living.
Assistive technology ‘AT’ scripting
We work with local suppliers to script a broad range of equipment from simple low/cost low/risk AT to custom scripted wheelchairs, custom made hoist slings and many items in between!
SDA and housing eligibility assessments
Our OT’s can undertake a comprehensive housing needs assessment to provide evidence into whether you are SDA eligible and what the most appropriate housing option may be for your situation if your current housing circumstances are no longer appropriate.
In home therapy
Our occupational therapists can come to you in your home, workplace, day option venue – or a place in the community to provide you with capacity building therapies.
We may be assisting you to develop or re-learn skills, reintegrate you into your home or local community after a change in circumstance or simply work towards independence at the everyday skills in life.
Our scope although is largely based with those who require physical supports, also includes specialty services to support neurological, CNS (brain/ spinal) needs, amputees and those with psychosocial support needs.
Our level 2 therapy assistants are in their 3rd or 4th year in their relevant degree (physiotherapy/ OT) or hold a Certificate 4 in Allied Health Assistance and work under the direct direction of the treating therapist in between your therapy sessions.
With their higher level of skill, therapy assistants can provide a more tailored approach for more complex support needs than what might otherwise be provided by a support worker following a therapy plan.
