Skill Building

We provide people-centred rehabilitation services for people following a medical illness, neurological disorder, disability, illness or injury & which may impact on their ability to complete activities or occupations around the home or in the community. 

 

Our Occupational Therapists are experienced in remediation, neuro-rehab and capacity skill building/ retraining & work with people to overcome limitations experienced as a result of their condition.

 

Our rehabilitation services aim to maximise participation in chosen daily activities such as grocery shopping, dressing, community mobility or succeeding in work/ studies. Interventions are goal directed working towards client and family centred outcomes.


After making a thorough assessment to establish any motor, sensory, cognitive, psychological or social limitations, our therapists will set realistic client-centred goals with you.

 

A tailor-made remediation program is developed to enable the individuals to achieve their goals.

 

The therapy is practical in nature and takes place wherever would be most useful to integrate therapy into everyday life (we can come to you, or provider the sessions via telehealth).

 

To maximise the success of the rehabilitation program, it is also important to involve family and carers to tailor a program that can be integrated into the persons day to day routines.

 

The emphasis is on using existing skills, developing/ improving abilities and using compensation strategies where appropriate.

Interventions may include advice and training in the use of adaptive equipment and techniques to manage everyday tasks. If cognitive changes are experienced we can develop programs around planning, organisational and memory strategies to enable a person to become more independent in day to day tasks.

 

We can also provide education and advice on how to cope with physical and psychological effects of a condition.

How telehealth benefits you

No need to waste time travelling to the Provider for something that can be simply diagnosed and treated online

Clinics, medical centres and hospitals are typically where known pathogens and germs can spread. By having an online consultation, you are avoiding the possibility of this transmission.

By having a consultation from the privacy of your home or your preferred location, you can feel more comfortable discussing sensitive topics.

Doctors often advise use to rest in bed, and that’s where you can now see the doctor from. By not needing to travel and spend hours on the go, you’re likely to recover a lot quicker.

Using our technology platform, we aim to have day-round coverage of providers available to consult with you at a suitable time, as soon as possible.

Old or young, anyone can use our platform to access healthcare – anytime, anywhere. Parents are able to book a consultation on behalf of their children or elderly.
