Our team can provide specialised assessments and designs at a subsidised price, ensuring that your home modifications will meet your specific needs and increase your safety and independence in the home.

An Occupational Therapist is a qualified practitioner who aims to enable people  to participate in their daily activities, thereby promoting independence, safety and quality of life.

Everyday activities may include:

  • Getting in, out and around your home
  • Personal care (showering/dressing/toileting)
  • Domestic tasks (cooking/cleaning)
  • Getting in and out of bed/chairs

In order to increase your participation and independence with everyday activities, there are a number of assessments and interventions our Occupational Therapists can recommend which include:

  • Home modification assessments, e.g. hand rails, ramps, bathrooms, lifts
  • Assistive technology/equipment assessments, e.g. showering and toilet aids, wheelchairs, kitchen aids etc
  • Pressure care assessments, e.g. seating, wheelchairs and beds
  • Home safety, e.g. falls prevention and manual handling education
  • Providing education to clients, carers and significant others regarding health promotion, and increasing safety and participation in everyday activities
