In 2015 the ILC established a base in Busselton to better service people living in the Lower South West region of Western Australia.
Our Busselton based Occupational Therapist Simone Robinson can assist you with all of your assistive equipment and home modification needs.
Simone can provide an assessment in your home or in the community to help you to determine the best equipment, technology or home modification options for you.
This may include an assessment for a wheelchair, seating or other daily living equipment. Or if changes to your home are required, such as a ramp or rail, or different access for a wheelchair or mobility device, Simone can help with this process too.
Following this Simone can prescribe equipment and support you to hire, trial and obtain it.
Importantly, to give you confidence to use your equipment, Simone can assist you to set it up and can train you in how best to use it.
Simone is currently providing a service to people who live throughout the whole South West region including the towns of Augusta, Balingup, Busselton, Boyup Brook, Bridgetown, Donnybrook, Dunsborough, Manjimup, Margaret River and Nannup.
As a registered provider for the National Disability Insurance Scheme, the ILC is able to provide services to people who are eligible to participate in the WA NDIS trial in the Lower South West.
The ILC is also able to provide information, advice, assessment, prescription, training and support services for assistive equipment for people of all ages and abilities living in the Lower South West. These services may attract a fee.
