Our team members include experienced occupational therapists and speech pathologists who have specialised knowledge about assistive equipment, technology and home modifications to help people to do everyday things and achieve their goals.
Our therapists can provide you with a comprehensive service including an assessment in your home, at your school or in the community to help you to determine the best 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, we can help with this process too.
Following this our therapists can prescribe equipment and support you to hire, trial and obtain it.
Importantly, to give you confidence to use your equipment or technology, we can assist you to set it up and can train you in how best to use it.
