Helen achieves her independence goals with assistive equipment

On meeting Helen, ILC Occupational Therapist Alison Senior said it was clear from the start that Helen is a “super independent” lady.

“Helen’s main goal was to continue accessing the community and to complete tasks such as shopping and attending art classes independently,” said Alison.

“I assessed Helen for a mobility scooter and then applied for funding through WA NDIS”.

“The funding application was successful and Helen was provided with a mobility scooter that can also be transported easily in the back of her car, allowing her to get out and about whenever she wants. This has made a big difference to Helen’s life,” she said.
