Our Busselton based Occupational Therapist Jessica Mahon can 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. Jessica provides small free information and advice sessions throughout the south west to demonstrate equipment and assistive technology to promote independence in the home and community.
Jessica can also complete assessments in your home or in the community to help you to determine the best equipment, technology or home modification options for you. These services may attract a fee. Jessica 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 (and many more!).
As a registered provider for the National Disability Insurance Scheme, Jessica is able to provide services to people who are eligible to participate in the WA NDIS trial in the Lower South West. Jessica shares the ILC Country South West Portfolio with Nicole De Faria who comes to the South West with the Caravan twice per year.
Nicole is looking forward to bringing the ILC Caravan to the South West from April 3rd to April 7th. The trip will begin in Manjimup for an expo held at the Manjimup Shire Hall on April 3rd, and visit surrounding areas. Another trip is anticipated to Augusta and surroundings for November 2017. Expressions of interest are still open for both the April and November Caravan trips.
If you have a query on assistive technology you would like to learn more about, please don’t hesitate to contact me on 1300 885 886 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and I can investigate further and potentially arrange to meet during the upcoming trip or at another time with Jessica.
