Now you can benefit from the experience and expertise of the very best therapists, in the comfort of your own home, and often for no more than it would cost to visit one at their clinic.
Exercise programs and equipment are tailored to your home environment. Treatments can be based on daily tasks, so be more meaningful to you, plus we can see the problems you are facing first hand.
Our whole focus is on you remaining as independent as possible making staying in your home more of a reality.
We can even supply an experienced and friendly trades person who can come and fit equipment for you.
All of our therapists are chosen for their empathy, patience, understanding, and excellent communication with a friendly approach . They have a genuine interest in your progress and well being.
Our one aim is to restore your mobility and aid your recovery, giving you back the active life you had before. We will do everything in our power to ensure this happens as quickly as possible.
Within days of your first enquiry our therapist will visit you at home to discuss and prepare a care plan that will explain exactly what your course of treatment will consist of.
If appropriate, this will also include suggested exercises you can do on your own, and guidance for your family or carers on your care requirements between our visits.
Our goal is to help you you relearn the skills needed for daily tasks like cooking, showering or getting dressed. We will also recommend equipment and suggest ways to make your home environment safer and more accessible.
If you require a prescription to use your NDIS funding for this equipment or modifications we can do that too.
If you are a resident in a retirement village or care home we can still help you. In fact we already visit residents in many of the care homes throughout the area so it’s possible we are helping one of your friends.
While we mostly cover the Adelaide Hills we also have patients in many of the regional townships and more remote areas.
Our patients are as young as 2 weeks or 90 years and anything in between. Occupational Therapy can assist both the physical and mental development of children.
Injuries from falls or accidents can occur to anyone at any age, and of course the right treatments can ensure you stay active and able to look after yourself, in your own home, for as long as possible.
While you don’t need a referral from your doctor for us to see you (unless you are a DVA client) many of our patients come to us that way.
Either way we will be in constant communication with your doctor to ensure they are aware of the treatment you are receiving from us, and the progress you are making.
Funding can be available to you through your GP. For example, if you have a condition which is considered to be chronic you may be eligible for up to 6 sessions of OT and podiatry a year.
If you are a DVA card holder, depending on the type of card you hold, you could have access to unlimited physiotherapy for as long as it is clincally indicated.
If you would like more information about these funding options or to find out if they may apply to you, please ask your GP to send us a referral. Alternatively call us and we will explain, and help you work, through the process.
