Better Rehab Penrith’s skilled Occupational Therapists work with participants aged between six and 65 (as well as family and carers) to provide tailored Occupational Therapy to support you at home, at work and in the community. We support you in finding ways to enhance your day-to-day life and social connectivity.
We can help you make changes to your home so you can move around with greater ease, and prescribe assistive technology or devices. We can offer support if you are diagnosed with conditions such as mental illness or Autism Spectrum Disorder to help you meaningfully engage with activities that matter most to you.
At Better Rehab Penrith, we believe independence and mobility are key aspects of good health and wellbeing. So our skilled Physiotherapists help adults and children get the most out of life by providing a range of tailored and proven treatments and therapies.
They will help you improve your mobility, balance, movement, posture, strength, coordination and management of chronic conditions. In your home or in our Penrith clinic, we’ll thoroughly assess your abilities and work with you on a tailored Physiotherapy plan to help you achieve your goals.
Better Rehab Penrith’s Positive Behaviour Support Practitioners provide a person-centred approach to behaviour that is focused on improving quality of life and reducing behaviours of concern. We work closely with you and your family, carers and support networks (and with other service providers like your Occupational Therapist) to develop intervention plans and strategies that allow you to live your best life.
Our team can help prepare you for school, work or other social activities, assist in developing communication and social skills, and build your mental health, flexibility and resilience.
At Better Rehab Penrith, we understand that it can sometimes be difficult to receive support in person. Our Telehealth services give you access to the highest standards of expert care through simple, user-friendly technology. This means you can receive therapy or be assessed without the need for travel or physical contact.
At Better Rehab Penrith, our Speech Pathologists help adults and children who have difficulties or impairments in speech (articulation of sounds), receptive language (understanding language), expressive language (using language), social communication, voice, fluency (stuttering), literacy and swallowing.
We tailor therapy and support services to participants and their families, friends and carers, and prescribe Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) where necessary. Better Rehab Penrith’s Speech therapy services may benefit you if you have been diagnosed with a neurological condition, an intellectual or developmental delay or hearing impairment.
Better Rehab Penrith provides specialist support to infants, children and young people up to the age of 16. Our team of Occupational Therapists, Speech Pathologists, Physiotherapists and Behaviour Support Practitioners partner with you as the parent, carer or guardian to set meaningful goals (relating to home and school tasks, building relationships and friendships, and taking part in your local community) for your child’s development, and support you in helping them achieve those goals. If you are diagnosed with conditions such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, we can offer support and help you meaningfully engage with activities you enjoy.

Our therapists will work with you on identifying your needs based on your NDIS goals and plan. During this consultation you can choose how many hours of therapy you would like and how often you would like each type of therapy.
It is important we allocate time to write NDIS reports to:
• Ensure we can accurately monitor your progress against your goals
• Develop your applications for approval of items like home modifications or assistive technologies
• Support your plan reviews to ensure you receive the required amount of funding for your ongoing support
Our therapists will develop goals with you during your initial assessment. These goals may change over your plan period, based on your progress and priorities.
An NDIS plan is a document that outlines the individual’s goals for now or longer terms. It also includes their current level of independence, skills, and support needs.
The plan is developed in consultation with the individual, their family members or carers, and other professionals in the community who are involved in supporting them.
