Home Modifications

Our Occupational Therapists work closely with a network of carefully selected, experienced builders on customised solutions to improve the safety, layout and function of your home. As home modification experts, we will come and assess your home and prescribe solutions to optimise your independence in daily activities. This could be as simple as a grab rail for getting in and out of the shower or more extensive alterations like ramps and lifts.

Activities of Daily Living and Capacity Building

Activities of daily living assessments and therapy are at the heart of everything we do. We take the time to get to know you and your family to understand your abilities, challenges and goals. Together, we will find ways to help you become independent with daily activities, from simple self-care tasks such as showering and dressing, to more complex activities such as moving around the community or going to work.

Sensory Assessments

Your senses play a vital role in how you interact with the world, so if you are under- or over-sensitive in relation to any of your senses, this can seriously affect your interactions with your environment and the people around you. Our Occupational Therapists can assess the functioning of all your seven senses – sight, hearing, smell, touch, taste, balance, movement – and understand the way you interact with your environment.

Autism Spectrum Disorder Support

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can cause challenges to how a person thinks, feels or interacts with other people and their environment. Our Occupational Therapists can offer support to people with ASD by assessing their level of ability and devising strategies to help them more fully participate in the community. This includes strategies that develop daily living skills such as independent self-care, spatial awareness and social interactions, as well as vocational skills such as problem-solving and accepting criticism. These are skills that can be of benefit in the various contexts of daily life, from leisure activities to employment.

Mental Health Support

Taking care of our mood, thinking and behaviour is just as important as taking care of our physical health. Poor mental health can affect how we relate to other people and how we go about our daily lives. Our Occupational Therapists can provide support if you are suffering from mild to severe mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety disorder and trauma-related disorders, helping you meaningfully engage with the activities that matter to you the most. Our OTs will assist you by designing strategies that aim to improve your self-esteem and promote independent living. The approach will always focus on your goals and values.
