Occupational Therapists work with their clients to help them overcome physical, emotional and social challenges. They enable them to return to the activities they enjoy and bring meaning to their lives.
Our mobile occupational therapy services in Sydney are designed to meet the needs of individuals who are unable to attend traditional therapy sessions due to mobility or transportation issues or require assessments in their home for home modifications, assistive technology or other equipment. We bring our services to you, wherever you may be. This could be in your home, workplace, or even in a community setting.
Our Occupational Therapists provide assessment, education and intervention to facilitate their client’s independence and improve their quality of life. They provide a positive impact by increasing independence, increasing the range of movement and functionality of arms and hands, enhancing strength and endurance in everyday activities and enhancing memory and cognitive skills.
Occupational therapists help older adults to choose and use specialised equipment like wheelchairs, mobility scooters and walking aids to assist their clients to move around their homes and other environments. Occupational therapists can also help adapt their client’s homes to accommodate their individual needs. They can make recommendations to install rails or ramps in their client’s homes to better facilitate safe mobility. Empowering their clients to complete everyday tasks using these aids will boost their confidence and improve their well-being.
A physiotherapist will focus on treating a client’s injury and working to improve his/her ability to perform movement of the human body. Physiotherapy focuses on improving physical measures such as joint range of movement, muscle strength and endurance. Meanwhile, occupational therapy focuses on assisting a person to improve their ability to perform regular daily activities independently, following or during a period of physical impairment.
Occupational therapy is great for those who are unable to take care of themselves, move easily, or perform a normal function in their home or work environment because of illness, pain, injury, or disability. For older adults or those with disabilities, this could include activities like getting dressed, cooking, and driving.
With growing care needs and social isolation, our community is in greater need of high quality healthcare now more than ever.
