About Us

Optimal Living Therapy is creating opportunities for everyone to live a connected and fulfilling life. We want to create a future where we can all connect in community spaces, thrive in our own homes and live amazing lives full of opportunities.

Optimal Living Therapy was founded to enable individuals who have had a change in health and/or ability to live as autonomously as possible in their home and engage with their community. Our experienced therapists are all registered with AHPRA and work closely with clients in their homes to achieve their goals.

Optimal Living Therapy is a registered NDIS provider for Occupational Therapy and Home Modifications. We offer assessments and rehabilitation services to adult individuals with neurological conditions such as Acquired Brain Injuries (ABI), Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI), Parkinson’s, Multiple sclerosis and Huntington disease. We help our clients achieve their goals and live a connected and fulfilling life.

We also provide consultation and certifications for Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) and our founder is an Accredited SDA Assessor. Our therapy and home modification experience mean we have an intimate understanding of how participants utilise built environments and can consult accordingly.
