Optimal Living Therapy aims to create opportunities for people to live a connected and fulfilling life. We want to be a part of 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 is a registered NDIS provider for Occupational Therapy and Home modifications offering diverse services to adult individuals with a wide range of abilities. Our main area of expertise is neurological conditions such as  Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), Spinal Cord Injury (SCI), Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis and Huntington’s disease.

We support our clients to achieve their goals and live a connected and fulfilling life. We value open and honest communication within our service and are happy to discuss your situation specifically to help you determine if we are the best fit for you.

Another key area of expertise for our team is providing consultation, eligibility assessments and certifications for Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA).  SDA recognises the importance of the built environment in maximising an individual’s function.  Our therapy and home modification experience mean we have an intimate understanding of how participants utilise built environments and can consult accordingly.
