Every source of funding, whether private or public, has a different process. Get in touch with us today and we can help you through the referral process. This can include (but is not exclusive to) the Insurance Commission of Western Australia, NDIS, home care packages, Department of Veteran affairs.
We primarily work with adolescents and adults above the age of 16 however our services such as complex home modifications, home automation and access consulting are applicable to people of all ages.
We have extensive experience working with clients that have an Aquired Brain Injury or Spinal Cord Injury, however we are able to provide many of our services to individuals with a range of other diagnoses.
We offer mobile services to our clients across Western Australia. Our rehabilitation services are provided within the wider Perth Metro area due to the need for frequent contact. Travel costs may be incurred however they will be evaluated on a case to case basis.
We are able to provide clinical education to formal and informal support networks of clients in relation to the services we provide, for example use of equipment, home automation, positioning and pressure care. We encourage the clients daily network to be involved in the ongoing rehabilitation process outside of our therapy sessions.
We are often contacted by carers or participants wishing to access funding in the NDIS, about whether a functional capacity assessment conducted by an OT is required as part of their application.
During the assessment of your access request, the NDIS will evaluate evidence of your disability, which may be provided via assessments or reports from a health professional. A Functional Capacity Assessment is not compulsory at all.
Optimal Living Therapy offers mobile services to our clients who live in the Perth Metro area and surrounding suburbs. Coming to your home, workplace or community means we can work together in places you interact with on a daily basis, creating opportunities to connect with familiar environments better.
