We are a highly experienced team that prefers to work with our clients at their home, workplace or community where they feel comfortable.

As experts in cognition and function our occupational therapists can work with you to assess what cognitive domains need rehabilitation in order to help maximise your recovery, and by coupling this with functional rehabilitation we can work with you to achieve your goals.

Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) Rehabilitation

Occupational Therapy plays a pivotal role in rehabilitation following an acquired brain injury. As experts in cognition and function our occupational therapists can work with you to assess what cognitive domains need rehabilitation in order to help maximise your recovery, and by coupling this with functional rehabilitation we can work with you to achieve your goals.

Our Senior Therapists have extensive experience in ABI and have been working alongside clients in cognitive rehabilitation for years, helping them progress in their rehabilitation with confidence and success. 

Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Rehabilitation

Experiencing a life changing spinal cord injury can be terrifying and often means having to change the way you do everything in your day to day life. Transitioning back into your life after your injury you will have many goals you want to achieve in your rehabilitation, and whether your goals are related to your daily life, hobbies or career we can work with you to create a goal orientated rehabilitation program.

Our Therapists have extensive experience in SCI rehabilitation and aim to maximise results.

  • Assess and recommend any equipment or modifications you might need to get back home, or function better within it (eg: wheelchair, seating systems, pressure care, ramp, bathroom, kitchen)
  • Advise you on home/assistive technologies available that may increase your independence of help you achieve your goals
  • Work on areas of weakness you may have whilst optimizing your strengths to work towards achieving your goals
