Professional and tailored capacity building and rehabilitation services for adult individuals with neurological conditions including Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), Spinal Cord Injury (SCI), Parkinson’s, Multiple sclerosis and Huntington’s disease.

Optimal Living Therapy provides functional and cognitive rehabilitation services for adult individuals with a large range of neurological conditions. We are registered with NDIS to provide therapeutic supports and do so in a collaborative way that is tailored to each client and their goals.

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

Our Process

We set goals with a purpose and understand the motivation behind them
We celebrate every achievement
We focus on your abilities and strengths
We create a comfortable pace that challenges growth
We are committed to working with you to set and achieve your goals, connect you with your community and maximise your recovery. You can expect that our therapy and recommendations will be based on up to date and relevant research that is tailored to meet your rehabilitation needs.

 

What we will do:

  • Meet with you at your home to discuss your injury, what rehabilitation (if any) you’ve received so far and explore what goals are most important to you in your rehabilitation
  • 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 and help you achieve your goals
  • Work on areas of weakness you may have whilst optimizing your strengths to work towards achieving your goals
  • Facilitate your independence by working on strategies/techniques and equipment to help you complete tasks- and integrate these into your daily life
  • Equip you and everyone around you to support you and your rehabilitation goals everyday through education and training
