What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational Therapy is a health profession that promotes peoples’ quality of life, health and wellbeing through participation in the activities of everyday life.

Occupational Therapists work with people who have physical, cognitive or mental health conditions whose quality of life, health and wellbeing has been affected.

Occupational Therapists support people to participate in the occupations they want, need, or are expected to do:

  • Enhancing personal skills and abilities (e.g. learning new ways to manage anxious thoughts).

  • Modifying the environment (e.g. installing a ramp, adapting the role of a carer).

  • Adapting an occupation / task (e.g. redesigning the order of events for getting dressed).

Occupational Therapists see how the interaction between a person and their environment affects the way they participate in activities.

What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?

The NDIS is a government program supporting people under 65 years of age with a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to participate in everyday activities.

The NDIS works with people to identify and fund supports needed to live a good life. Supports may help people achieve goals in areas of life including independence, involvement in the community, education, employment, and health and wellbeing.

The NDIS gives people choice and control over how, when and where supports are provided, and gives people certainty that they will receive necessary support over their lifetime if needed.

Our Occupational Therapy services can often be funded through your NDIS Plan. Please contact us for more information.
