Interdisciplinary Rehabilitation Program

Consultation Service/Telerehab

 

A consultation service is offered, that includes single discipline or multi-discipline assessments and reports. Inter-professional assessments for a client’s care needs and community care plans are also available. For clients living in regional areas, our clinicians have access to telerehab via Skype.

 

Hospital to Home Transfer

 

We can facilitate the transition from hospital to home or supported accommodation. The living environment will be assessed for any required modifications and equipment is prescribed as required. We also organise carers and assist in their training specific to your needs.

 

Carer Training

 

We can work with your personal carers or assist in the organisation of new carers. We train carers for care needs such as transfers, positioning, selfcare and feeding. We can also work with families and carers to set up therapy and exercise programs that can be scheduled into daily routines.

 

Positive Behaviour Support

 

We offer a team of professionals experienced in implementing positive behaviour support plans to help with this complex area. The team works together to comprehensively assess the behaviors of concern, their functions, and causes. A plan would be developed with all involved, which would integrate the principles of positive behaviour support to address the individual needs of the client and their situation.
