Occupational Therapy

Promoting Independence with Therapy

 

Occupational therapists, often referred to as OTs, specialise in helping people with cognitive or physical disabilities to live as independently as possible in all areas of their lives. Here at AHP, our NDIS registered OTs act in advisory or consultative roles to manage and modify the daily activities of disabled people so as to promote independence and self-care. They work closely with participants to design a treatment plan and make recommendations to safely accomplish their individual objectives by identifying factors that may negatively affect their daily routine.

The aim of our occupational therapy services is to ensure that disabled people successfully adapt to changes in their everyday lives and safely overcome practical problems in their condition. Our occupational therapists have the expert knowledge needed to achieve this and will work collaboratively with the participant to learn about the individual and home tasks they find very difficult to accomplish. They will then ultimately prescribe ways to help the participant accomplish these tasks in a safer, easier and timely manner. This facilitates a feeling of accomplishment, thereby enhancing self-confidence.

AHP’s occupational therapists assist disabled people with personalised evaluations and recommendations in practical tasks and daily activities, including:

  • Recommending modifications to the participant’s home
  • Assessment of disability equipment needs
  • Workplace adaptations
  • Paediatric services
  • Rehabilitation and more

The AHP Difference

Walter de Ruyter

The management of mobility and amelioration of pain through massage and movement is an essential part of ensuring the wellbeing of our residents. Working in partnership with Australian Health Professionals has changed the way we use 4B funding for the better physical and mental health of residents, while reducing the risk of injury to staff. It is a pleasure to recommend Australian Health Professionals who work collaboratively with staff or ensure excellent care and revenue optimization.

We have partnered with Australian Health Professionals for a range of permanent and temporary recruitment assignments; particularly those which are hard to fill or critical to our organisation.

We have found Anne and the team very responsive, flexible, customer centric and committed to sourcing in line with our brief. When we find it challenging to source, we do look to AHP to provide support with candidate acquisition.

Our physiotherapy program was implemented by AHP in 2015. Our residents have been given the opportunity to improve their mobility and well-being and equally importantly to learn that physio and activities programs are fun. The improvement in the activity levels of our residents has been fantastic. Another positive aspect of employing AHP is their knowledge of the ACFI system and how physiotherapy services can contribute to an increase in the revenue of an aged care service. Marco Polo is a strong supporter of AHP - as evidenced by the fact that we now have 5 full time allied health staff working across our two facilities - a resource our residents welcome because they feel better because of it.
