Occupational Therapy strives to assist an individual to reach their chosen level of independence. This includes support for the relief from pain, the chance for healthy development and a safe environment. The role of an occupational therapist is to help reduce the effects of an impairment to an individual and hence enable them to a lifestyle of their choice. Examples of ways in which occupational therapists aim to reach this goal include: -- Home Assessment - to increase the level of safety and optimise independence. -- Provision of aids and equipment such as: -- shower chair/stool -- over toilet frame -- toilet surrounds -- commode chairs -- bath boards -- wheelchairs -- rails -- ramps -- Splinting - to decrease the level of pain and increase ability to carry out tasks. -- Paediatrics - assessment of and intervention with young children including areas such as gross/fine motor development, visual perception, etc. -- General Rehabilitation - this involves follow up visits after discharge from hospital where a continuing disability is evident. This includes rehabilitation following heart attack, strokes, surgery etc. -- Mental Health - intervention focused on improving social and emotional well-being when issues such as mental illness and social isolation impact on daily living. HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? * $6.50 for Healthcare Card holders and * $10.00 for non-card holders If you are experiencing and difficulty with these costs please speak to the Occupational Therapist. Contact Our Occuptaional Therapist, Kerry Harrower, who can provide support and advice to aged and disabled persons to improve their ability to cope in the home. s
