Our allied health services ensure our residents have
comprehensive individual care plans focused on achieving optimum
health and wellbeing.
An occupational therapist visits our homes regularly, working with residents on optimising health, preventing injuries and achieving their highest level of independence possible. As well as individual assessments and therapies, an occupational therapist, together with a physiotherapist, coordinates activity programs.
Also visiting our homes regularly, a physiotherapist aims to maximise the quality of life of all our residents through movement and mobility. As part of this, regular exercise programs specially designed for residents are included in our activity calendars.
Residents also have access to a podiatrist, who specialises in the health of feet, ankles and lower limbs. A podiatrist works with residents to minimise pain or discomfort in these areas as well as to assess and treat specific foot conditions.
Our dietician ensures that all our residents' unique nutritional needs are met and that our meals remain well balanced. They provide recommendations that take into account individual requirements and factors such as weight.
A speech pathologist is also available to assess residents who are experiencing difficulties with eating and provide recommendations for their individual needs.
We arrange other health specialists for our residents as required, including dental and optical services.
