OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

Occupational Therapists are AHPRA registered health professionals, trained to improve clients’ independence and function, in all activities of their daily life. Our caring Occupational Therapists (in Cairns and Cooktown) are committed to maximising every individual’s ability to be as independent as possible, in their everyday lives. Home assessments can be arranged, which allow us to complete a thorough review of your circumstances and property, then provide advice on the specific aids, devices and technology, which might enhance your ability to complete daily tasks with renewed confidence and capacity.

ASSESSMENT & TREATMENT

Our OT works with clients of all ages, who are either in recovery from an accident or have physical impairments from conditions such as: Parkinson’s Disease, Functional Neurological Disorders, Stroke, Cerebral Palsy, Developmental Delay, Post Operative, Chronic Disease and Autism. Occupational therapy Cairns and Cooktown assessments can be completed for the purpose of obtaining assistive technology from NDIS, as well as performing home modifications or obtaining aids to support everyday tasks. Advice and treatment is focussed on enhancing health and wellbeing around the house and in community. Appointments can be booked by phoning 07 4231 9777 or ndis@wellnessembodiedcairns.com

REHABILITATION

At Wellness Embodied we always take a holistic, client centred approach to treatment, focussing on the person not the symptom. At our Cairns Complete Concussions Clinic and through our work with NDIS clients, we see a range of people struggling with memory issues, focus, concentration and mood disturbances. Our Occupational Therapists work with these clients, helping them achieve their goals and making their day to day functioning, easier. Our OT rehabilitation services include but are not limited to, assessments, coaching and advice on items such as planning, executive functioning and cognitive retraining.

They have great physios, who get to know you as a person, not just your illness. They also do nice little personal touches, like sending you a birthday message or checking in via text to see you're ok after a treatment.
