The goal of our therapeutic supports is to help you apply your skills to daily activities so that you can achieve independence and accomplish your personal goals. With the help of therapeutic supports, you can fulfill your potential in areas like personal care, communication, mobility, community engagement, exercise, language, eating, and social interactions.
Occupational Therapists (OTs) aim to support you to be as independent as possible so you can start or continue the occupations of everyday life that are meaningful to you. Occupations of everyday life include:
- Activities of daily living: Self-care such as showering, grooming and eating
- Household & community functioning: Home maintenance, driving, budgeting, shopping and community mobility
- Education: Activities to enable effective participation in a learning environment
- Leisure and play
- Social participation: Interacting positively with others in the community
- Work (paid and unpaid): Participating in employment and volunteer activities.
- Guidance with Assistive Technology (aids & equipment) and Home modifications
- Assessment of personal support needs (personal care)
- Housing assessments for participants who need Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) or
Supported Independent Living (SIL) Accommodation
- Transport assistance
- Orientation and mobility training
- Rehabilitation for social participation
The OTs here at PCCS are fully qualified experts in physical and mental health, disability and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
