What is Occupational Therapy?
An Occupational Therapist (OT) is an Allied Health Professional who will work with individuals to help them to maximize their independence and engage in the activities that are meaningful to them.
Our OT’s will seek to understand you and what is important to you so that they can assist you to achieve your goals whether at home, work or in the community. They will only be supporting people with MND so that they can provide a specialist service that recognizes that everybody’s journey is an individual one and take into consideration future needs as well as immediate ones.
How can MNDAWA’s Occupational Therapists help?
Our OT’s can assist with a range of needs including:
- NDIS access request/Pre-planning
- Functional (ADL) Assessments
- Assistive Technology and mobility equipment (Including set up and training)
- Carer support/education
Who can access Occupational Therapy from MNDAWA?
MNDAWA’s OT services are available to anyone with MND in or around the Perth area. We will explore the option of regional visits in the near future if our clients request this support.
There is a cost associated with the service and this is usually met through NDIS funding or a Home Care Package (through My Aged Care).
