At Better Rehab, we understand the challenges that people with mobility or communication difficulties face every day. For this reason, we set up our NDIS Allied Health Practice in Brisbane to provide accessible support for people of all ages.
Whatever your medical background, we know how important it is for you to maintain your independence. We provide a number of therapy and assessment services to help you carry out everyday tasks in your own home, and we can also prescribe assistive technology and home modifications where necessary.
Occupational therapy is a process of assessment and rehabilitation that helps our clients in Brisbane to live their daily lives in safety and comfort, often after a reduction in mobility due to illness, injury, or old age.
Our occupational therapists will work with you to assess what assistance you need for tasks such as walking, showering and dressing. In some cases, we can make these tasks easier through physical therapy, or we may prescribe home modifications such as shower rails, or mobility aids such as a wheelchair.
We can also assess your daily living needs and explore alternative housing options such as Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) and Supported Independent Living (SIL).
Speech Pathology in Brisbane
If you’re looking for a speech pathologist in Brisbane, give the team at Better Rehab a call. Our trained therapists work with children and adults who have communication difficulties due to a speech or language impairment, or who have trouble swallowing.
If you or a family member has been diagnosed with a neurological condition, developmental delay, or hearing impairment, get in touch to arrange an assessment. Our speech therapists can put together a customised program to help you communicate more effectively, and prescribe assistive technology if necessary.
We also carry out swallowing assessments for people who are having trouble at mealtimes or have other symptoms of dysphagia (difficulty swallowing). We can advise on diet modifications, or refer to a specialist if necessary.
Physiotherapy in Brisbane
Limited mobility can make even simple everyday tasks such as navigating your home or using the bathroom a frustrating and arduous task. If you’re recovering from illness or injury that has affected your muscle strength, coordination, balance, or flexibility, we can provide a customised exercise program to help you regain your confidence and independence.
Whether your mobility has been declining gradually, or you’ve suffered an accident or stroke, we can assess what sort of help you need, and provide therapy, mobility aids, and pain management strategies to assist you. Our physiotherapists can also provide advice about preventing falls, and carry out risk assessments in the home to identify any potential hazards.
Driving Assessments in Brisbane
Driving is a valuable skill, but it’s vital for both your own safety and that of others on the road that you’re physically and cognitively capable of driving a vehicle safely.
If you’re suffering from a medical condition or accident that may have impaired your ability to drive, our on and off-road assessments will make sure that you can manage a car safely.
We also provide driver retraining for those who are in rehabilitation after an illness or injury, and we will assess whether your car is ergonomically suitable for you to drive. If not, we can suggest modifications to make driving easier for you.
