Using our clinical expertise, we work with the individual to set goals, create support plans and provide the appropriate services to support people to live as independently as possible.
Our skilled therapists will help you to establish a therapy program and provide treatment or train someone to undertake the program. We can build capacity, with family and carers undertaking therapy or exercises under the supervision of a skilled therapist which can deliver ongoing benefit to the recipient.
We cultivate a flexible approach with the ability to provide services in-home or at one of our centres. You will have access to:
- Occupational Therapists
- Exercise physiology
- Speech pathology
Early Childhood Intervention Supports
Early Childhood Early Intervention is a nationally consistent, best practice support approach for children aged 0-6 years old who have a developmental delay or disability, which provides individualised support for each child based on their needs.
St Jude’s support all children and their families to achieve better long-term outcomes, regardless of diagnosis. Types of supports will be tailored to each child and their family according to their needs.
Our therapy assessment program includes:
- Prescription and training in the use of equipment such as wheelchairs, shower commodes, hoists, transfer aids and more, to enable individuals to remain as safe and independent as possible.
- Assessment about modifying living environments
- Functional assessment to identify and seek NDIS funding support to live independently such as independent living abilities assessment, support needs assessment, sensory processing assessment and functional behavioural assessment.
Assistive technology includes any device or system that provides practical solutions for an individual to remain as independent as possible, performing activities of daily living.
