Momentum offers enhanced multi-disciplinary care with occupational therapy services for adults.
Occupational Therapy Services
Occupational therapists assist clients to maximise function and independence through a range of interventions, often provided in the home setting. Available services include:
In order to set goals for therapy, identify care needs, or assess functional capacity, an assessment of your daily living skills (ADLs) may be undertaken. This can be used to plan for service provision, evaluate progress and to provide evidence of your disability. Daily living skills include all of the activities you undertake on a daily basis, such as:
- Personal care and hygiene
- Cleaning and laundering
- Cooking and food preparation
- Mobility and the ability to transfer
- Ability to manage finances
- Management of medications
- Home and garden maintenance
ADL therapy can include developing skills and capacity, learning new techniques, adapting the task requirements, training and practice in using aids and devices, and applying gains made in a therapy setting to the actual task e.g. increased standing tolerance applied to standing at the kitchen bench to cook.
Who can access occupational therapy services?
Our occupational therapists work with adult clients with a range of disabilities including physical, intellectual and psychosocial. Our service can be accessed by NDIS participants, via GP referral under Medicare, or private funding.
