A needs assessment is often required when you need help to remain in your own home, or to regain your independence after an injury or illness. A physiotherapist, occupational therapist, or registered nurse will evaluate your home or community situation to identify the best form of assistance or equipment needed.
It’s not always possible for our clients to come to us, especially those who are older. We solve this problem by offering in-house rehab services at residential care facilities and resthomes around Otago. These services are fully accredited and can be customised to your residents’ needs.
If you own or manage a care facility, your staff may need upskilling on the best ways to work with your patients. Our training and education programmes teach your staff how to safely move people, how to help those with a traumatic brain injury, how to manage a range of behaviours, and how to offer seating and pressure relief.
