What do we offer?

Occupational Therapists (OTs) enable people of all ages to participate in activities of everyday life that are meaningful to them. OTs are client-centered and skilled with working closely with individuals, families and the community, to enhance people’s ability to engage in occupations. 

These occupations include completing personal care, domestic activities, and community participation. OTs complete this by modifying the task, modifying the environment and enhancing people’s skills and knowledge.

Some ways that OTs complete this (but not limited to) include:

  • Prescription of aids and equipment (including mobility scooters, wheelchairs, shower chairs, recliners, modified cutlery, toilet equipment)
  • Walking aid prescription (including walking sticks and walking frames)
  • Home modifications (including ramps, rails and level entry bathrooms)
  • Health promotion and education
  • Assisting people in managing chronic conditions
  • Implementing falls prevention strategies
  • Personal alarm prescription

Community availability

The OT team is based at MTHCS Ouyen and visits residential aged care facilities in Ouyen and Sea Lake.
