Occupational Therapists work with Members to enable them to continue with their work and other interests for as long as possible when otherwise limited through disease, injury or aging.
This is achieved through problem solving, retraining, learning new strategies or using aids and equipment.
At the MS Society the Occupational Therapist will:
- Assess individual skills and the environment, including home and work;
- Make recommendations and provide essential information;
- Provide equipment for trial where possible;
- Seek out and apply for funding grants when required;
- Refer to other agencies for specialised assessment including driving assessment, cognition assessment, poor vision and equipment funding;
- Provide individual and group education on fatigue management;
- Provide individual and group education on manual handling for family members.
For further information, please contact the Occupational Therapy Department on telephone 9365 4831 or 9365 4804 or contact us.
