Who We Work With

Our Clients

Age isn’t a barrier for us. We are qualified – and very happy – to work with people of all ages and it’s one of our big points of difference. It means we can help people as young as toddler, all the way through to retirees and the elderly.

Our Partners

We have strong connections with other community support groups and specialist services who may not have the expertise to provide their own OT services. Their clients or participants may also have been referred to see an OT. They need the reassurance and comfort that their clients are being cared for, as if their own.

Our Suppliers

A key part of the OT approach is to establish if and/or where assisted technology and equipment is required to enhance a client’s life. To do this, we have built trusted relationships with a range of leading equipment suppliers to understand and personally recommend the right equipment for our clients’ needs.
