Holistic Occupational Therapy services for the elderly 

Hi! We are FunctionAbility, a holistic Occupational Therapy practice that provides a wide range of progressive therapy services to older adults and the elderly. We specialise in sensory intervention and sensory integration, independent living skills, mobility assessments, equipment provision, cognitive assessments and much more to support safety and independence for the individual as well as support areas of occupation such as self-care, productivity/education and social interaction. 
Mobility and accessibility in and around the home 
There are a vast variety of physical difficulties that may affect a person’s ability to mobilise and access their amenities independently. Injury, illness or physical disability may affect your ability to access your amenities or live independently within your own home. 
We offer assessment of your home area and how your physical difficulty may be affecting your independence. Following assessment, we also offer intervention to overcome these challenges. This process typically involves a home visit assessment (which may also be done through a telehealth tool), report writing and intervention planning, followed by implementation of recommendations and follow-up on efficacy of implemented recommendations. 
Assessment and prescription of adaptive equipment 
We work with people with a variety of physical difficulties, such as people with amputations, wheelchair users, physical diagnoses such as Cerebral Palsy as well as temporary loss of physical function due to illness or operations (such as joint replacement). These physical challenges may affect your ability to perform tasks independently. As Occupational Therapists, independence of our clients is most important and we strive to assist in achieving as much independence for our clients as possible. 
In order to achieve independence when living with physical difficulties, assistive or adaptive equipment may be needed. We offer assessment of physical functioning and meaningful occupations in order to prescribe and recommend equipment that may assist with independent functioning and performance of daily tasks. This may include equipment to assist with toileting, self-care, home management, cooking, cleaning, participating in leisure activities or work and more. The process would typically include assessment (either in person or using a telehealth tool), report writing with recommended devices as well as sourcing and implementation of recommended devices. We perform follow-up consultations as well to ensure appropriate and safe use of equipment.
