Our multidisciplinary Nulsen Therapy team can help you to meet your goals, take part in activities, be out and about, develop social skills to make friends, stay healthy, improve your independence at home, or exercise.
At home, our occupational therapists help people to expand everyday skills, such as personal care, cooking, and home activities to increase their independence. For some people with a physical disability, they help with seating and positioning, recommend and arrange equipment, and even home modifications to make life easier.
Our Nulsen physiotherapists can assess 24-hour postural care needs and develop programs to improve the mobility and freedom of residents. Our physios help train support workers to lift and help residents (manual handling), and suggest the best equipment to support resident independence.
Our occupational therapists use the latest therapy techniques for transport, accessible community activities, and along with the speech pathologists, help you to develop the social skills to make friendships and get along.
Our physiotherapists also train support workers to safely support you to take part in many fun community activities, such as working out at the local gym with a tailored exercise program, swimming, horse riding, trike riding and surfing.
And of course, healthy eating and dietary habits are crucial for maintaining quality of life.
Our dietitians help people achieve their health and wellbeing goals. They work closely with people, their carers or family, therapists, and positive behaviour support practitioners to understand someone’s needs and the best actions to achieve their goals.
