Southwest benefits from expansion
Therapy Focus has expanded service delivery to the lower southwest region of Western Australia to support people with disabilities living in Busselton, Dunsborough, Margaret River and surrounds.
Occupational Therapist Danelle Milward coordinates service delivery in the lower southwest and said that the expansion will help fill gaps in current service provision and give families more choice.
“Families living in the southwest region can now benefit from the significant experience and expertise within Therapy Focus, with access to a full service, mobile therapy team” Danelle said.
“We’re working to fill the gaps, particularly in terms of early childhood and school-age intervention, and we’re doing a lot of work to support adults with disabilities to live more independently.”
In addition to NDIS and contract-funded services, Therapy Focus also offers private services for children who have developmental delays, as well as adults who require rehabilitation or suffer from chronic pain.
“The establishment of the new Southwest Team will mean that so many more people and families will be able to access the support they need, including those without disabilities who wish to purchase our comprehensive therapy services for a fee,” Danelle said.
