The benefits of an in-house allied health team
Having our own Allied Health team means we can ensure evidence-based excellence in care. A few of the many benefits of our team include:
- Our Allied Health professionals are chosen for their wide variety of rich experience, from working within community, residential aged care and acute care to expertise across a wide range of practices including general medical, surgical, assessment, pain management and palliative care. Our team draws on each other’s expertise and knowledge to offer you excellence in care.
- Our Allied Health team work closely with our nursing team and support advisors. That means we get the full picture of your needs to ensure you receive holistic care.
- A consistent team means we get to know you and partner with you through your entire journey, from your original assessment and intervention to timely feedback on your progress. Plus, we are there to review if your needs change.
- We are all about empowering you to regain or retain your independence. We look at what you can do, rather than what you can’t, and build on that.
We’ve got you covered
If your needs call for other allied health professionals, such as dementia specialists, podiatrists, speech therapists and dieticians, we can refer you to the right specialist. Our team will work with them so you can reach your goals.
