When to consider an Occupational Therapy Home Assessment for Elderly People.
If you or a loved one are facing challenges in your daily life, whether due to a sudden injury, a chronic condition, or issues due to aging, it may be time to seek occupational therapy. A referral from a primary care physician or another healthcare provider is often the first step in accessing this service. You can then organise an in-home therapy assessment with an occupational therapist of your choice.

As your dedicated Package provider, our comprehensive service extends beyond mere physical care. We prioritise not only the health but also the emotional well-being of you or your loved one.

Occupational therapy (OT) for the elderly at home is a branch of healthcare that focuses on helping older adults maintain or regain their independence and improve their ability to perform daily activities within their home environment. The goal of occupational therapy is to enhance the overall quality of life for older people by addressing physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges that may affect their ability to engage in meaningful activities. This is done through home management, aids and equipment, and therapy.
You don’t need to stay with a Provider that you’re not happy with. In February 2017 Consumer Directed Care (CDC) legislation was amended which has empowered Home Care Package (HCP) holders with the freedom and control to actively participate in their own care.
If you’re happy with the service you’re getting, then that’s great, but if you want to change to a better solution then you also have the option to change to other providers.
When you decide to change Providers, check your previous Home Care Agreement for any fees or special conditions. Your Agreement will indicate your notice period to leave the Provider.
If your care needs have changed as you’ve gotten older and you are struggling to do what you used to, you may be eligible to receive some help at home from the government.
This may be in the form of a Home Care Package or Commonwealth Home Support Programme. To find out if you are eligible for support from the government you can call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 and request an assessment. The outcome of the assessment will determine if you are eligible for Home Care Package, Commonwealth Home Support Programme., or neither at that present time. You can also call us and we can help you on this journey to assessment.
Home Care Package holders must have a government Approved Provider to administer funds appropriately and to meet ongoing government compliance, on their behalf. This is a government requirement and cannot be done by the individual.
