Our team of highly qualified clinicians from a multidisciplinary background are skilled to support people living with disability. Therapeutic supports are delivered by professionals including occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech and language pathologists, social workers and clinical psychologists. Home care packages are in home services that are funded [either in part or full] by the Australian government to help individuals live in the comfort of their own homes whilst receiving care.
Physiotherapy uses a range of techniques to help improve movement and reduce pain to help increase quality of life. They also help manage a range of conditions relating the bones, muscles cardiovascular and nervous systems. All our physiotherapists are resisted with the Australian Health Practitioner Registration Agency (AHPRA).
Our occupational therapists assist in providing care to people living with significant or permanent disabilities to help them lead independent and healthy lives. Occupational therapists not only assist with physical rehabilitation, but also pain management and mental health. They can assist by adapting tasks through home modifications, assistive technology or vehicle modifications to ensure ease when performing daily tasks.
Our speech pathologists help individuals improve communication through a customised plan specific to every individual. Speech impairments that have resulted from illness, injury or through childhood disorders can be assisted through speech therapy through a number of exercises, helping improve overall communication and confidence.
Through behavioural support, individuals with disabilities can have strategies according to their needs that deal with underlying behaviours and concerns to help address behavioural issues. These therapies are a long-term positive framework put in place provided to minimise challenging behaviour.
We assist participants to implement an approved plan by strengthening their ability to connect with the broader systems of support and understanding the purpose of the funding. Support coordination will assist a participant to understand all aspects of the plan, aid in the ongoing management and answer questions as they arise.
Our experienced Support Coordination staff can act on behalf of the participant, to contact organisations, community groups and services to research your options and obtain quotes so you can make an informed decision about which services you would like to purchase with your NDIS funding.
Farris Care Service plan manager undertakes the financial management of the plan which includes setting up arrangements, making payments to providers of your choice and developing monthly statements for participants claiming for payments from the NDIS. This support may include liaising with providers in regard to the provisions of support and implementation of the participants plan.
Life skills development and training include public transport training and support, developing skills for community, social and recreational participation. We also encourage individuals to participate in group activities through integrating into their community and participating in any other recreational activities. This promotes independence and confidence in various social situations, further developing life skills.
