Therapy Beyond Hospitals
For many, leaving hospital following illness or injury is not the end of the story. Hospital stays can be costly and can often present new risks to our health.
Urgent hospital stays can be swift and costly, dealing with our immediate needs, but not addressing our long-term health needs.
The reality is that the majority of people leaving hospital would benefit from follow-up or ongoing rehabilitation to maximise their recovery potential.
This is where Lifeweavers can step-in. We offer ongoing, community based occupational therapy in the familiar and convenient environment of your own home.

Why Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy is a skilled health profession dedicated to the improvement and maximisation of function and performance so that people can live healthier, more productive and happier lives.
Being a client-centred health profession concerned with promoting health and well being through occupation, the primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life.
An occupational therapist can assist you to understand what is preventing you from doing the things you need and want to do, and support with tailor made solutions to address these barriers.
What are the benefits of occupational therapy in the community?
We come to you – ideal for those who may find it difficult to access a hospital or clinic.
We save you time – we all have busy schedules and responsibilities, seeing you at home cuts out unnecessary travel time.
We see you in your own home – to truly understand a person’s needs, we believe working with you in your own home is key.
We assess your environment – your health and rehabilitation could be affected by your environment, and this cannot be fully understood from hospital assessment alone.
We save you money – we take a preventative approach to lower the risk of further hospital admission, and help to maintain your health for the future.
What occupational therapy can do for the aging population and those with chronic conditions?
Support effective self management of chronic diseases.
Promote the older population to age at home safely and with improved quality of life.
Prevent hospital admissions and therefore reduce the need for long-term care.
