Achieve functional independence

AND OPTIMISE YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE

Rise OT is Brisbane based and provides Occupational Therapy (OT) services for adolescents and adults. Our service was established in 2015 by two Occupational Therapists who saw an opportunity to provide quality services in their local community. Since this time, we have continued to grow our scope of practice based on the specialised skills of our team. We are a small team of experienced Occupational Therapists who love what we do. We have a supportive practice and close knit workplace, enabling us to ensure we are providing quality interventions. We value multi-disciplinary practice and love working with other allied health professionals and service providers to ensure optimal outcomes for our clients.

Telehealth

Telehealth appointments are offered to eligible clients. We utilise video and phone technology to deliver OT services. Telehealth services are supported by many funding bodies. An initial intake phone conversation will be conducted to ensure these services are the most appropriate option to meet client needs prior to commencement of intervention.

Telehealth and video conferencing provide an effective method of delivering OT services without requiring face-to-face appointments. They allow increased infection control and access to supports for clients located in isolated areas. To participate in Telehealth services you will require an internet connection and a suitable device with a camera and a microphone (eg. tablet, iPad, laptop, smart phone). Prior to commencement of Telehealth services, we will assist you with set-up through provision of easy to follow instructions. We provide an appointment time and link to join the session via email to allow ease of access to services.
