Physiotherapy & Occupational Therapy

We provide mobile allied health services for veterans in their homes including:

  • Physiotherapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Speech Pathology
  • Dietetics
Importantly, we are only able to accept DVA referrals for mobile, home visits where there is a genuine need for a home visit where:
  • there is a requirement to conduct a home assessment or;
  • if the entitled person is physically unable to travel
Clear examples are:
  • Occupational Therapy – home visits to assess and prescribe equipment or home modifications
  • Physiotherapy – home visits where a veteran is unable to attend a clinic easily
  • Speech Pathology – home visits where a veteran is unable to attend a clinic easily
  • Dietitian – home visits where a veteran is unable to attend a clinic easily

A veteran may not be able to attend a local clinic easily due to mobility impairments, mental health conditions, geographical area or not having access to transport.

You can call us to organise an appointment by calling us or emailing us on the contact page.

Alternatively, you can make a referral on the referral page.
