The Junction – Mobile Allied Health Services
Community Therapy was founded in the Newcastle area and has served the Junction and surrounding suburbs since 2016.
We have since grown to become a recognised mobile healthcare provider in the Hunter. We provide Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology, Dietetics and Massage services to the disability and aged care sectors.
Our services are delivered on a mobile basis, so we treat people in their homes or any location they are currently living, including residential facilities and group homes.
Founded and run by Novocastrians, we are dedicated to our vision of delivering exceptional mobile allied health services. Many of our staff are graduates from Newcastle University, so we are proud to work in the same region that has given us so much.
We feel that our wonderful company culture really shines through in the level of care that we provide in our services.
The goal of our Physiotherapists is to work with clients to improve their physical capacity so they can participate in the things in life that they love.
Our qualified Physiotherapists work with a range of clients including different physical or neurological injuries, complex disabilities and offer post-surgery rehabilitation. Some of the goals they may work on with clients include:
- Improving strength, mobility, balance, and coordination, which encourages independence and safeguards against falls
- Improving conditioning and endurance to make people more mobile
- Decreasing and managing pain
We work towards achieving meaningful goals using evidence-based interventions.
Our OTs, generally speaking, help people live with greater independence, greater safety and help people work towards their meaningful goals.
We visit people at their home to perform comprehensive assessments, such as reviewing internal and external risk factors. We make appropriate recommendations, such as clinically-sound equipment, including assistive technology. All equipment can be trialled and reviewed.
We are also able to perform home modifications, which include minor modifications such as ramps and rails, through to complex projects such as lifts.
Our OT services are available at all property types, whether the client is an owner, renter, or live in a supported facility.
Our Dietitians support people optimise their eating habits and overall knowledge of health. We are equipped to help people with specific conditions create long-term changes that are personalised to their circumstances.
Importantly, we acknowledge people’s preferences, habits and choices. Our Dietitians understand these factors which typically makes our interventions highly applicable.
Home Care Clients
We partner with homecare package providers integrating into a multidisciplinary team. We are also experienced in providing care under the Aged Care Quality Standards as we partner with most home care providers in our region and many residential aged care providers as well.
We absolutely love partnering with home care providers to support their clients to live longer and better in their own homes!
