Accord Care’s Allied Health Team is made up of Psychologists, Speech Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Social Workers and Dietitians who provide both therapeutic and interventional supports that are tailored to the unique needs of each participant.
Occupational therapists can assist people with disabilities through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. They can help participants develop, recover, improve, as well as maintain the skills needed for daily living and working.
Psychologists can help participants learn to cope more effectively with life issues and mental health challenges. They help by using a variety of techniques based on the latest research and provide advice and therapy to suit a participant’s unique values, characteristics, goals, and circumstances.
Physiotherapists can provide treatment to participants to address physical problems arising from such things as injury, illness, or ageing. They can provide exercises that work to overcome restrictions of movement.
Direct-service social workers can help participants solve and cope with problems in their everyday lives. Social workers help people to face life’s challenges, improve wellbeing, and work to ensure that participants are treated fairly. Social workers usually see people when they are facing some sort of crisis, such as family related issues, homelessness, or mental health issues.
Exercise Physiologists work with healthy individuals and those who may have a wide range of chronic diseases or musculoskeletal conditions. They conduct assessments, prescribe appropriate exercise, supervise, and monitor exercise and lifestyle programs to meet the needs of participants.
Speech pathologists work with participants if they have difficulties in communicating because of developmental delays, stroke, brain injuries, learning disability, intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, dementia, and hearing loss. They diagnose and treat communication disorders, including difficulties with speech, language, swallowing, fluency, and voice.
Dietitians provide dietary advice; help promote healthy eating habits and develop specific diets for people wanting to address certain health issues. They strive to improve a participant’s life by addressing their dietary choices.
Podiatrists are concerned with the health of feet, ankle, and lower limb health. They work to prevent, diagnose, and treat a wide range of conditions. They treat foot problems that arise from underlying medical conditions such as diabetes and arthritis.
Community Nursing Care
Community nurses perform a variety of nursing procedures to assist participants. They can provide basic care (checking temperature, blood pressure and breathing), administer injections, assist doctors with examinations and medical procedures, clean and dress wounds as well as set up intravenous drips and monitoring ongoing care.
