Tarryn Brady, ActivOT Beldon, completed a Bachelor of Applied Science in Occupational Therapy (OT) at the University of South Australia in 2007.
Tarryn’s primary experience has been working with adults in the community (such as those living with cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, Parkinson’s disease, Down syndrome, intellectual disability, dementia, amputation etc), however, more recently she worked in London in an acute older adult psychiatric ward, and then supporting people in the earlier stages of living with dementia.
Tarryn has extensive experience in delivering services such as:
- functional assessments
- equipment prescription (including powered wheelchairs, postural seating and pressure care)
- independent living skills (budgeting, time management, safety)
- minor home modifications
- complex case management
- education and training (including manual handling and dementia)
Tarryn has a particular interest in working with older adults, and believes that she was destined to work with the older generations. She has experience in facilitating early intervention programs for people living with dementia, and has worked as an occupational therapist with older people living in the community, in residential aged care facilities and acute inpatient settings. (including staff training)
Now that she has children of her own, Tarryn plans to upskill and expand to provide paediatric therapy services.
Tarryn is passionate about supporting people through difficult transitions, prioritising tailored support and communication. She also aspires to enlighten people about what possibilities exist to help them achieve increased independence and inclusion in their communities, strongly believing the mantra “you don’t know what you don’t know”.
In order to be able to maximise supporting as many people as possible, Tarryn also has a keen interest in running small group sessions, training and education.
Outside of her OT practice, Tarryn keeps busy as a mum of 2 small children, and as a “tradie wife”, managing her partner’s electrical company. She has particular interests in photography and hiking, and has enjoyed extensive travel around the world.
