Veteran services

ActivOT practitioners actively work with the veteran community to meet their unique and specialised needs. It is our privilege to serve those who served our country and their spouses and dependants.

Occupational therapy services for veterans

ActivOT practitioners are registered providers of services for veterans. We have over 15 years experience providing services under the Rehabilitation Appliance Program.

The Rehabilitation Appliance Program supplies aids and appliances to help veterans to:

  • maximise independence
  • improve quality of life
  • minimise the impact of disabilities

Aids or appliances can include:

  • continence products
  • mobility aids – walking frames, walking sticks, gophers and wheelchairs
  • functional support aids – electric beds and electric recline lift chairs
  • falls prevention items – sensor lights, retractable garden hoses, slip resistant mats and portable clothes lines
  • personal response systems.
