The role:
In this pivotal Occupational Therapist role, you'll immerse yourself in a rewarding opportunity within the NDIS and Aged Care sectors, focusing on enhancing individuals' functionality and independence across all facets of their lives. Your mission involves conducting thorough OT-specific assessments, interventions, and planning. Emphasizing a person-centred, holistic approach, you are tasked with delivering high-quality, effective, and efficient services. Your goal-directed care will champion clients' wellness and encourage their active participation in care decisions, ensuring their needs and aspirations are at the heart of your practice.

Your responsibilities are both diverse and impactful. You will provide evidence-based, person-centred assessments, clinical management, and intervention for individuals with cognitive, physical, or psycho-social disabilities, aligning with NDIS goals. This includes prescribing assistive technology, recommending home modifications, and preparing funding applications. Furthermore, you will conduct ADL and functional capacity assessments in clients' homes, managing a caseload of clients presenting with varying degrees of complexity and functional limitations. Your role is crucial in empowering clients through strengths-based, client-centred approaches, facilitating goal identification, and fostering a capacity-building approach toward achieving sustainable outcomes.

Collaboration and communication are key elements of your position. You will liaise with the NDIS, support coordinators, external organizations, and other referrers/funding bodies, providing therapy and progress reports as required. Participating in quality improvement initiatives, allied health service delivery projects, and relevant meetings underscores your commitment to service excellence. Additionally, you will ensure your interventions and service delivery reflect the cultural and social diversity of the community, staying abreast of NDIS legislation, rules, and regulations to deliver community-based allied health services effectively.

This role is not only about providing exceptional client care but also offers a unique opportunity for professional growth and leadership. You will have the chance to establish and expand the Occupational Therapy team, significantly influencing the creation of billable hours and the development of processes and policies. Participation in professional development and adherence to all relevant legislation and guidelines are paramount, ensuring your continued growth and the upholding of the highest standards of care and compliance. This position promises a fulfilling career path for those passionate about making a tangible difference in the lives of individuals navigating the challenges of disability and aging.
