Coastal Physiotherapy’s Occupational Therapist (OT) offer activity of daily living assessments in Maroochydore, Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Gold Coast and north to Gympie, Maryborough, Bundaberg, Gladstone and Cairns.  An ADL assessment may be requested by a member of the community, or referred by a third party (Insurer, WorkCover or CTP).

The Occupational Therapist conducts this assessment in a person’s home, identifying their limitations or restrictions in relation to personal and domestic activities of daily living and community access.  The OT may recommend equipment to improve independence, or simply provide education in correct body mechanics for the performance of home tasks in order to minimise continued aggravation to the injured area.
