The Benefits of Taking a Theraholiday with us!
An individual therapy program is the best way to get high levels of therapy while enjoying the Sunshine Coast. The program is led by Jessica, our highly specialised Neurological Physiotherapist alongside her team who have extensive Neurological experience and additional certifications in Neurological Rehabilitation.
Our Theraholiday programs typically run from 3 days to 2 weeks in duration, and we will customise the program subject to the client’s available time each day, their individual goals for the holiday and also any plans which may come into play. The program customisation begins with contacting us with an expression of interest. From there an Allied Health Professional, not a salesperson, will contact you to discuss goals of your intensive therapy and make recommendations to suit these goals.
We then program in use of our state-of-the-art facility, which can include using unique neurological rehabilitation equipment that you may not normally have access to in your hometown and link you up with experienced professionals who have expert knowledge in their clinical interest pathways.
After the program has been designed, we send a quote for services to check that it fits within your funding and can include recommendations for accommodation and support workers if you are unable to find your own.
Your first session at the clinic on your disability holiday will involve assessments which will be retested at the end of the intensive therapy program to ensure you have qualified proof of the benefits of therapeutic intervention for the funding body that funds your Theraholiday. This evidence will be provided in report form and Enhanced Living is always proactive in ensuring our standards of care and reporting remain second to none.
Every single program is tailored to suit the individual’s goals and personal conditions to ensure the best possible outcome and improvement. Theraholiday Programs run throughout the year, and we can provide advice on accessible accommodation and support for an extended stay if you are travelling from out of the region.
