For many people who are disabled and their carers, a holiday is just not something they will get to experience often, or even at all because it is in the ‘too hard’ basket. Or, whilst it may be somewhat of a holiday, there can be a lot of extra organising and hassles to contend with to support someone who has high-needs, a disability, or a wheelchair in terms of arranging transport, sourcing suitable accommodation, and finding activities that everyone can enjoy, leaving you exhausted before you have even departed!
At Enhanced Living we are pleased to offer something really unique, a supported holiday which we call ‘Theraholidays’, which as the name suggests, combines ‘therapy’ with a ‘holiday’ bringing the best of two worlds together – the person with a disability accessing much needed intensive therapy which will help them reach their goals, and their carers and families a much needed break, whilst supporting them every step of the way.
Benefits of a Theraholiday
Wherever you are based in Australia, you or your loved one may already have a regular therapy program of some kind to help you/them reach their goals. Or, it could be that you live in a more rural or remote area which simply doesn’t have access to high quality intensive therapy, a multi-disciplinary facility and equipment, and a wide range of allied health solutions.
With state borders now open across Australia, Enhanced Living are pleased to welcome back clients to enjoy one of our Theraholidays which combine one of Queensland’s most popular holiday destinations (the Sunshine Coast where we are based) with our incredible facilities, our life-changing practitioners and our innovative approaches to getting results. Watch our brief video below showcasing what our Theraholidays are all about…
Getting Here – How to Travel to Enhanced Living to enjoy a Theraholiday
The Sunshine Coast is a coastal region located approximately 100km north of Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland. The Sunshine Coast is comprised of a string of smaller towns and localities along the coast, from south to north these include: Bribie Island, Caloundra, Mooloolabah, Maroochydore, Coolum and Noosa, with smaller centers dotted in between.
We are based smack in the heart of it all in Maroochydore, and the Sunshine Coast Airport is just a short 10 minute drive to our facility. There are regular flights arriving from Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, and from mid 2022, new airline Bonza will commence direct services between Sunshine Coast and 12 destinations in mid-2022, subject to regulatory approval.
If you are coming from a location with direct flights into the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane Airport is only a 1.5-hour drive away.
From either airport, you can hire a car or get a shuttle bus or private chauffeured transport to your accommodation at the Sunshine Coast. You can also go by train however you’ll need to get a taxi or local bus from the main Sunshine Coast train station (Nambour) to us or your accommodation, and in all cases, we are also happy to pick you up in our dedicated and accessible Enhanced Living van!
Why should you consider Enhanced Living for your next Theraholiday?
We’re not aware of anyone in the country offering something quite like what we offer with our Theraholidays. When you book in for a Theraholiday you can enjoy everything the Sunshine Coast has to offer – beaches (including those with disability access ramps and mats), good tropical food, a warm climate, and many accessible tourism attractions, while accessing a leading provider in neurological rehabilitation and state-of-the-art rehabilitation facilities at Enhanced Living.
Choose to come for just three days of therapy combined with a holiday, three weeks or something in between – the choice is completely up to you and what your NDIS package will allow.
If you are a carer, partner, or family member, come along to each day of therapy and watch them progress, or choose to have some much needed time out, resting in the fact that your loved one is being well taken care of by us.
To start exploring the possibilities of a Theraholiday, simply contact us and we can answer any questions you may have or start to custom design your Theraholiday in full consultation with you, connecting you to all the providers you will need for a great stay, accommodation recommendations, places to eat, places to go, and even suppliers of specialist hoists and equipment you may need during your stay.
