Accommodation collaboration occupational therapy home and living project

In an exciting St John God Accord initiative, Jenny Hutchens, our Senior Occupational Therapist has taken a role supporting some of our clients in accommodation with the Occupational Therapy Home and Living Project.

St John God Accord Jenny Hutchens Senior Occupational Therapist

The 12-month role has been created to assist clients by gathering evidence for their NDIS Home and Living applications to secure additional needed Supported Independent Living (SIL) funding, or to achieve Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) funding.

Jenny will be identifying information about current supports and needs through discussions, assessments and review of files and reports in prioritised order.

This information will be reviewed, and if seen as insufficient, will be submitted to the NDIS for review.

This innovative project is a collaboration between Allied Health and accommodation services and will work towards ensuring clients are receiving the right level of funding for their needs.
