In the end we’ve asked a residential manager to sum up her experience with us

OT is a specialised service so we can address issues for residents that if we didn’t have the service would go un-serviced – so we have been able to improve standard of care and outcomes for residents in a positive, proactive and professional way that has improved quality of life for them. Plus we have a professional we can refer to that is able to attend to care needs and issues in a timely manner.

We really want to be part of the team, almost like the furniture,  that’s just what we’re about and that’s where we like to work and do our best work.
