Our Services

Access Capabilities provides occupational therapy and project management consultancy relating to environmental modifications required for patients with a disability. Each environmental modification is unique and is interpreted to respond directly to each patient’s specific injuries, location and current home specifications.

Our approach to each modification is a balance between meeting the patient’s needs, that of their carer’s, the funding body and various legislative organisations. This requires us to gain a detailed understanding of the unique social, environmental and functional issues that present themselves in each case. This approach is central to our practice and requires the amalgamation of knowledge of our Occupational Therapist and Environmental Modifications Project Manager, who together create a detailed and practical response to individual cases.

By combining the knowledge of our Occupational Therapist and Environmental Modifications Project Manager, we are able to minimise potential problems, create optimal solutions and reduce both time and cost for most projects.
