This month we recognise Sensory Processing Awareness Month.

The month is about educating others on what sensory processing disorder is (SPD), how living with the disorder can impact on someone's day to day life and what are the best strategies and resources to assist someone with SPD to live a happy and healthy life.

To gain a better understanding of SPD and how occupational therapy can assist someone living with the disorder, we spoke with HenderCare occupational therapist, Alice Zubrinich.

Meet Peich.

Peich has recently joined HenderCare's Allied Health team as a Speech Pathologist. We sat down with her to learn about her role, how she got into the industry and her favourite thing to do on the weekend.

Today marks the beginning of Speech Pathology Week.

The theme of Speech Pathology Week this year is Communicating with Confidence.

June is Aphasia Awareness Month, and today on June 3 we recognise ‘Wednesday With our Words’.

While in the midst of coronavirus (COVID-19), HenderCare has continued to provide care to clients, adapting services where necessary.

April Falls Month might sound a little like April Fool’s Day, but this awareness month is no laughing matter.

During this time of the coronavirus (COVID-19) we understand that people may be feeling more anxious than normal. However, having contact and conversations with others is more important now than ever.

With the Coronavirus (COVID-19) changing the way all of us go about our daily lives, the health industry is working to ensure that those who need continued care and support still receive it during this unusual period.

COVID-19 is having an impact on the way that people are accessing their regular health services.

With community social distancing now in place, many providers, including HenderCare, are looking at alternative ways to ensure clients are able to more safely access the services they need.
