What is an Allied Health Professional?

  • 1 min

Allied health professionals provide essential healthcare services in the community, helping to support people of all ages, including older individuals, children, and individuals with disabilities.

Allied health professionals work in various areas to support a person’s physical, emotional, and mental well-being, which can include:

  • Physiotherapy services can create personalised exercise programs, provide assessments for falls and mobility issues, and advise on enhancing movement and reducing pain or injury.
  • Speech Pathology services can help people with speaking or swallowing difficulties by conducting speech assessments and providing support to improve their communication skills.
  • Occupational Therapy services can help with more effective daily activity management by evaluating the need for technological aids, suggesting home modifications, identifying challenges, and developing plans to enhance everyday functions.
  • Psychology services can support emotional and mental well-being, helping people with issues such as stress and depression through therapy, evaluations, and teaching coping strategies.

Working closely with the individual, their family, and other medical experts, Allied Health professionals ensure that the care is perfectly tailored to meet their needs. They can also help with planning to get the most out of Government programs such as the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and Home Care Packages (HCP).
