Our Allied Health Assistants (AHA) provide ongoing therapy to our clients across all clinical teams including Physiotherapy, Speech Pathology, Exercise Physiology, Dietetics, Occupational Therapy and our Mental Health Team.
By engaging our Allied Health Assistants as part of your overall therapy plan, you will not only make the most of your funding, but you will also benefit from more regular therapy.
Your clinician is required to complete an assessment and delegate tasks (as deemed appropriate) for the AHA to complete. The treating clinician then establishes a plan to monitor the progression of the treatment program.
Allied Health Assistants support our therapists and our clients by:
- Implementing therapy sessions prescribed by qualified therapists. Therapy programs are goal based, and target physical, cognitive, and psycho-social functioning
- Completing progress notes/documentation
- Developing client resources
- Liaising with other professionals e.g., doctors, other therapists, work colleagues
- Work independently and alongside senior therapists
- Educating those around you including families and carers
It’s important to note that referrals cannot be made directly for an Allied Health Assistant, as the client & AHA must be managed by a supervising clinician. For example, if you are interested in utilising one of our AHA’s for on-going speech pathology or dietetics, you would first need to send a referral for that particular discipline first.
Our AHA’s are fully mobile and will meet you in your preferred environment to undertake the prescribed treatments.
Recovery Station have AHA’s available across Sydney, Central Coast and the Hunter. This means our team is well placed to deliver services to you in the environment that best suits your needs.
Our AHA’s support our clinicians and form part of our Multidisciplinary Allied Health team that work together toward your goals.
