Did you know 25th – 31st October is Occupational Therapy Week?
This year’s theme is participation, inclusion and independence and celebrates the role OTs play in supporting people of all abilities to engage in activities they find meaningful.
Our team of OTs at Brain Injury SA have a wide variety of experience and can work with you and your family to help to achieve your goals and adjust to changes in your life roles post injury.
This might be through:
🧠 Providing equipment that can help you to be independent in everyday tasks
🧠 Modifying your home to help you access all areas safely
🧠 Supporting you with upper limb function
🧠 Looking at volunteer and paid employment roles
🧠 Helping you to manage rest and sleep
🧠 Helping you with memory issues or with planning
🧠 Helping you manage your parenting responsibilities
Keep an eye on social media this week to hear about some of our success stories!

Brittany is a participant from our Southern Hub and is fulfilling her dream to be a published writer.
In August she attended the launch of “Adelaide: Mapping the Human City”, a book full of poems about Adelaide by many writers, in which she is also featured.
Her poem was about her experience entering Ayers House.
Congratulations Brittany from all of us at BISA! 👏💜💙

Looking for support to embrace life after ABI? 🧠
Our REWIRE program has been designed to support you to do just this.
Operating from our 3 Rewire Hubs, Central, North and South, the approach we take is simple; first, we get to know you and your family, learn about your injury and understand what you want to achieve.
Then, we work WITH YOU to design a tailored therapy program matching your unique goals and circumstances.
After that you access our team of allied health professionals such as Physio's, Psychologists, Speech Pathologists, Dietitians and more and attend sessions with them at one of our REWIRE Hub's, or from the comfort of your home.
Whatever works best for you!
