Driving Assessment & Rehabilitation

Occupational Therapy and Driving

Our aim is to optimise driver mobility and capacity to drive safely in conditions that suit their capabilities.

WOTS offers support to clients who, through injury or illness, are experiencing difficulties in relation to their ability to drive. We assess and evaluate the physical, behavioural or cognitive impairments of our client and their ability to drive safely, consistently and independently. WOTS can then make recommendations about driver rehabilitation, vehicle modifications and licence conditions to VicRoads Medical Review. 

Based in Warrnambool, we are available to travel to surrounding areas such as Portland, Hamilton, Camperdown, and Timboon.

Occupational Therapy and Quality of Life

The WOTS aim is to assist people who are having difficulty with their everyday activities in order for them to be independent, improve their quality of life, and for them to remain living in their own home.

WOTS can conduct an assessment of your home, your local environment, and your day to day activities. We will look at safety issues and potential hazards and then make suggestions to make tasks easier and safer for you.

Some of the strategies we may recommend include: 

  • advising on your approach to daily activities; exploring alternative methods for performing daily tasks
  • use of assistive devices, aids, and equipment
  • home modifications including installation of ramps, grab rails or improving access at cupboards and benches

 

We specialise in:

  • self-management
  • skill maximization for older adults
  • younger adults living with disabling conditions
  • supporting individuals with mental health issues
  • based in Warrnambool, we are available to travel to surrounding areas such as Portland, Hamilton, Camperdown, and Timboon
