If you, or someone you care for, requires allied health treatment and/or rehabilitation, then Baptcare’s Westhaven Day Therapy Centre may be able to assist you.
Our centre offers a range of tailored therapy support services to older people including podiatry, physiotherapy and occupational therapy. These services are delivered by a multidisciplinary team who are committed to improving health outcomes, particularly for those with chronic conditions.
Day therapy aims to:
- Maximise independence in activities of daily living
- Promote health and wellbeing
- Promote self management of physical conditions.
Who is eligible?
