Catholic Homes operates the Day Therapy Centre in Guildford, WA
This is a federally funded initiative which provides Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Podiatry services to older people living in the community and to low care residents in aged care hostels. Our goal is to assist clients to improve or maintain their independence and cognitive abilities.
We accept referrals from clients, their family/friends, GPs, hospitals, Social Workers, Community Health Workers, Allied Health Professionals and the Aged Care Assessment Team.
New clients are fully assessed by our Physiotherapist and Occupational Therapist and a treatment program is formulated to meet their needs.
Clients are required to contribute a very small fee for the above services. These fees may be waived in the case of financial hardship. Transport is also available for a minimal fee. Lunch, morning and afternoon tea is provided.
