Allied Health

We can provide access to a range of health specialists

As well as nurses, Bolton Clarke also has occupational therapists, physiotherapists, podiatrists, speech pathologists and social workers who work alongside them. These specialist health services are often referred to as ‘allied health’.

Our occupational therapists and physiotherapists work to support you in regaining or retaining your best possible independence and mobility.

Our physiotherapists and occupational therapists can assist you with:

  • identifying areas where you want to achieve greater independence
  • advising you about equipment that may help you
  • helping you and your carers to use safe moving techniques to avoid injury
  • assessing your mobility and recommending appropriate walking devices
  • developing strategies to minimise risks and hazards within your home

Our social workers can assist you with:

  • helping you with counselling and advocacy needs
  • advising you on legal and financial issues
  • advising you on services such as guardianship and administration, aged care and disability care options
  • providing support to you and your family when you are faced with a difficult situation
  • accessing these services

If you are already a Bolton Clarke client, ask your nurse to arrange an allied health referral or contact our friendly team to find out more.

Our People

Every Bolton Clarke team member has a commitment to care, and draws on our heritage of compassion, kindness and respect. We offer a wide range of services across At Home Support, Retirement Living and Residential Aged Care.

The information and support we provide across all our services delivers the highest standards, and we make sure your health and wellbeing are the highest priority in everything we do. Our retirement villages have full Lifemark accreditation, while our services have Australian Council on Healthcare accreditation, and have achieved 100 per cent compliance with the Aged Care Act and Home Care Common Standards.

All our staff also have access to in-house education training programs, and a dedicated research team whose health and aged care research helps shape and constantly improve services for our clients and the community.

Community nursing is so important because it helps people stay well, and stay out of hospital. That’s what I love about this job.
