My Therapy House now employs a Community Worker to help families support their children getting the best out of My Therapy House services.
What is a Community Worker?
Community workers empower and support clients to achieve their goals. They help people access the services and supports they need. They advocate for the child’s and family’s needs and are responsible for ensuring the families understand what is happening in their child’s therapy sessions, as well as collecting information from the carers to provide therapists about what may need to change in therapy and service provision.
A Community Worker in an Allied Health Multidisciplinary team is a relatively new concept. At My Therapy House we believe in a holistic approach to client services from the moment clients enquire about our services to the moment they leave.
Our Community Worker will support clients through this process from point of intake to discharge, helping them complete forms needed and understand the NDIS process and how we work with them as well as the documentation we present to them. The Community Worker will be the point of contact and liaison for clients.
