Suncare is collaborating with the University of the Sunshine Coast to help achieve improved health outcomes for our customers through the Stepping On Program.
We recently piloted an occupational therapy program delivered by third year Occupational Therapy Honours students from the University of the Sunshine Coast – Shar Bond and Brianna Lowe assisted customers to stay safe living independently at home.
How does Occupational Therapy help?
An ‘occupation’ may be any task, including those relating to personal hygiene, social skills or housekeeping. Occupational therapy helps customers to maintain their ability to manage these tasks and other everyday activities. A key element of our program is to implement strategies at home that aim to reduce the risk of falls. The program is part of Suncare’s coordinated approach to meeting our customer’s needs.
