Health Rehabilitation Services
Alliance Rehabilitation was formed as a collaboration between experienced health professionals to deliver innovative, quality, effective, efficient, and safe goal-orientated rehabilitation programs to North Queensland. With a vision to be a truly interdisciplinary service of the highest standard that could make a difference and achieve positive outcomes for those with the greatest and most complex needs. To achieve this, Alliance Rehabilitation has one of the largest interdisciplinary health teams in the region, including Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Pathologists, Exercise Physiologists, Social Workers, Psychologists and Neuropsychologist, Accredited Practising Dietitians & Nutritionists, Nurses and Doctors.
Services are provided through Community Based Rehabilitation Services (CBRS), National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), WorkCover, National Injury Insurance Scheme (NIISQ), Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) & Private referrals. While based in Townsville, Alliance Rehabilitation has extensive outreach services in Ayr, Ingham, Charters Towers, Hughenden, Richmond, Magnetic Island and Palm Island.
Alliance Rehabilitation operates a full Tyromotion Robotic and Computer Assisted Therapy suite and still the only of its kind in Queensland; the suite is a state of the art approach to upper limb therapy, maintenance and cognitive rehabilitation which makes therapy fun, effective and encourages greater outcomes. Alliance Rehabilitation is also the only service in Townsville to maintain a professional driving simulator to assist participants in their goal to return to driving as quickly and safely as possible under the guidance of Alliance Rehabilitation’s Occupational Therapy Driving Assessors.
Alliance Rehabilitation is responsive to local community needs; an example of which is the service’s new short-term specialist disability and health accommodation facility under development in Townsville, due for completion in the second half of 2018. The facility will assist participants return to the community, have respite or transition to their own long-term accommodation. Services in the facility will be tailored to suit individual needs, under the principals of choice and control, along with the ability for carers and family to stay with participants in the modern, state of the art, LHA Platinum level dwellings.
