Accelerate the Growth of Life Enhancing Habits

Habit Coaches (or Allied Health Assistants) are supportive members of our therapy team, working closely with a person’s therapist to build new habits and incorporate routines into their life.

Habit Coaches provide bursts of support between therapy sessions to enable people to build their confidence and skills to engage in everyday life.

When you join Everyday Independence as a Habit Coach, you’ll be supported by some of the best therapists in the industry, across different disciplines, to engage in rewarding work in the community. You’ll have pathways to move into other roles within the organisation – from clinical specialisation to operational leadership.

“Working as a Habit Coach has given me a head start into the workforce and I get to work with some amazing therapists who’ve offered me a lot of support. I get to experience what working as an Occupational Therapist is like.”
– Izzy, Habit Coach and second year Occupational Therapy student.

What Do Our Habit Coaches (Allied Health Assistants) Do?

Your healthcare assistant job duties involve supporting therapists to implement therapy plans. These enable people with disabilities to achieve the everyday tasks and moments that many take for granted, and to work towards achieving their life goals.

Here are some of the jobs our Habit Coaches did last week:

  • Worked alongside a therapist at a person’s home to understand their goals, strengths and interests, and developed strategies to help them achieve those goals.
  • Worked independently with the person in their home and local community to put in place habits and routines.
    For example, our Habit Coach Connor supported his client to make his own breakfast, do his laundry and create a grocery list. Then accompanied him to the supermarket, because the client’s goal is to move out of his parents’ house and into his own home.
  • Dropped into an Everyday Independence local hub to connect and learn from an interdisciplinary team of therapists.
