What do our Habit Coaches (Allied Health Assistants) do?
Healthcare assistant responsibilities involve supporting practitioners to implement therapy plans. This enables people with disabilities to build their routines and skills between regular therapy sessions.
Here’s what some of our habit coaches did last week:
Worked alongside a practitioner 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
Supported a person to make breakfast, do laundry and create a grocery list, then accompany them to the supermarket
Dropped into an Everyday Independence local hub to connect and learn from the therapy team.
