Occupational Therapy on the West Coast

Notia Occupational Therapy is a comprehensive and compassionate OT service making a real difference.

West Coast communities are often far flung and remote, so we offer flexible OT services to keep you safe, secure and independent in your own home.

We don’t fly or drive in from Christchurch or Dunedin… Notia OT is based in Grey Valley. So…local then.

Whether you or a loved one needs support with mobility, accessibility, medical driving assessments or anxiety management, Notia Occupational Therapy offers a comprehensive OT service to consumers throughout the West Coast.

“A Physiotherapist will help you get to the door…an Occupational Therapist will help you go through it”

Hands on assistance from Notia Occupational TherapyOur Goals

Notia Occupational Therapy recognises each consumer as an individual. We take a holistic and non-judgemental approach to OT, asking the right questions to create meaningful solutions.

We work with a range of different local and national agencies navigating potentially complex interventions. Often we are asked to revisit and bring our energy to seemingly stuck and protracted processes.

We can give a fresh professional view and work with all parties to bring about a satisfactory conclusion for the consumer.

Notia OT takes the time to build relationships with other local community enterprises in the health field. See a few of our colleagues here

And… because we’re a private and independent service provider, we offer our services in a timely manner –

So…. no sitting on a waiting list for months then!

Your Expectations?

Ok, so you have made a referral… what happens next?

  • Once we receive a referral, Notia OT will contact you to talk about the details and your needs and funding
  • We will then, if appropriate, make an Initial Assessment appointment, usually about 1hr long and come to see you
  • Based on the Initial Assessment, we will then recommend a course of action or intervention to you or advise as to why we are unable to assist you.
  • If you agree with our proposal, then we will ask you to sign our Terms of Engagement form and confirm that appropriate funding is in place
  • And that’s it..! We will provide reports as required to keep you informed and answer any questions you have.
