It's official, Safe Work Practice is rebranding 2/3 of it's business to identify as 'EquipT To Thrive'.

www.equipttothrive.com.au

After much consultation with those we support, stakeholders and our team, we thought it was a necessary time in our journey to rebrand our clinical services to better reflect the vision, values and services we provide.
Launching in March 2022, you will start to see our branding emerge over the next fortnight.
We can still be contacted through the same avenues, we are still the same team, ... we even still offer the same exceptional quality service (with a new addition of Community Nursing Services to come) - we just have a new look.
Thank you for your continued support.

With the current Covid outbreak, we too have been risk managing within our team.

All frontline and support staff at SWP are double or triple vaccinated against COVID19 and influenza, wear a fit tested N95 mask and eye protection to all face to face visits, have their own unique QR code per therapist, have a rigorous entry and exit infection control procedure for all items entering the home and screening is conducted prior to any visit.

If you however feel that you would prefer Telehealth support for your assessment or therapy, we can facilitate this in most cases over Zoom and can organise this with your support staff if you have trouble with using technology.

Stay safe everyone ❤️

A bit about Safe Work Practice

Safe Work Practice was established in Adelaide in 1998, originally providing occupational health services. Now our organisation also works heavily in community and residential settings providing quality person centred supports to younger and older Australians and support the more complex spectrum of physical supports in the SA community.

We are a strong team of 4 Occupational Therapists (1 senior), 8 physiotherapists (4 seniors) and 4 therapy assistants, a therapy coordinator and 2 admin support staff.

We have an office in Mawson Lakes (if you choose to use it) to provide you space to perform administrative duties, or you may prefer to work from home.



We look forward to hearing from you!

Are they really ok?

Sometimes if we take the time to observe what someone is doing, listen to what they are saying and try to understand what is going on in another person’s life, it can make all the difference in the world.

Sometimes it’s not as simple as “yes I’m ok”, often you can help someone by reaching out to the subtle changes you might notice in someone when they feel they can’t express themselves.

Adelaide- what a day! 😳

As physically distant as we all need to be, you don’t need to feel isolated. Telehealth and video chats are some of the many ways to stay connected during lockdown.
If you or someone you know needs some guidance on how to access hardware or support for this opportunity, please reach out and we can guide you through it.

Stay safe everyone 😁 and a big shout out to those essential workers who don’t have the opportunity to stay clear of this nasty virus 💪🏻

And here we are again Adelaide 💔 if you or someone you know is struggling to meet your needs, need the bare essentials or just need to chat, PLEASE feel most welcome to reach out to one of our team. If you are isolating, you don’t need to feel “isolated”.
We can point you in the right direction to access home delivery services, to talk you or your support persons through accessing video communications for social, emotional and health connections or simply make and enjoy with you a socially distanced cup of coffee on one of our routine visits.
All of our staff are COVID aware, and we have plenty of PPE and support on board to continue to keep you and our team safe and smashing those goals 💪🏻💪🏻
Hang in there, we got this 👊
