Bringing Allied Health to the Better Caring platform

Allied Health physiotherapist with Better Caring client

The Better Caring platform was designed to give clients more choice and control around their care and support needs. That support now includes Allied Health.

There are many reasons clients might need the support of a physiotherapist, occupational therapist, speech pathologist or psychologist.

Our client, 102-year old Eileen Kramer, chose a physiotherapist to work with her so she can continue living out her love for dance. An occupational therapist can help an ageing family member assess their home, making it safer and more comfortable so they can continue living at home. For children, an OT can assist in improving their daily living activities such as eating, sleeping, play, school and learning. Speech pathologists can help clients communicate, or swallow food and drink safely. Psychologists work with clients or families in adapting to changing circumstances. They can also assess cognitive and behavioural functions, or levels of disability and support needs.

Choosing your own Allied Health practitioner through Better Caring brings you continuity of treatment and enables you to build a relationship with your chosen therapist. In negotiating an hourly rate, you will also get more hours of therapy than going through a practice or provider.

Three ways to make the most of the Better Caring platform:
  • If you’re already working with an allied health specialist, you can bring them to the Better Caring platform. Our platform can accommodate physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech pathologists and psychologists. This means you’ll be able to negotiate a competitive hourly rate and access more hours of therapy.
  • If you’d like to find out if there is a therapist in your area, search here now. We currently only have therapists in the Sydney area but this is growing.
  • If you’re a physiotherapist, occupational therapist, speech pathologist or psychologist, you can grow your Allied Health business by joining our platform. Demand is growing across Australia. You will be able to create your own professional profile, choose the clients you want to work with and negotiate a competitive hourly rate.
