Enabling better lives for people with disabilities or health conditions

If you're supporting or caring for someone with a disability or health condition, we can help. We provide personalised care to help adults maintain their independence and keep doing the things they love.

All our plans are designed to be responsive to the individual's needs and what's most important to them. Our support includes an assessment in the client's home, which guides the design of a plan and our recommendations to support independence and wellbeing.

We can help with 

  • Exercises to support balance, strength, or mobility
  • Problems with food and eating
  • Strategies and equipment to help with completing everyday activities
  • Fine motor skills
  • Home set-up and equipment to promote safe independent living
  • Falls prevention
  • Mobility assistance, e.g. walkers
  • Driving assessments
  • Neurological conditions

Our team includes Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Dietitians, Speech Language Therapists, Registered Nurses and Psychologists. Our physiotherapy services are available in clinic or via telehealth.

Our private packages mean you don't have to wait to receive comprehensive care and advice. By providing the right supports and services, we help our clients continue to live an enriching and enjoyable life. If you're not able to be there in person,  telehealth can be used to include whānau or support persons in assessments and meetings.

What to expect

Our experienced team are empathetic, caring and respectful. We understand that everyone has different goals and will work with you to achieve yours at your own pace. Our private packages mean you don't have to wait for support to make your life easier.

At the start of your assessment, we'll talk about why you chose to get in touch with us. Your consultant will then ask some questions to understand your goals and what you'd like support with. They may ask about your existing supports, lifestyle, health concerns, family and community activities, and how you're going with completing daily tasks and activities at home. Your therapist may observe you carrying out some everyday tasks or evaluate you to help them provide recommendations.

As part of the initial meeting, your therapist will give you basic strategies, education to support your health and wellbeing, and recommendations.

These recommendations may include further individual sessions with an Occupational Therapist, Physio, Dietitian, Speech-Language Therapist or Psychologist. They might also recommend exercise programs, equipment for your home to aid you in completing your daily activities, further assessments, or a referral to another professional.

APM staff can travel to you and complete the assessment in your home environment, and we make it easy for whānau or support persons to be involved every step of the way.
