Allied health assistants are valuable members of the healthcare team who work under the supervision of qualified allied health professionals, such as occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech pathologists, or psychologists. They provide support and assistance in various therapeutic interventions and rehabilitation programs aimed at improving the health and well-being of individuals living with disabilities. Here’s an overview of what an allied health assistant does and how they might be able to help.
Direct Client Support – Allied health assistants work directly with clients, implementing therapeutic activities, exercises, and interventions prescribed by the supervising allied health professional. They assist individuals with disabilities in carrying out rehabilitation exercises, practicing daily living skills, or using assistive devices and equipment.
Personal Care Assistance – Allied health assistants may provide personal care assistance to individuals with disabilities, including assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming, and toileting. They ensure the client’s safety, comfort, and dignity while promoting independence and self-care skills.
Mobility Support – Allied health assistants help individuals with disabilities improve their mobility and independence in movement. They may assist with transfers, positioning, and mobility aids such as wheelchairs, walkers, or crutches, following prescribed techniques to prevent injuries and promote proper body mechanics.
Exercise and Rehabilitation Programs – Allied health assistants assist in the implementation of exercise and rehabilitation programs designed to improve strength, flexibility, coordination, and functional abilities in individuals with disabilities.
