Wide Range of Services

We are proud to deliver a range of creative services and therapies to patients, families and staff in South Australian hospitals and to the broader community.

On average our nine therapists and tutors will see 289 patients per month across a wide range of health settings in groups and 1 on 1 sessions. This equates to almost 3,500 patients participating in or receiving one of our services in 2021. In many instances, patients and families receive multiple sessions as required as part of their hospitalisation or rehabilitation.
