Helping Rural People Achieve

Maximising functional independence, safety and quality of life

As Occupational Therapists we aspire to assist people to maximise their functional independence, safety and improve quality of life.

Abilities Occupational Therapy can provide a complete home based service intended at overcoming barriers that limit daily living or inpatient interventions aimed at ensuring safe and effective patient discharges into the community.

We will complete a thorough assessment of each client and can develop and implement an appropriate intervention/care plan as required.

Creation of Abilities Occupational Therapy

In 2010, Occupational Therapists Skye Quin and Carly Clarke were out walking their babies thinking about how they could re-enter the workforce. They wanted to provide quality client centred interventions but in a work place that was flexible and fitted around family life. It was identified that there was a need to offer private occupational therapy to rural South Australians. From these early discussions whilst strolling, Abilities Occupational Therapy Service was born.

The business has steadily grown along with their families and now covers a large part of rural SA and the northern suburbs of Adelaide.

In 2022, long term senior occupational therapist, Tim Gransbury, joined Carly and Skye as a part owner of Abilities OT.

At present, 12 occupational therapists and four administration/finance staff proudly wear the Abilities OT logo, all endeavouring to provide this quality and efficient service to our adult population base.
