About Our Atherton Location
Established originally in Atherton by physiotherapist Alwyn Blayse, Allied Aged Care has been providing exceptional service in healthcare for the Atherton Tablelands region since 2016. We provide high quality and client-centred Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy Services in Atherton, where we work within a residential care facility and the community. We offer home visits, gym, and pool sessions with clients of all ages, not just the elderly.
To ensure no one misses out on allied health, we take pride in servicing areas that other therapists do not go to. We provide allied health services in the Atherton region including Malanda, Yungaburra, Eacham, Tinaroo, Ravenshoe, Dimbulah, and Mareeba. We also have other teams who work in Gordonvale, Cairns and Innisfail.
We acknowledge and respect the traditional custodians and owners of this region, past and present elders and emerging, including people of the Djirrbal and Ngadjonji tribes, Yidinji and Ngajanji people, Jirrbal people, Malanbarra people and Muluridji People.
At Allied Aged Care, we pride ourselves on being part of the Atherton region’s community. Our physiotherapists and occupational therapists all live locally and are active members of the region. We are advocates for the role of physiotherapy and occupational therapy to help improve quality of life, especially in older people and those with disabilities.
We see clients in their homes, in retirement and residential aged care facilities and use the heated pool at the heated Atherton and Malanda swimming pool for hydrotherapy.
We are deeply committed to delivering a “more care” approach through our skilled therapists who work meticulously to provide essential treatments and definitive results. At Allied Aged Care we are passionate about aged healthcare and helping people with the following services:
Allied Aged Care provides a range of physiotherapy services in nursing homes, client’s homes, pools and gyms, as well as telehealth appointments.
