Our adult’s aquatic therapy program is open to adults who are registered with our adult’s services – ASSIST. Sessions are run during the year in Brisbane. Adults in regional areas of Queensland are also invited to attend the programs held in Brisbane or are offered the program when SBH Queensland teams are on regional visits.

The groups are run by occupational therapists and physiotherapists. Friends, family and carers are also welcome. The program allows clients to engage with therapists and work towards their personal goals in an aquatic environment. The program focuses on the following:
