Country OTs changing lives
As the largest non-government employer of allied health staff in Western NSW, Marathon Health is excited to celebrate Occupational Therapy Week 2019 and highlight the great work of our ten regional occupational therapists across country NSW.
Occupational therapists (OTs) work to support people of all abilities to engage in activities they find meaningful. Marathon Health OTs support adults and children, their families and carers in a number of different ways – including under the NDIS and within specific programs.
Hayley White, Marathon Health OT, says they work across many towns in Central, Southern and Western NSW to provide people living in rural areas choice and access to an occupational therapy service as close as possible to their home – and even in their homes.

A message from our CEO

We are still maintaining physical distancing guidelines and working remotely, but will update clients and stakeholders as this changes.
What this means
- Our physical office locations are still temporarily closed; however, staff are working from virtual locations, and can still be reached via email or mobile during regular business hours
- Most of our services are available via phone and video consultations so you can access them from the comfort of your own home
- For those services where we are unable to offer phone/video consultations, our staff are ensuring regular contact and updates as to when these services can resume
