Values

At Driving Well Occupational Therapy our two core, encompassing values include:

 

Safety

  • Our client's, community and staff safety are paramount - safety trumps everything. Drivers must be safe to drive; modifications must be safe and fit-for-purpose. We NEVER compromise on our client's safety.

Personal touch

  • We strive to be kind in all dealings with clients and key stakeholders.

  • We are compassionate, we listen, we care, we communicate, we understand, we are honest, we are authentic.

  • When delivering bad news, “clear is kind” and we strive to handle this with compassion and integrity.

  • At Driving Well Occupational Therapy, we love what we do – working with people with medical conditions, injuries and disabilities to keep them driving, get them back to driving, or get them into their own vehicle. This is the most satisfying and rewarding thing for us, and gives us the motivation to keep going – the “why factor”! We celebrate these wins. Check out our Why Factor Gallery to see some of our wins.
