Occupational Therapist Kalgoorlie And The Rural Problem

Like any rural or poor area across the world, Occupational Therapist Kalgoorlie problems are all the same.

OT’s are needed mostly for the aged and more permanently ill and with all the young and healthy leaving areas like Kalgoorlie globally to move to the cities and leaving behind their past for a “better” life that the city might give them.

This leaves a major gap in the active and physically able persons available to the elderly and ill healthed patients to do basic things leading them to either try doing it themselves or just letting this deteriorate like roads, paths, animals, etc, and this causes their conditions to deteriorate even worse making the job of the OT even worse or even harder, as well as just trying to get to these patients.

Also as more leave, they leave the quota of patient vs health professional unbalanced and more OT’s and other needed staff are removed from where they are needed.
