Apricus Health

We are Apricus Health, a client focused, allied health practice committed to providing high quality care across all stages of life. We work with a diverse community of clients from children and young adults right through to older people, including anyone living with a disability or requiring upper limb rehabilitation.

Formerly operating as Helping Hands and Access Therapy Services, we have come together as Apricus Health to create a more robust and holistic allied health service for our clients and region. We are proudly local, having provided therapy services to Townsville and North Queensland for a combined 25 years.

We are dedicated to:

Whole Life
From paediatrics to aged support, we address health challenges across the lifespan. We instil values within our team that mean your continued quality of life and independence are the centre of everything we do.

Whole Family
Our services, technology and expertise are here to help your whole family achieve their health goals. From a custom-made splint for your daughter’s soccer injury, to a home visit to assess and provide solutions for your aging parent.

Hand Therapy (OT and Physio)

Our dynamic therapy team of occupational therapists and physiotherapists are here to help you at every stage of your recovery and get you back to doing the things you love. Whether you’ve fallen and broken your wrist, worked a little bit too hard on the computer, popped your finger while catching a cricket ball or simply finding your fingers don’t move quite the way they use to, we’re here to help.

Occupational Therapy - Paediatrics

Sometimes children experience difficulty managing or participating in everyday activities such as writing, getting dressed, school, sport, playing or socialising with peers, and need additional support. Our paediatric service is available for children and young adults aged between 0 – 18 years of age. We work with young people and their parents directly, as well as teachers, early educators, other allied health professionals and specialists.

Occupational Therapy - Disability

We work with children, youth and adults with a variety of disabilities, both physical and cognitive, to help them do what they want and need to do each day. The ability to manage daily activities has a positive impact on an individual’s wellbeing and our role is to help children and adults find their strengths.

Occupational Therapy - Aged Support

Our aged support service is available for anyone over the age of 65, who is experiencing difficulties with tasks in their home, accessing the community or participating in activities they enjoy. We work with people directly, as well as their carers, other community organisations and family members.

Occupational Therapy - Mental Health

At Apricus Health we offer mental health services for all age groups including children, youth, young adults, adults and older people. We provide services to clients through NDIS or private funding and services are tailored to suit the individual’s needs and goals and incorporates one-on-one support.

Occupational Therapy - Rehabilitation

At Apricus Health we understand that living with painful conditions such as injury or chronic illness has an immense impact on your quality of life, your sense of wellbeing, motivation, and both your physical and mental health. Which is why we invest in innovative therapy solutions, such as red light therapy and InterX therapy, to enhance the treatment outcomes for all our patients.
