We Are pleased to present our New AND REFRESHED logo!
We feel change is inevitable, and we pride ourselves on maintaining currency in our work, evolving and adapting to always meet the needs of our service users. For anybody who has had any recent exposure to healthcare or the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), you will understand it has been a significant change to the way healthcare and disability services are provided, and as this is the space we’re working in, it has had a significant effect on the provision of our services.
The name ‘Occupational Therapy Services Group’ was introduced in 2011 and was primarily devised as an umbrella to connect the different businesses (service divisions) that were operating from the same clinic. Its primary purpose was to link us operationally, and prior to 2020 it has never been used for clinical service provision. But as we have now integrated our staff and services, we feel it’s time to integrate our name and logo!
We believe, although simple, it is more refined, whilst still containing the spirit of the original logos. For us, it’s an evolution of a new era, and that’s what we feel we’re experiencing this past year; but what we’re most excited about is that we now have a combined look for all of our DVA, NDIS, Rehabilitation, Driving and other services!
We have elected to use the contemporary terms ‘Skill Building’ and ‘Assistive Technology’ rather than ‘Rehabilitation’ and ‘Equipment’, because we feel these labels better represent how our services are funded, what services are provided, and reflects the language we are now using in our daily reporting and treatments.
We asked our participants what they thought and they loved it too! John-Paul thought it was “a bit fancy” and “a lot more modern” whilst also needing to comment “Wooh! Your (Chris’) office is VERY messy!”... And when we asked Ethan, he thought it was "still similar to the old logo” and quite “website-ish”, saying “it looks 10 years into the future”!
If you haven’t already, over the next few months you’ll notice this new visual look in our website, uniforms, marketing, reports and other products. Although to some of you it may appear we’re changing our name, we’re really just combining our services to improve our service provision. But ultimately it’s still us. We’re still a WA owned and operated family business. You can still contact and speak directly to your occupational therapist or the business owner. We are still experienced at what we do, and still provide comprehensive specialty services. We’re still OT run and OT led. Our services are still accessible and cost effective. We’re still leaders in our service areas and still involved in shaping practice through policy development. We still have lived experience of disability and our staff are still the same year to year and provide innovative services.
What we are saying, is that while this is a significant change, our core beliefs have not changed. We are proud of our history and what has been achieved since evolving from a sole practitioner more than 18 years ago.
Whilst we will appear a little different, our focus remains on providing the best services to our clients, and it is hoped that the changes made coming into this New Year will enhance your experience of our services.
We will let you know when our website has been updated and as we roll out new initiatives over the course of the year!
But for now, thank you for being a part of our OT Services Group community!
