Monday 15 April 2024

In light of recent closures of local allied health services, Your Best Life Disability and Health Services, a cornerstone in the Sunshine Coast community, has pledged to bolster specialised allied health services to accommodate the influx of residents to the region.

Today, CEO of Your Best Life Debbie Blumel said, “Our commitment to serving the needs of our community has never been stronger.  We are steadfast in our resolve to expand our top-quality services and eagerly anticipate meeting increasing regional demand.”

Since the NDIS started, Your Best Life has demonstrated remarkable growth, establishing five additional centres alongside its flagship facility in Nambour.  Last financial year, the organisation served greater than 2700 clients across its operations spanning the Sunshine Coast, Gympie, and Moreton Bay regions.  Ms Blumel emphasised, “This is a testament to the trust that the community places in our not-for-profit organisation and the pivotal role we play.”

In response to the recent recommendations from the NDIS Review and the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability, which propose significant changes to registration and funding, Ms Blumel affirmed, “Your Best Life is well-positioned to navigate these changes, with our streamlined operations and robust quality assurance measures, we are confident that our allied health services can serve the community.”

Your Best Life, a registered NDIS provider with a legacy of 36 years in the Sunshine Coast region, offers a comprehensive suite of disability and health services, including psychology, behaviour support, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, and speech therapy.

The organisation also extends its reach to community mental health services and supported independent living, in addition to operating NDIS plan management supports under the Your Choice Plan Management banner.

Integral to the company’s success are its more than 120 local employees, comprising professionals, administrative staff, and support workers.  Ms Blumel encouraged passionate locals seeking employment with a positive and friendly environment to reach out for an interview.

“As long as there is a need within our community, Your Best Life will remain steadfast in our commitment to supporting local communities.  We are here for you, and we won’t let you down,” reassured Ms Blumel.
