I have a son with extreme behavioural issues. The incredible team at Sunshines have tailored a therapy plan for him and we are seeing amazing success. I have received more help here than I have anywhere in the allied health industry. They have made us feel welcome loved and supported through our journey. My son’s successes is based on the services sunshines has provided. I cannot speak highly enough of Kayla, Jamie and the team.

The Senior Adults OT assists me with understanding concepts, and gives me the tools to build my skills to meet my goals. I have been working with this OT for the part 6 months and I feel more confident in my day to day living. I have also seen the Physio and Speech Therapy team and have been impressed. I would highly recommend these services to others.

My son absolutely loves Sunshines, he always asks how long until his next visit, not many places I spoke to take older kids nearing teenage years but Sunshines was no problem. It appears hard to get in unless you book well in advance because they are busy but I think been busy says enough in itself - couldn’t be happier with this wonderful company and I love the atmosphere when you walk in- keep up the great work ☺️ Thank you for all your hard work Kate Warner
