Patrick is an Occupational Therapist within Evolving Potential and Potential Ability working across the lifespan with clients and their families in Murray Bridge, the Adelaide Hills and Southern Adelaide fulltime.
Patrick completed a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy at the University of South Australia graduating in 2019 and did his placement with Evolving Potential.
Patrick is interested in working with and alongside people in their own environment rather than in an acute setting and believes community occupational therapy truly enables participation in everyday activities resulting in maximised independence and enhanced wellbeing. He loves that occupational therapy allows him the opportunity to be creative and imaginative in catering therapeutic interventions to specific clients. Patrick also likes getting to know clients and helping them to tap into and maximise their strengths and capacities. This then makes it possible for people to achieve independence and to enjoy life to its fullest – which in turn makes him love his job!
Patrick loves spending time outside, preferably by the beach where he grew up, or playing sport with friends, and loves surfing to relax and unwind after a busy week. A very social person, Patrick values time with family and friends. Or pretty much anyone… Patrick admits he’ll talk to anyone, anywhere, at any time!
Patrick says he has always been, and always will be, a child at heart – and can match it with any child on Disney or Pixar movies… any challengers?
