Our Response During the COVID-19 


Epic Rehabilitation is a registered Covid Safe Workplace. We are currently doing community home visits with screening measures in place.

As an alternative to home visits we also offer telehealth either via phone or video appointments as an option.

Services we can offer 
  • Functional Assessments
  • Assistive Technology/Equipment needs
  • Housing Assessment (SDA and SIL)
  • Cognitive and Upper limb retraining programs
  • Home Modifications
  • Independent Living Training 
Safety & Hygiene
All our staff are Degree Qualified Health Professionals with a strong understanding of infection control. All staff have additionally undertaken the Dept of Health Corona-19 Infection control training.

Our therapists will be calling you prior to any home visit or appointment and will ask you some screening questions. These screening questions are to ensure your safety and well as our staff as we do work with people with vulnerable health conditions. If there any potential risks to yourself or any family members we will re-schedule the visit for another time.

As a precaution and for the safety of our clients all therapists will now wear facemasks during home visits. Remember that wearing facemasks in the community is NOT an indication that we beleive people are infectious. It is to protect clients from anything that the therspist could potentially bring into your home. We also invite clients to wear masks to increase the protection for everyone.

Who We Are

Epic Rehab was conceived in 1992 when Director Karen Dempsey, as an Occupational Therapy (OT) student worked early morning shifts at Ferguson Lodge (Sydney) assisting people with spinal cord injuries prepare for their day. Engaging with the lodge’s residents and then going straight to lectures gave her a unique insight into the application of OT theory and cemented her conviction that she had chosen the right profession to make a positive impact in the lives of people with disabilities.

Since then Karen has spent many years advocating for and assisting people move to greater levels of independence, particularly those with neurological conditions. She has seen first hand how high quality and compassionate intervention can vastly improve people’s quality of life and has built a practice of highly experienced and caring OT’s who are able to juggle the personal, social and physical complexities our clients face.
