Jennie returned to Brisbane in 2005, and brought with her rich clinical and study experiences gained from working and studying in centres for Neurological Rehabilitation in Melbourne and the United Kingdom.
Here, she immediately identified an unmet need for individuals to continue with their physical rehabilitation following hospital discharge. She commenced the operation of a Mobile Neurological Physiotherapy Service in 2006, which covered Greater Brisbane. Jennie quickly became known throughout the neurological community for her empathic patient focussed approach and her knowledge of rehabilitation and the potential for improving the care of people with neurological conditions.
MyTurn Rehabilitation was born at the end of 2007 with the location and set up of our first small Clinic in Tarragindi. This allowed for the combined approach of both clinic and mobile services, and offered a significant increase in the scope of services offered. Our team expanded as Physiotherapists with a passion for neurological rehabilitation approached Jennie looking for experience and learning opportunities. MyTurn Rehabilitation offered its first New Graduate Physiotherapist Position in 2010.
By 2012, the MyTurn Rehabilitation Family had outgrown its Foundation Clinic in Tarragindi, and moved to a larger and bright clinical setting in Balaclava Street in Woolloongabba. The organisation continued to attract the collaboration of Medical Specialists and other allied health professionals offering specialised services in the field of Neurological Rehabilitation. Group programs enjoyed considerable expansion with the additional space, and MyTurn Rehabilitation became a Provider of high-quality education for clinicians all over QLD seeking to enhance their skills in Neurological Physiotherapy.
Recognising the growth in demand for community-based rehabilitation, MyTurn Rehabilitation increased its focus on home and community-based rehabilitation over the following years, expanding out team and our Geographical reach to include all of south east Queensland.
Since that point we have identified the advantage of a blended approach to rehabilitation, utilising a clinical environment and the community environment together to build capacity and then integrate new skills and abilities into daily life situations and environments.
Today, MyTurn Rehabilitation remains a dynamic forward looking organisation seeking to integrate new and emerging technologies into our practice to strive to enhance outcomes for our patients, and to improve the quality of care for all individuals whose lives have been impacted by neurological injury.
