Karlee Naumann

Accredited Exercise Physiologist

Services Provided
Tailored exercise programs, exercise delivery and educational advice for clients living with chronic disease or disability. 

About Karlee

Due to the impacts of COVID19, our daily life has been dramatically altered. With social isolation and disrupted work/life balance, this can often lead to negative impacts both physically and mentally. Regular physical activity is important not only for improving or maintaining physical health (muscle strength, balance, coordination and fitness), but also for supporting our immune function and mental health. As an Exercise Physiologist, my main priority is to support my clients to achieve adequate physical activity levels in these trying times. I am able to support clients to through a variety of means including:

  • Home exercise program creation: I am able to create a tailored exercise program based on your needs and goals. This includes creating a program with pictures and writing, and/or a video-based program for you to complete at home.
  • Telehealth services: Assessments, exercise and review sessions can be conducted over telehealth if participants have access to a device and internet.
  • Face to face services may be possible via a home visit or at a local park/open space. This service does come with potential risks (for both participant and therapist), and while this risk is reduced as much as possible, it is only recommended on a case by case assessment.

If you feel that this support would be beneficial to you, then I would love to discuss this with you further.

About Deanna

Recently there have been many changes in people’s daily lives due to the Corona Virus. The biggest changes are that many activities that we normally engage in have closed and complying with social distancing restrictions has become a new way of life.

This means that we are all at home more and less able to socialise, as an Occupational Therapist, there are a number of ways that I can help support you through this time, this could be done by virtual means such as video calls, skype or Zoom:

  • If you feel that you need increased support or different services within your plan, I can assist you by completing an assessment and report. This can then be used within a plan review to help you to obtain the needed supports.
  • Make suggestions and source assistive devices that you may need around the home, these could be things such as tools to help you get dressed with more ease or specialised cushions for comfort since you will be seated more than usual.
  • Asses the home environment via video and see what may be needed to support you while you are at home more than usual.
  • Work with you to develop short term goals over the next few weeks or months that you could work towards while complying with the current social distancing restrictions. These goals could be around increasing your independence with tasks at home or engaging in a different leisure activity within the home.

If you feel that this support would be beneficial to you, then I would love to discuss this with you further.

About Sue Baker

As you are all aware with the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are all needing to take protective measures to keep healthy.

In the interest of not potentially spreading or catching the virus, many services are temporarily suspending face-to-face services. We are very mindful of the fragile state of health that many clients may be in, and do not want to cause any unnecessary distress.

We have developed a telehealth service and will be happy to provide services to you in this way, if you wish.

NB: If you already have a physiotherapy provider, please do discuss this option with them in the first instance, as they will be more familiar with you and are the most appropriate people to provide the service to you. This offer is only made as a back-up option for Determined2 clients.

Benefits are:

  • Research has proven that telehealth services are just as effective as face to face contact
  • We can talk to you and answer any questions you have, as often as you like
  • We can monitor your condition, either by phone or video link
  • If you are at your computer a lot, we can advise about ergonomic workstation set-up
  • We can devise and update any programmes you may need
  • Costs will be less as we will not be charging for travel
  • Consultations will also probably be shorter and therefore more cost effective
  • No special equipment is needed, and you won’t need to download any apps.
  • NDIS will cover costs for this service.
  • No wait list for new clients.
  • Telehealth can be used while you are waiting to get services from a more local therapist

If you think you would like to avail of this service, please do contact me and I will be very happy to discuss it with you.
