SKILLED. DETERMINED. PASSIONATE.
Joanne Mak, founder of My Rehab Team, is passionate about enabling people to be excited about their potential through rehabilitation. Working in community rehabilitation for many years in the UK has grounded her strong belief in the significant benefits of community based service. The completion of a Masters degree in Rehabilitation further consolidated her view and understanding.
In 2010, she returned back to Brisbane to be closer to her family. She worked briefly for MS Queensland. Subsequent to that, she worked in the outpatients rehabilitation service at the Ipswich Hospital. It was during those months that she noticed a need for more affordable neurological rehabilitation service, which is delivered in a mobile, multi-professional manner and is being made efficient and seamless by the sharing of skills between professionals – trans-disciplinary practice. The service also needs to respond to the changing needs by being patient-driven in design. This gave birth to My Rehab Team.
My Rehab Team has a vision to empower people toward an increasing sense of ability, confidence and positivity.
Our mission is to deliver high standard and accessible rehabilitation in a client-led team manner. .
Our passion is neurological and community based rehabilitation which is research/evidence based.
