Wings Wellbeing Centre
Wings Wellbeing Centre at Headway ABI is transforming the lives of people with an Acquired Brain Injury on the Gold Coast. Under the expert guidance of clinical exercise physiologist Scott Painter, this remarkable facility is geared towards achieving maximum independence, function and general wellbeing.
Along with state-of-the-art equipment such as the ICARE Elliptical Trainer and Jintronix gaming therapy software, Wings rehabilitation and recovery sessions are developed specifically for the individual and focused on optimal health, ability and quality of life.
Can I access Wings Wellbeing Centre?
If you have suffered a brain injury, Wings Wellbeing Centre, as a registered NDIS provider, should be able to help you. As is the case with Headway ABI, the Wings Wellbeing Centre can be accessed through your NDIS Plan.
If you do not have an NDIS Plan, you may be eligible if:
- you are an Australian resident under the age of 65
- you have a permanent disability
Medicare: Tell your GP that you would like to consult an exercise physiologist through a Chronic Disease Management plan. This service is a Bulk Bill category and you will be entitled to a rebate through Medicare.
Private health: Ask your health fund if you are covered for exercise physiology. If so, you can access Wings Wellbeing Centre and claim the visit – or part of it – through your fund.
