LifeTec Australia will be celebrating the opening of the new LifeTec Access Point in Toowoomba, Queensland on Thursday the 1st of June from 4.30pm – 6.45pm. The Access Point is co-located with Aidacare and is situated in the heart of Toowoomba’s CBD at 259 James Street. The access point will allow people to access LifeTec’s information services without traveling to Brisbane, with the aim of helping people from all walks of life to keep doing the things they love and remain in their homes for longer and safer.
James Barrientos, CEO of LifeTec Australia announces “We’re excited about the benefits LifeTec’s Toowoomba Access point will bring people in the Darling Downs and Southwest region. It will provide an opportunity for people to imagine and explore the possibilities enabled by assistive technology (AT), choose correct solutions to achieve their aspirations, and learn ways to optimise benefits of their chosen AT in everyday life. We’re also pleased that the Access Point will deliver a new sense of convenience for people when accessing local AT expertise”.
The official opening of the Access Point will provide people with the opportunity to meet LifeTec’s health professionals and learn about our range of AT services available. After the official launch, our health professionals will be hosting a short interactive AT tour where they will demonstrate some AT solutions such as alternative computer access, communication devices, smart assistive technology and AT for children.
The Access Point incorporates a consultation room and Skype facilities for people to talk directly with LifeTec health professionals or to have a virtual tour of LifeTec’s comprehensive Newmarket AT display centre at any time of the year.
