Who we are
At Xavier, we have a long and proud history supporting Brisbane families of children with complex disability and related health needs.
We help children and their families to live the best lives possible, as a family. We provide health supports such as nursing and allied health services through to supporting children in play and in their community giving them the opportunity to just be kids.
Our goal is to deliver the highest quality support and services to families who really need it. Families who are caring for children with complex disability and health needs, that require very tailored care.
Our multi-disciplinary team specialise in meeting these needs and have decades of experience to draw upon. We work with families throughout Brisbane the greater Brisbane region.
Sepsis can also be known as septicaemia, blood infection or blood poisoning. It occurs when what may be a simple infection progresses throughout the body and the body’s response to an infection damages its own organs and tissues. Sepsis can be caused by any type of infection – bacterial, viral or fungal.
“I find it very satisfying and rewarding when a child receives a new piece of equipment that will make their lives - and that of their families - easier. Whether it is a wheelchair, shower chair, relaxation chair or another item, the day of fitting and delivery is an exciting day for everyone.” Marie, Xavier OT

With the long and hot Brisbane summer upon us, hydrotherapy is a great way to cool down and get in some therapy. The Xavier therapy team are big advocates for hydrotherapy and the many benefits it can bring to children with disability.
