About Us

Professional Assistance for Living is Adelaide’s own specialist paediatric equipment supplier for children with a disability. We are an NDIS Registered Provider.

Professional Assistance for Living is owned and run by Simone Fejer, a highly experienced rehabilitation physiotherapist who has 20 years of experience in neurological rehabilitation and 8 years of experience in providing and fitting highly customised seating, positioning and mobility devices for children. Simone is passionate about providing solutions to enhance comfort and function, and improve your overall quality of life.

Simone’s vision is to provide a specialised service for both therapists and parents – to find the right solution for each child. With her clinical background and extensive experience in the disability sector, Simone can easily understand each family’s needs and situation. Her aim is to provide innovative solutions that assist kids to live a better life and empower you with the knowledge to get the most out of each product.

By far the most important aspect of our service is that we will travel to you – from metropolitan Adelaide to regional areas across SA – with all products available for trial. Whether we meet you at your home, therapist’s rooms or any other convenient location, we will work with you to find the right product, customised with the right accessories and give you the best advice.

Our extensive range includes equipment to assist seating, standing, mobility, bathroom and toilet, night time positioning and travel commodes, from popular brands such as Firefly, Jenx, Smirthwaite, Special Tomato, Tumbleforms, and many more.
