Jennifer Dunn Occupational Therapy

About

Jennifer Dunn Occupational Therapy was born out of necessity in late 2020.  Having had the difficult task of saying goodbye to long time friend and business partner, Tamryn Vivian, I had the immense privilege's of taking the reins in both the South Peninsula and Northern Suburbs of Cape Town. 

A passion for geriatric care, I arrived in Cape Town in 2015 to join the team in the South.  After a crash course in Hands Therapy and Lymphatics, I was able to broaden my scope and became Lymphatic and Wound Care certified in 2016.  Despite being based primarily in the north as of 2016, I have remained intimately involved and passionate about our special little practice based in Noordhoek.  It was for this reason that I was more than excited at the opportunity to make and grow it as my own.

Jennifer Dunn Occupational Therapy provides services in the areas of geriatric care, lymphatics and cancer rehabilitation and hand rehabilitation.  Two dynamic therapists have joined our team that continues to be managed by our ever dependable admin wonder woman. 

We are always available to provide information regarding therapy, drop us a mail or give us a shout.
