                        This service is often utilised by patients that have difficulty visiting clinics or for those that are experiencing difficulty performing everyday tasks at home. Physiotherapy assessments and treatment in the comfort of your own home.

                            People that benefit  from a home assessment and treatment are those that have difficulty getting in and out of bed, in and out of chairs, up and down stairs, lack confidence to walk outside on their own and those that require assistance with everyday activities such as washing and dressing. 

             By seeing you in your own home, your physiotherapist will be able to witness the problems that you are experiencing with everyday activities. From this our physiotherapist can advise you on walking aids and / or home adaptations to enable you to regain or retain your independence and increase your quality of life.

                          An initial assessment is always completed to ensure your condition is accurately treated and your goals a effectively achieved.

                           The home can also be assessed for hazards to prevent the risk of falls.

                          The physiotherapist will outline a treatment plan that they feel will maximize you recovery.

                         Intervention that may consist of manual/hands on therapeutic techniques, modalities to help manage pain and inflammation, and prescribed exercises and environmental recommendations may be provided.

                        The therapist may also recommend future visits if this is assessed to be necessary.
