Now you can benefit from the experience and expertise of the very best therapists, in the comfort of your own home, and often for no more than it would cost to visit one at their clinic.
Exercise programs and equipment are tailored to your home environment. Treatments can be based on daily tasks, so be more meaningful to you, plus we can see the problems you are facing first hand.
Our whole focus is on you remaining as independent as possible making staying in your home more of a reality.
Within days of your first enquiry our therapist will visit you at home to discuss and prepare a care plan that will explain exactly what your course of treatment will consist of.
If appropriate, this will also include suggested exercises you can do on your own, and guidance for your family or carers on your care requirements between our visits.
This first visit will also include the first treatment in your plan - we want to start bringing you relief as soon as we can.
If your therapist thinks it would help you, they will also recommend that one of our other therapists speak to you. Our occupational therapist, for example can help with recommending equipment and devices to help you with daily tasks like having a shower or getting dressed, as well as suggesting ways to make your home environment safer and more accessible.
We can even supply an experienced and friendly trades person who can come and fit equipment for you.
All of our therapists are chosen for their empathy, patience, understanding, and excellent communication with a friendly approach . They have a genuine interest in your progress and well being.
Our one aim is to restore your mobility and aid your recovery, giving you back the active life you had before. We will do everything in our power to ensure this happens as quickly as possible.
We visit you at home - wherever home is.
If you are a resident in a retirement village or care home we can still help you. In fact we already visit residents in many of the care homes throughout the area so it’s possible we are helping one of your friends.
While we mostly cover the Adelaide Hills we also have patients in many of the regional townships and more remote areas.
Whether you are requiring rehabilitation or maintenance we will provide therapy sessions to help you regain or maintain physical skills like walking, getting in and out of bed and on and off your armchair as well as preventing falls by designing a functional program of exercises suited to your environment.
While you don’t need a referral from your doctor for us to see you (unless you are a DVA client) many of our patients come to us that way.
Either way we will be in constant communication with your doctor to ensure they are aware of the treatment you are receiving from us, and the progress you are making.
We have built our reputation by specialising in the treatment of a specific range of conditions. Broadly speaking our patients come to us for treatment of one of the following:
Neurological including strokes, brain injury, Parkinsons disease, multiple sclerosis, Guillain-Barre syndrome and motor neuron disease.
Physical injury as a result of falls, fractures or accidents.
Chronic conditions such as heart disease, chronic obstructive airways disease, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Recovery following surgery such as total hip or knee replacements.
Funding can be available to you through your GP. For example, if you have a condition which is considered to be chronic you may be eligible for up to 6 sessions of physio and podiatry a year.
If you are a DVA card holder, depending on the type of card you hold, you could have access to unlimited physiotherapy for as long as it is clincally indicated.
If you would like more information about these funding options or to find out if they may apply to you, please ask your GP to send us a referral. Alternatively call us and we will explain, and help you work, through the process.
