Home Care Physiotherapy

For patients, this service is designed in the acute and subacute aftermath of an injury with a view to an eventual transfer to in-clinic treatment. When pain and limited mobility restrict your ability to leave your home, we can offer a range of services from virtual care to in-home Physiotherapy services.

Services

  • Manual Therapy
  • Mobility / Transfers / balance training
  • Pain control/use of electrotherapeutic devices TENS
  • Acupuncture
  • Functional training or finding the safest / most efficient movements for:
    • Ambulation and balance
    • Transfers
    • Stairs
    • Reaching low/high-level surfaces

Providing in-home Physiotherapy is about more than just addressing the person; we’ll also help you find the most comfortable positioning in your environment whether for relaxation or sleep management.

Sometimes, you may require more help to manage you daily routine and we may recommend an Occupational Therapist to help you in this area.

Distinctive features

Our case coordination and management is a distinctive feature to this service; We simply call it One Service.

For the patient, One Service means moving from an in-home to in-clinic setting without interruption in obtaining necessary treatment and pain relief during this period.

One Service also means your clinical status, particular needs and continuation or progression in your exercises will already be in place when your treatment moves to a clinic setting.

One Time Assessment Fee

When transferring to in-clinic treatment, any fees for re-assessment or care coordination are already included in the initial in-home assessment.

We keep Seniors Home

By remaining home, our Elderly can enjoy and maintain a greater quality of life. Home Care Physiotherapy is more than just providing treatment. Our intervention provides you with the independence and the confidence to pursue your activities. Having purpose by completing your daily routine, household task and pursuing hobbies, brings enjoyment and meaning to life.

“We believe our services can help our elderly remain in their home, for a fraction of the cost of retirement home living “

Individualized Assessment

First we need to know your goals and interests. Our individualized assessment includes range of motion, strength, balance and mobility. We also look at your ability to perform critical activities such as reaching in high and low places and getting around within your home (basement stairs, outdoor yard etc…). Following this assessment, a detailed plan is made for you.

Pain and prior conditions

Many Seniors experience pain and movement restriction. Sometimes, this is related to a previous injury, the work you did or age related arthrosis.

Simple exercises are sometimes sufficient for improving pain control which in turn helps your mobility. Beyond the health benefits, exercise may help control or reduce medication intake. Simply learning more about your condition, appropriate exercise and pain control can go a long way in improving your independence.

Including the family

We encourage getting your family involved. Once our assessment is done, an in-person or telehealth conference can be set up, so children may participate in their parent’s care. We will review our findings, recommendations and what we feel are safe and suitable activities you can continue. We will also review exercises so you better understand their purpose and take part in the monitoring of their care.
