About Home Visits Services
We understand that some people may not be able to travel the distance to our clinic yet still require treatment and assistance from a member of our medical or therapy team.
People may need home visits for a number of reasons; sometimes people are too injured, too sick, or in too much pain to leave the house. Treatment in the home can be beneficial as the home environment can be used as part of therapy and rehabilitation process.
Our therapists regularly provide our home visit service to patients with conditions like: stroke, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease. Home therapy is also appropriate for post-surgical patients like hip or knee replacements, as well as those with falls and balance problems. Furthermore, our therapists can also advise on equipment and adaptations for the home to help reduce risk of falls and increase safety and independence.
Therapy at home allows the rest of the family to be involved in the treatment and gain a better understanding of the condition, as well as giving them an opportunity to ask the specialist any questions and also learn how they can be involved and help.
Under our Home Visit Service, we offer:
Initial investigation of the case by our healthcare coordinator which will result in referral to the therapist whom is most experienced in patient's medical condition
Initial assessment by physiotherapist/ psychologist
Follow up sessions
Education of home stuff provided by our healthcare coordinator to ensure patient has the best care at home
