Physiotherapy Home Visits
What Happens in a Physiotherapy Home Visit?
One of our physiotherapists will come to you or your loved one in your own home to carry out a comprehensive assessment of your current level of physical ability. Then a treatment plan is devised to maximise your rehabilitation potential including a home exercise programme that is designed specifically for you. Follow up treatments and a reassessment date are then scheduled in order to measure the effectiveness of your rehabilitation. Our therapists provide weekly updates on progress to family members if required with continuous consultation in relation to best practice and probable outcomes.
Some of the more common reasons for patients availing of these services include:
Post-surgical patients e.g. knee or hip replacements
People who have had a fall with a significant injury
Clients who have suffered a stroke
Neurological conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease
People who have generally deteriorated due to a long illness or hospital stay
