What Happens in a Physiotherapy Home Visit?
Arrival of Physiotherapist & Assessment
One of our chartered physiotherapists will come to you or your loved one in your own home to carry out a comprehensive assessment of your injury, disability, rehabilitation potential and your overall level of physical ability and falls risk screening if appropriate. Our therapist will be wearing full PPE for your maximum safety.
Report & Recommendations
Once your assessment is complete our therapist will provide you with a detailed report and recommendations in order for you to get the most successful outcome.
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.
Our therapist may discuss with you the possibility of providing ‘live’ virtual treatments if you have the appropriate IT set up to facilitate this mode of treatment.

'My mother’s name is Margaret, and she is 86 years of age. In 2019, Margaret had major surgery and an eleven week stay in hospital due to complications. Upon her discharge from hospital in May 2019, Margaret was no longer able to stand or walk. At first she lived with me in my home, and a hoist was required to enable her to be transferred from her bed to a day chair. As soon as she was strong enough she was eager to start physiotherapy.
This is where Fit for Life came into her life in June 2019, within four months of starting to work with Margaret, she was back walking, this was achieved by weekly sessions with Fit for Life, along with their instructions to carry out various exercises to be done on a daily basis by Margaret with the assistance from family/carers.
Within six months of leaving hospital, Margaret was able to return to living in her own home. This would not have been possible without the professional services that Fit for Life provided. Margaret has continued to have weekly at home sessions with Fit for Life as she continues to see the benefits she get from her regular sessions.
I would highly recommend Fit for Life for their professionalism, along with the care and encouragement that they have shown to Margaret.'
