Accessing Physiotherapy

Our boutique Physiotherapy services are delivered to individuals at their home, as well as our work within residential aged care to help people live enriching lives!

We recruit lovely Physiotherapists who really love their work and we believe it shows in the holistic improvements we strive for. We offer:

  • Private home visits
  • NDIS participants
  • Rehabilitation programs
  • Empathy as well as therapy

We work with patients to perform holistic, evidence-based rehabilitation based exercises to improve physical capacity (strength, mobility, reflexes, balance, endurance) and manage pain.

What Our Physios Do

The initial assessment is to look at the environment, review the person’s medical history, medications, and perform functional tests to identify deficiencies.

Following the assessment, we’ll set realistic and meaningful goals and prepare a personalised treatment plan (or formalised NDIS plan) and work towards those goals together. The plan will include:

  • Goal setting
  • Frequency of sessions
  • Expected engagement length. We strive to be able to reduce the frequency of sessions, however, at times, a long term engagement is beneficial
  • The prescription of exercises (may be performed individually, or with a carer)
  • Information on how to progress the exercise therapy
  • Recommendations for assistive equipment or Occupational Therapy that may be beneficial

As an example, we may test endurance by performing a six-minute walk test together. Or simply record the time it takes the patient to sit and stand 5 times.

These tests provide baseline measurements so we can reassess and understand the effectiveness of our therapy.

Physiotherapy FAQ

  • What does evidence-based rehabilitation mean?

    Evidence-based Physiotherapy means providing healthcare that is supported by research.

    Research suggests that cancer patients who are recovering from chemotherapy have better outcomes when Physiotherapy and exercise are included in their rehabilitation.

    There are many studies to prove exercise-therapy leads to benefits for mood levels and mental health, which is vital for our overall health and quality of life.

    These benefits are particularly important for Australia’s aging population and those living with a disability.

  • What times are available for a Physiotherapy home visit?

    We operate between the hours of 9am and 6pm.

    If we’re needed outside of these hours, please contact us to see what we can do to help.

  • Can you provide an explanation on how your services work?

    Step 1 – Who We Work With

    We help adults (over 18) who are living with physical and/or neurological disabilities.

    Step 2 – Lodge a Referral

    Please submit a referral directly or contact us with any questions you may have.

    After we receive a referral or contact enquiry we will respond within 24 hours and organise the first assessment within a week.

    One of our lovely Physiotherapists will meet the person at a mutually beneficial time. Family and/or support staff are welcome to be present.

    Step 3 – Services

    We do an extensive initial assessment to ensure best patient outcomes for the short and long term.

    If the person is an NDIS participant, we help them submit relevant documentation to the NDIS for funding of Physiotherapy or acquiring Assistive Technology (equipment).

    We work with the participant on their Physiotherapy journey towards their meaningful goals.

    One beautiful aspect of our physiotherapy service is the companionship between our clinicians and patients.

    Through dedication and holistic care, we can really reach new heights together!

    Step 4 – Pricing Information

    We like to help you plan for your service and the long-term costs that go with it, as much as possible.

    This information can be provided during the initial assessment.

    This includes calculating funding from the NDIS, researching equipment providers, Medicare rebates and other variables that make it difficult to forecast the costs of the services.

Trust, compassion & care are our core values, we look forward to working towards your goals with you.
