Home Visiting Physiotherapists
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.

Process to Receive Physiotherapy
Step 1 – Referral
We help adults (over 18) who are living with physical and/or neurological disabilities.
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.
Step 2 – Initial Assessment
The initial assessment is to look at the environment, review the person’s medical history, medications, and perform functional tests to identify deficiencies.
We perform an extensive initial assessment to ensure best patient outcomes for the short and long term.
Following the assessment, we’ll set realistic and meaningful goals and prepare a personalised treatment plan (or formalised NDIS plan) on how to best achieve those goals.
Step 3 – Services
One of our lovely Physiotherapists will visit the person at mutually beneficial schedule. Family and/or support staff are welcome to be present.
We work with the client on their journey towards their individual goals using evidence-based Physiotherapy.
If the person is an NDIS participant, we help them submit relevant documentation to the NDIS for funding of Physiotherapy or acquiring Assistive Technology.
Step 4 – Ongoing Care
We support clients in the way they would like. Our services are not based on lock-in contracts.
One notable aspect of our physiotherapy service is the companionship between our clinicians and patients.
Through dedication and holistic care, we can reach new heights together.
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.
What is a Physiotherapy plan?
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.
How much does Physiotherapy cost?
This is variable depending on your funding scheme, or if you are private paying.
This information can be indicated over the phone and formalised 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.
