Our physiotherapists regularly perform home visits during which they assess and treat the patient in the comfort of their own home. Home visits are aimed at providing a service to individuals with chronic health problems, those who are too ill or incapacitated to travel. Some of the common conditions we treat in the home setting are Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons, Orthopaedic conditions such as total hip or knee replacements, falls and balance problems and palliative care for positioning and passive exercise.
Some of the common reasons for patients availing of this service 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
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.
Advice & Recommendations – Once your assessment is complete our therapist will provide you with detailed advice and recommendations in order for you to get the most successful outcome.
Treatment Plan – Follow-up treatments and a reassessment date are then scheduled in order to measure the effectiveness of your rehabilitation. Our therapists provide updates on progress to family members if required with continuous consultation in relation to best practice and probable outcomes.
