Home visits are available for clients who are not able to visit the clinic for problems such as:
- Reduced Mobility
- Recovering from joint surgery
- Unable to drive
What to expect from a home visit
When you arrange a home visit it is important to set aside enough time, free from interruptions and telephone calls. Prepare a room where you will have enough privacy and make sure it is warm. Your spouse or a friend is welcome to be present if you prefer not to be alone.
The First Visit
The first visit may take as long as an hour, during which time I will make an assessment of your physical condition and if relevant your living area too. We will discuss the most appropriate treatment and if there is time, proceed to give you a treatment session as well. Any further visits are up to 3/4 hour long unless otherwise stated.
What you can do first
Before your first visit it is helpful to think through what your main problems are and what you would most like to achieve from treatment. You may wish to write down a list of questions if you feel you may forget.
I will try to arrive as promptly as possible but may be a little delayed if traffic is heavy. If there is going to be a longer delay I will ring you to let you know and if necessary re-schedule the appointment.
If you are unable to keep an appointment please call the Clinic at least 24hrs beforehand. If you do not do this you may still be charged for that appointment.
If you require a receipt of payment let the physiotherapist know. If you have Private Health Insurance, check with them in advance that you will be able to claim for the Physiotherapy Treatment.
