Why Arrange a Home Visit?

Arranging a home visit from a Physiotherapist may be preferable when you have difficulties getting about, are unable to drive or simply feel more comfortable in your own home.  Most Physiotherapists will see you at home if it is an emergency but are unable to treat you regularly at home. 

Physio on the Move however is dedicated to providing a home based service especially for those with long term requirements.  Many chronic health problems are managed more effectively when treatment is carried out in your home setting where practical problems can be tackled head on.  Sarah will advise you on the most suitable aids and modifications for your home situation and can supply them on a buy or rental basis. Physiotherapy at home also enables other members of the family to be involved and to gain a better understanding of your condition and how to help. 

Physio on the Moveis fully equipped with mobile Electrotherapy and Ultrasound units, treatment bed, and mobile exercise equipment.

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 may take as long as an hour and a half, during which time the Physiotherapist will make an assessment of your physical condition and if relevant your living area too.  She will discuss with you the most appropriate treatment and if there is time, proceed to give you a treatment session as well. Any further visits are an hour long unless otherwise stated.

Before your first visit it is helpful to gather together any recent medical records, X-rays and MRIs that you have, to show to the Physiotherapist when she arrives.  Think through what your main problems are and what you would most like to achieve from treatment.  Write down a list of questions if you feel you may forget, but don’t worry about it if you do as the Physiotherapist will probably expect to see you for a few sessions if not on a regular basis, during which time you can talk about any other issues that come to light.

The Physiotherapist 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 she will ring you to let you know and if necessary re-schedule the appointment. 

If you are unable to keep an appointment you must inform your Physiotherapist at least 24hrs beforehand.  If you do not do this she reserves the right to charge you for that appointment. 

If you require a receipt of payment let your Therapist know.  If you have Health Insurance, check with them in advance that you will be able to claim for the Physiotherapy Treatment.  If they require confirmation that your Physiotherapist is properly qualified and insured don’t hesitate to put them in touch.
