Home visits are available from Zoomers’ Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists.
Home physiotherapy care can be helpful following surgery or unexpected injury to help you through the early recovery period. The Physiotherapist will help you learn how to use walkers, crutches and canes safely in the house and up/down stairs. Appropriate activities and exercises will be reviewed. The Physiotherapist will also be able to teach you how to use pain self-management strategies at home.
A home visit from a Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist can also provide you with detailed information regarding the safety and accessibility of your home. The Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist may make suggestions regarding adaptive devices for safety (ie: bathroom safety items) and function (ie: kitchen utensil adaptation); the Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist can also review how and where to access these aids in the community.
Please note a mileage surcharge will be applied for clients who live beyond a 10km radius of Zoomers Physiotherapy & Health Solutions’ location at 7037 Mumford Rd, Halifax NS.
