"Equally important to what our clients do during their physiotherapy session is what they do the rest of the week! The time to teach, listen and learn is imperative to positive outcomes. It all takes patience, clear communication and constant reinforcement through a supportive relationship between the client and physiotherapist; never underestimate what people can do for themselves!"
Access At Home Physiotherapy was founded in 2001 in response to a growing need for high quality rehabilitation programs for individuals with mobility challenges due to accidents, various medical conditions, strokes or age related issues.
In a time where demand is at its greatest, sufficient community programs are not available. Access to OHIP funded facilities is becoming more difficult and frequently the journey to and from a clinic or hospital can be so challenging that it can negate much of the benefit gained from the therapeutic intervention. Surgical wait lists are long and hospital stays are short. The senior population is rapidly growing and people want to safely remain in their own home as long as possible. Chronic disease management is essential to minimize hospital admissions, decrease visits to doctor's offices and to free up expensive hospital beds.
Access At Home Physiotherapy has grown into one of the region's largest and most respected private home based physiotherapy practices; they work extensively with Automobile Insurance Clients, Rehabilitation Companies, Private Clients, Hospital Discharge Planners and supplement physiotherapy services provided by the Champlain Community Care Access Center. Each member of this dynamic team has a broad base of rehabilitation experience, is registered with the Ontario College of Physiotherapy, is a registered authorizer for ADP, is committed to continuing education and has developed extensive expertise in home based physiotherapy.
Highly experienced in neurology, trauma, geriatrics, orthopedics and respiratory specialties, the expertise of this team permits them to embrace a holistic therapeutic treatment approach with a genuine passion for the entire spectrum of evidence based physiotherapy practice.
Much can be done outside the institutional settings of hospitals, clinics and rehab centers; a broad experience base is highly advantageous in working with the complicated situations and multifaceted medical conditions encountered at home. Self management should be a strong component of all physiotherapy programs. If individuals understand their body and how their injury or condition affects their present functional status, they will have much better outcomes.
