Ontario Neurological Rehabilitation: Home Care Neuro-Physiotherapy

Home Care Neuro-Physiotherapy Services – How Does It Work?

Ontario Neurological Rehabilitation services are designed to help you reach your goals and improve your quality of life. We help you to grow the skills and abilities that you need to live as independently as possible. One of the first steps is to carry out an evaluation to understand your needs, your current limitations, and your goals so that we can develop a complete care plan that covers both clinical care and the care that you receive at home.

Our therapists also team up with you, your primary doctor, surgeon, and your loved ones to develop the best care plan.

FAQ

Neuro-physiotherapy or neurological physiotherapy is a branch of physiotherapy that focuses on neurological disorders. A neurological physiotherapist has spent time learning about how to assess and treat neurological conditions, including diseases and injuries. Our neuro-physiotherapists have the education and training needed to support our patients in their rehabilitation and help them to reach their goals so that they can live the lives that they want.

Our neuro-physiotherapists have experience in a range of neurological diseases and injuries. We match all of our clients to an appropriate physiotherapist who is knowledgeable and skilled in working with patients their age and with their conditions. 

When we attend your home visit, we may bring a variety of things to enable us to assess and treat you. This may include some specialist neuro-physiotherapy treatment, such as electrotherapy machines and therabands. Assessments and treatment can often be carried out using a chair, lying on your bed, or standing.

Our home care physiotherapy service is designed to provide you with the treatment that you need in your own home. We have the highest standards for our physiotherapists to ensure your safety when they visit your home. Our physiotherapists are all PVSC (Police Vulnerable Sector Check) checked and are regulated by the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario (CPO). We maintain high standards of care to conveniently deliver treatment to you in your home.

Someone might choose to stay in bed after a hospital discharge for a variety of reasons. These reasons may be physical or they could relate to confusion or other problems. Getting up and moving around after being in the hospital can aid recovery and prevent further health issues, such as blood clots and weakness. However, it’s worrying if a loved one isn’t getting out of bed. We can visit your home and assess your parents or loved ones to determine what the problem could be and design a program of rehabilitation to help.

Our physiotherapists can visit you at home if you live in a retirement or nursing home. We are usually permitted to enter local nursing and retirement homes to provide our services. Before arranging for our physiotherapists to attend, please ask your retirement home or LTC to check if there are any restrictions or any instructions we might need to follow when visiting you.

Our physiotherapists are all training and experienced, with years of clinical experience in-home care. They are all registered with the CPO and are required to complete regular training to ensure safety while they work, such as infection control, manual handling, fire safety, and other topics.

When we first meet with you, it can take up to an hour. This includes an initial assessment and the start of your treatment. You can then discuss with your physiotherapist what length you would like your future appointments to be.

Its helpful if you have information about your condition and your medical history that will help your physiotherapist to assess you. Try to provide as much as you can relating to your condition, such as medical records from hospital or other health professionals that help to provide a full background.

Your first appointment will start with your physiotherapist listening to you, assessing you, and understanding your needs. They will then create a treatment and recovery plan that works for you and will help you to achieve your goals. You will also begin treatment, which might include hands-on physical therapy or an exercise programme.

The number of sessions you need will depend on a number of factors, including your injury or disease, your current condition, and your goals. Your physiotherapist can give you an estimate of how many visits they could make and a time frame for the length of your treatment.

We make sure that you will receive the care that you need, including connecting you with other medical professionals, primary care physicians, consultants, and other team members who are involved in your care.

If you need to cancel your appointment, please let us know as soon as you can. This enables us to offer the appointment time to another patient and rearrange your appointment if possible. We may charge a cancellation fee if you cancel less than 24 hours before your appointment. Please call our appointments line to get in touch.

Please see our fees and treatment packages to see how much you will pay for our services.

We can accept a range of payment methods to make it convenient for our clients. We can take payments over the phone or online, and we can accept cash, cheques, and debit/credit cards.

To use your insurance to pay for your physiotherapy, you will first need to pay in advance.

You can then claim back the cost of your treatment from your insurer. We are recognised by some insurance providers. You will need to provide your membership number, policy number, and other important information.

If your insurance provider fails to pay, you are responsible for covering the cost of treatment. Providing your card details is necessary as many patients will have to pay an excess copay. Please contact your insurance provider to check what your policy covers so that you’re aware before payment is required. 

There’s no need to be referred to us by your doctor if you’re paying for the treatment yourself. However, clients who pay with insurance may need a referral from their family physician. Check your policy first to see if you require a referral.

All of our physiotherapists are registered with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario. We can provide you with their registration number if desired, which you can use to check their details on the College PT website.

We secure your files according to the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario Standards.
