We know it's not always easy to get to a clinic.
So we offer exercise physiology at home.
Am I eligible for a home visit?
The home service is for a range of people, including those looking to improve their balance, get stronger, increase flexibility or walking ability. The exercises range from simple exercises you can perform while lying in bed, to exercises you can do in your favourite chair.
The home service is ideal for someone looking to recover from a setback such as a fall or someone looking to get stronger before undergoing surgery.
However, you may not be eligible for our home service if you:
Have suffered a recent heart attack
Have had a fracture in the last 6 weeks
Have unstable angina
What is the process?
Step 1: Initial Assessment
All clients require an initial assessment by our Accredited Exercise Physiologist. This is our opportunity to understand you and your health needs. The session is approximately 45-60 mins. During this session, we ask you about your medical history and do a strength, balance and flexibility assessment.
As a client, you may refer yourself for a home assessment, have a family member help you, or have your health care professional complete a referral form.
Step 2: Program design
We design a home exercise program for you based on the findings of the initial assessment. We provide your GP with a copy of this program along with a summary of our findings.
Step 3: Program delivery
We help you perform your specific exercise program by providing 1:1 supervised sessions at home. This means we make sure you perform the right exercise in the right way and we can make adjustments to the program if and when needed.
The frequency and duration of these sessions vary depending on your healthcare needs and goals. We aim to slowly progress you towards a self-managed exercise program so you can move towards your health goals even when we are not here.
Step 4: Reassessment
We conduct regular reassessments to ensure you are continuing to progress or maintain your health. The frequency of these assessments varies between 3, 6 or 12 months depending on your health.
Do you bulk-bill home visits?
Yes, we offer bulk-billed exercise physiology sessions at your home. If you have your doctor's referral for exercise physiology, you only need to pay the $15 call-out fee.
You can find a referral form here.
Can you do a home visit even if I don't have any equipment?
Yes! We design an exercise program to best fit your needs. This includes making use of equipment that you already have such as chairs and tables. We also bring our own equipment which you can use during the session or buy for later use.
