Vision Statement

To enhance the physical health and quality of life of our clients, by educating and treating them with high quality, comprehensive and individualized allied health services in their own home.

As clinical physiotherapists and exercise physiologists, we have seen many patients able to complete their exercises in the clinic, gym or hospital but then have difficulty transferring this to a home setting. Home physiotherapy and exercise physiology sessions allow us to work towards each individual’s goals and teach them how to achieve this within their own environment.

Eligibility

We see a range of different patients across the City of Greater Geelong, Surf Coast Shire, Bellarine Peninsula, Western Metropolitan Melbourne, Colac Otway, City of Ballarat and Golden Plains Shires, from private patients to patients referred from their Aged Care Provider under their Home Care Package.

Your sessions may be eligible for a partial or full funding via:

  • Private Health Insurance rebates

  • Government funded packages e.g. Home Care Packages

  • Medicare rebates under the Chronic Disease Management Plan (EPC)

  • DVA (eligible card holders with doctors referral

 

Please get in touch with us or your Case Manager if you would like to find out if you are eligible for physiotherapy under your Care Package.
