At Aged Care Physiotherapy, our mission is to enhance the well-being of aged care facility residents by offering specialised and tailored physio, OT, and exercise physiology services.
Founded in 2013 and now with 10+ years of aged care experience and about 20 facilities on board, Aged Care Physiotherapy embarked on a mission to revolutionise allied health services within the aged care sector.
Since our inception, we have been committed to enhancing the quality of life for aging individuals residing in aged care facilities. Our journey began with a vision to bridge the gap in comprehensive and tailored allied health services uniquely designed for the specific needs of aged care residents.
Our team of experienced and licenced therapists is dedicated to providing the highest quality care to our clients.
Physiotherapy assessments to ensure residents’ optimum transfers and mobility needs are identified while maintaining OH&S for care staff.
Designing care plans to improve and maintain functional independence and maximise their quality of life, reflecting their current potential and assistance requirement.
Risk assessments and prevention plan to minimise incidents and risk of injuries like falls risk assessment and management, restrain risk assessment and management and pressure area risk assessment and management.
Flexible Therapy Programs to ensure that residents remain pain-free as far as possible and achieve their functional independence goals.
Equipment assessment and prescriptions to ensure that residents get the best available equipment while keeping it cost-effective for residents and the facility.
FOR FACILITY STAFF
Continuous ongoing education and support with a difference. We believe that a classroom session is not enough for care staff to understand the details of resident care especially when it comes to manual handling, fall prevention and pressure area care. We, therefore, work with care staff to ensure that they understand and learn best practices. Our voluntary educational services to facilities have always been applauded as we have successfully achieved better staff compliance.
FOR THE FACILITY
We understand that facilities face an uphill task of being compliant with various Federal and State bodies like accreditation agencies and Worksafe Victoria. We, therefore, assist facilities with regular quality checks to ensure compliance with accreditation standards. We also assist with OH&S compliance by conducting regular audits for lifting machines and slings and providing best practice recommendations.
We provide obligation-free consultancy and gap review to ensure that you can minimise the risk and maximise your AN-ACC funding within the confines of legislation.
Our physiotherapists are trained to understand aged care culture and practices. We have a very comprehensive documentation package, which has been remarkably appreciated by many assessors at accreditation.
We must admit that we go out of our way to customise our service according to the facility’s and resident’s needs, as physiotherapy is all about individualised care.
