At Mount Isa Physio, we understand the vital importance for people to remain mobile and safe, no matter their age. This is why our physiotherapists are able to provide their services for the elderly either:
• In clinic –
Equipped with both modern and traditional treatment methods, we can provide treatment for a wide range of ailments and conditions
• In home –
We can visit and provide treatment to those who need it in the comfort of their own home. We believe all people should have access to a high standard of treatment as and when they please.
• In Aged-care facilities –
Employing one of our physios at your aged care facility means more people will have access to our services when they need it.
What we can offer
We are dedicated to providing relief from pain in a timely and accessible manner. Chronic pain is a big part of life as we get older, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Regular treatment from a physiotherapist can help reduce muscle stiffness, improve mobility and strength and increase balance and stability.
Recommendations for equipment and aids
Our physiotherapists can help provide recommendations and advice for mobility equipment to keep you or a loved one moving freely.
Pre and Post surgery care
Whether you or a loved one needs help preparing for an upcoming surgery, or needs help managing pain and recovery afterwards, one of our physio’s is ready to help.
Reducing the risk of falls
By helping people stay mobile and improve their strength, our physios are able to reduce the risk of falls and injury
We can provide group exercise classes that are fun and inclusive. There is endless amounts of research that shows the benefits of exercise for improving rehabilitation outcomes, mental health, balance and strength in people.
The need for surgery is common, however adequate recovery is usually neglected with patients being discharged far too early. Intervention after surgery from a physiotherapist will mean the correct rehabilitation exercises are administered to help ease pain and speed up the recovery process.
We are able to visit your aged care facility and provide manual handling training to staff to ensure the safety of residents and staff alike. We can provide recommendations for the safe handling of equipment and aids, and the correct techniques to be used when handling residents.
We can provide our services under the following funding streams
• Home Care Packages (HCP) Level 1-4
• Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP)
• Short Term Restorative Care (STRC) Program
• Transition Care Services (TCP)
• NDIS Funding
• Department of Veterans Affairs
