Innovative & reflective approach to healthcare
Community Therapy is staffed by a professional team of Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapy.
Our Physiotherapy assessments are comprehensive and we test cognitive capacity, balance, strength, endurance, reactivity, multitasking ability and motor control.
Our assessments are evidence-based, meaning that they are based on research, and one example of a test we may perform to test a client’s balance is the Berg Balance Scale.
This test allows our Physiotherapist to test many components of the client’s balance to determine areas of balance that require improvement through training. This can be things like:
- The ability to balance with eyes closed
- The ability to balance on one leg
- The ability to reach and touch the floor in standing
The tests we perform in an initial assessment can determine the level of impairment in a client’s physical function and allows us to identify risks (i.e. risk of falling in narrow areas or in the night time) as well as develop a safe and repeatable treatment plan.
Our Occupational Therapists have worked in a wide variety of properties. We are capable of delivering simple, low-cost assistive equipment (i.e. walkers, commodes and wheelchairs) right through to high-cost or complex assistive equipment such as custom wheelchairs, cushions and stair climbers.
Our Occupational Therapists also assist with major and minor home modifications from rails and simple ramps through to large modifications like full bathroom redesigns.
We work closely with the coordinators and care staff from our partner organisations we to ensure any strategies and recommendations are put in place.
The staff of Community Therapy are constantly reflecting on our approach to clinical practice to ensure we remain current with modern evidence, innovative healthcare & maximising our quality of healthcare.
