Over 75% of people requiring home care are seniors who require assistance in managing physical and cognitive limitations.1 Physiotherapy provided in the home lowers mortality rates related to falls and the risk and rate of falls in older adults, reduces the number of nursing home admissions and hospitalizations, and decreases hospital length of stay (LOS).
ROLE OF PHYSIOTHERAPY IN HOME BASED SERVICES
Home-based physiotherapy services provide assessment and treatments to Canadians in their homes and communities for many conditions, including, stroke, heart failure, Parkinson’s disease, and recovery from hip-replacement surgery.Home-based physiotherapy improves overall physical wellbeing, enhances social functioning, ensures routine monitoring of isolated clients, and reduces the rate of re-hospitalization and future health care service utilization. Tele rehabilitation programs, as an accessible alternative to home-based physiotherapy services in rural and remote communities, also produce positive health outcomes. Tele rehabilitation is “the provision of rehabilitation intervention, education, training and support using technology across distances”.Home-based physiotherapy programs help ensure continuity of care and facilitate the transition from hospital to home.
