Our mission is to IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR BOTH PARENTS AND THEIR CHILD.
HOW DO WE ASSESS THE CHILD?
- An evaluation is performed by a licensed physical therapist and an individualized treatment plan of care is developed. In addition to addressing a child's physical wellbeing, therapists take into consideration the psychological, social and environmental factors that affect them. Parental involvement in the physical therapy process is highly encouraged and recommended. The therapists consult with parents on an ongoing basis in regards to their child’s progress. Parental training in the techniques used in therapy can improve a child’s overall success and allow the child to practice skills learned in therapy outside the treatment sessions.
- Every child is seen in a relaxed environment where parents are actively encouraged to be involved with the therapy process.
- Assessments and treatments are carried out on a one-to-one basis.
- We endeavour to provide prompt appointments with minimal waiting times.
- Our physiotherapists are experienced in working with international patients and in facilitating their return to home countries with ongoing physiotherapy programmes.
- We regularly assess each child's equipment needs and provide appropriate recommendations to enhance the child's functional abilities. We have access to and good relations with a wide variety of equipment suppliers.
- Initial contact includes a detailed assessment/treatment session during which the therapist, child, family and relevant carers are able to establish mutual and achievable goals of treatment. We also use this time to agree upon a suitable physiotherapy regime, setting up subsequent physiotherapy sessions and providing ongoing advice.
- We liaise closely with the multidisciplinary team of health professionals to implement and integrate the child’s therapy into their daily routine.
- On discharge from our therapy service, each child is provided with a tailor made treatment package, so that they may continue their therapy progress
- When children require specialized equipment for use at home, such as wheelchairs, splints, walking devices, bathing equipment, dressing devices or communication aids, therapists can assess their individual needs and order what is appropriate.
- Contact with any questions or if you are interested in scheduling an appointment for pediatric therapy rehabilitation services.
- Appointments are available Monday through Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m
