Private consultations allow residents to discuss specific pain, physical limitations and other discomforts. Our physios are trained to identify underlying issues, like chronic pain, which is a very common but sometimes difficult to diagnose condition.
Individual care plans are then developed which may include:
- Exercise plan including group exercises
- Pain management wellness program
- A series of follow-up consultations with the physio
- Allied health plans such as occupational therapy, podiatry or dietetics
HCA Allied Health offers a Free Initial Assessment for all resident. Subsequent consultations may be eligible for Medicare or Department of Veteran’s Affairs (DVA) funding with a referral from a treating GP or medical specialist.
We also provide privately funded sessions to aged care residents on request. Consultations may be claimed through private health insurance if residents have suitable cover.
