About this Service

Telephone number: 024 7623 7023
Referral Criteria:  Coventry GP. Patient must be housebound or where support will help in their own environment
 

Our philosophy is to help you promote change and improvements to your life through achieving a specific goal. We know that being active and engaging in exercise helps people to remain independent for longer. We will support you to become more independent, offering advice on lifestyle changes and can provide rehabilitation and long-term self-management advice.

 

Examples of how we can help:

Mr Jones is struggling to turn over and get out of bed in the mornings. He has Parkinson’s disease.  The physiotherapy team taught Mr Jones a better way to roll in bed and provided a piece of equipment to enable him to get out of bed independently and with less effort. They also gave him some advice strategies to cope with his Parkinson’s symptoms of Freezing and an exercise programme to improve his flexibility.  The team telephoned his Parkinson’s nurse to review his medication to support his physiotherapy goal.

Mrs Kaur has pain and reduced movement in both of her knees.  Her mobility and balance have declined due to this.  Mrs Kaur wanted to be able to walk to her local community centre independently.  The physiotherapy team provided education and advice on staying active.  Mrs Kaur started a prescribed exercise programme with the support of a therapy assistant and was provided with a walking stick.  She was referred to a community exercise class and now attends regularly. Mrs Kaur still has days where she has pain but she is now more mobile and has achieved her goal. 

 

Your First Appointment

Your first appointment will be in your own home to identify your goals.  The length of this initial appointment will depend on the type of appointment you require, but can take up to 1 hour for a full assessment. 

At the initial appointment you will be asked a detailed history of your current symptoms, your past medical history, the medications you take and what you hope to achieve with physiotherapy.

Following your assessment, we will discuss how we can support you in achieving your goals.

We will advise and refer you on to other appropriate services to support your needs.
