All assessments are conducted by an occupational therapist.
At Wellington Terrace, the Physiotherapy Team plays an integral role in helping our residents attain their highest possible level of well-being. Two physiotherapists and two physiotherapy assistants ensure responds to the mobility needs of our residents.
Our team has extensive knowledge and experience in orthopedics, neurology, rheumatology, geriatrics, and pain management.
A physiotherapy assessment is conducted on all new residents upon admission. A resident specific treatment plan is determined and could involve increasing independence and mobility, decreasing pain, and minimizing complications from existing conditions. Treatments are part of a interdisciplinary careplan.
As part of the interdisciplinary health care team the physiotherapy team is in constant contact with other departments such as nursing, recreation, and restorative care. This communication allows us to integrate each resident's treatment programme across departments and ensures continuity when their physiotherapy is complete.
In addition to one-on-one treatment, the physiotherapy department also offers group exercise classes for improving balance and strength.
Each member of the physiotherapy staff takes great pride in striving to maintain the highest standard of patient care and following best practice principles. In addition, they participate on all relevant committees as part of the WT team.
