Home Based Therapy

We can see you at home, in our clinics, or out in your local gym or park. Our team of multi-disciplinary clinicians are here to help you.

Locations

Our mobile service covers most of Metropolitan Sydney servicing private homes, nursing homes, residential villages and places of work and leisure. We can see you in the local pool, gym or park too!

Being seen in your own home makes therapy relevant and specific to your immediate environmental needs. Teaching you how to roll in bed, climb your stairs or shower safely are all best done in the same place and using the same equipment or furniture you use every day.

The additional benefits of being seen at home mean that we can train both you and your support worker or carer how to be safe and how to maximise your independence with effective set up and preparation.

As the preferred service provider to many organisations and hospital discharge planners, we cover all of Sydney offering specialised Physiotherapy, Exercise Physiology and Occupational Therapy services.

At Your Gym

Do you have a goal of joining your local gym or just engaging yourself in regular exercise?  

Do you need help from someone to get started and make this happen? 

Our team of Exercise Physiologists offer the At Your Gym program to enable you to develop effective, safe and healthy exercise routines at a location convenient to you. 

We can: 

  • Meet you to discuss your exercise goals and assess your baseline strength and fitness. 
  • Work with you to scope out local convenient options that would be suitable. 
  • Be there with you for your first session, to start to orientate you to the gym equipment. 

Over the following weeks we can: 

  • Come to some, or all of your sessions to conduct a safe and effective exercise program tailored to you. 
  • Help train any support workers or family members if you choose to exercise with them outside of sessions. 
  • Be there with you to help you progressmodify and introduce new exercises. 

Whether you are looking to get back to the gym or have never exercised before, it really doesn’t matter! Our Exercise Physiologists are friendly, supportive and knowledgeable and will love to help you achieve your goals! 

Beach days

Whether your goal is to participate in ocean pool hydrotherapy, broaden your horizons on what is possible when living with a disability or you would just like to access the ocean, beach and be outdoors, Jason’s Beach Access days might be for you!
The sessions take place at Collaroy beach and depending on your goals we will spend an individual 1 hour session either accessing the beach or the ocean pool (this includes assistance entering/exiting the beach or pool).
The session goals will be led by you. The focus can be to continue working on your exercise goals in an outdoor environment or we can simply support you to experience the psychological and social benefits of accessing the beach and ocean. We can also help to build you and your support teams confidence to continue these activities independently.
If you haven’t seen an ARC therapist before, we will need to meet you first. This is required to assess your goals, the level of support required and to determine if it will be safe for you to access the ocean pool. If you require more hands on support or hoist transfers you must bring a carer, support worker or family member that is willing to enter the pool to assist with the session.
The Northern Beaches council provides free to rent pool and beach access wheelchairs to allow people with a disability the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of getting back to the beach. Jason will organise all this for you!
It’s been a wet summer so far, but we will run the sessions weather permitting!
Please contact Jason King for more information: jason@archealth.com.au

Four years ago, Tho suffered a Hypoxic Brain Injury resulting in a loss of coordination of his trunk and limbs (ataxia) and is dependent on using a walker in order to mobilise safely.

Prior to his injury one of Tho’s favourite hobbies was snorkelling which is why he decided to give ARC’s beach access a try! Tho has now attended 2 sessions in the ocean pool at Collaroy and has thoroughly enjoyed getting back in the water. He has started working on coordination of swimming strokes with the use of floats and assistance from Jason, ARC’s Exercise Physiologist. Tho has also started attending his local pool with his carer in order to get more practice! His next ocean pool session will involve practicing snorkelling. With continued practice and support from ARC we hope to see Tho gain the skills and confidence to resume his favourite activity – snorkelling in open water!

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy can be an effective way to treat people with neurological conditions, often in combination with other rehabilitative techniques. Many people with neurological conditions are able to perform activities in the water that they are unable to perform as on dry land, which means they feel a greater freedom of movement when in the pool.

Hydrotherapy can increase strength, reduce muscle spasm and be a very enjoyable means of exercise for many people.

Your local pool

ARC’s team of neurological physiotherapists frequently conduct sessions with clients at their local swimming pools. We are able to scope access and facilities to ensure we are able to use the pool safely and effectively and meet the needs of our clients. INSERT IMAGES?

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Hydrotherapy Group

The MS group program is run both as a gym land based program as well as a hydrotherapy pool program at a site less than 1km away from the ARC clinic. Our small group is lead by an experienced neurological physiotherapist and each circuit based exercise is tailored to you. Enjoy the support and encouragement of others with MS in the group and receive education and tips of how to manage your condition. INSERT IMAGES

Equipment Prescription

From simple items through to complex customised products, our therapy staff work closely with both local and national equipment providers to ensure your needs are met with the best piece of equipment.

A thorough assessment including analysis of daily and recreation/work activities forms the basis of understanding a clients needs and goals. Goal setting is teamwork approach, and from here we can start to explore equipment solutions with our clients.

Equipment trials are often indicated so we can analyse, first-hand if it is the best piece of equipment for the client. There many different products which seemly offer the same thing. However, there usually are differences in operation, specifications and function meaning a choice needs to be carefully considered. Our therapist have strong relationships with equipment representatives meaning trials can be organized as smoothly as possible.

Equipment hire is some circumstances may be a possibility. Equipment needs may not be permanent or a trial over a longer period of time may be indicated to inform the correct choice.

Our therapists are competent and experienced in completing AT (Assistive Technology) forms for NDIS submission. Clear reasoning and justification is required to ensure funding. Proof of a thorough exploration of available equipment is often required.

Mobile Seating Clinic

ARC’s Seating Clinic runs twice a week at ARC but is also mobile, where our OT comes to you! If you have any questions about needing a new chair or customising your existing chair to function better, get in touch!

The correct wheelchair and seating system combination can significantly improve positioning, comfort, independence and an individual’s overall quality of life.

Jordana has been a long-term client at ARC and it was time for a new power wheelchair! Jordana had a thorough postural assessment completed by Seating Clinc OT, Julie McRann. She then trailed some suitable wheelchairs and made a final decision on the Magic Mobility 360 which was scripted by an OT Specialist Equipment Representative at GTK. Jordana’s new wheelchair was delivered and set-up at her home during which she familiarised herself with use of her new wheelchair. Seat elevation is a new power feature for Jordana which enables her to access the kitchen worktop bench and other areas in her home that were previously inaccessible e.g. the freezer, cupboards, microwave and the light switches. Wheelchair practice also included trialling the new coffee cup holder out at a local cafe! 😊
