Home & Community Rehab

Our team is happy to bring rehabilitation services to you – whether you are looking for therapy in the home, workplace or community.

Making things easier.

At Home Therapy

Neurocore serves people with all levels of mobility and function. We understand the challenges and barriers there may be for certain clients to attend our clinic; whether it is the fear of falls, lack of access to transportation, or other physical and psychosocial reasons. Our therapists will travel to your home to provide the essential assessments and treatments for your rehabilitation.

Will I receive the same quality of care at my home and in the clinic?

Absolutely. Our therapists are able to bring any portable equipment or modalities to you as needed. We aim to maximise your home environment to design a treatment program that improves your function in daily activities. When possible, our therapists help you access the neighbourhood close to your home to allow you to re-integrate into your community.

What is the cost of At Home therapy?

  • Treatment sessions cost the same as that of the in-clinic sessions
  • An additional fee for travel time and mileage are applied

Adapting Your Home

We are actively involved in a multimodal approach to help improve our client’s home accessibility. We have assisted our clients from small renovations such as washroom accessibility, ramps and grab bar installation to fully remodeling an entire home. Our team of expert Physiotherapists, consultants and builders are able to assess, plan and provide you with accessible options to ensure your home is barrier free.

Home Assessments

Our Physiotherapists can conduct both home and workplace assessments to ensure:

  • Safety
  • Optimize comfort
  • Improve mobility
  • Remove barriers to function
  • Prevent falls
  • Reduce injuries
  • Improve productivity

We assess your environments and provide advice related to: 

  • Floor coverings
  • Furniture placement
  • Work station set ups (chair set up, height of desk, computer and keyboard position)

We can also recommend:

  • Assistive devices
  • Adaptive equipment
  • Protective equipment

We collaborate with your Occupational Therapists and Contractors to help with design and equipment layout.

Pool Therapy

Pool therapy is the use of exercise in the water as part of a treatment of numerous conditions. Our Physiotherapists can help you locate a pool of an ideal temperature near your home and offer in-pool therapy.

Exercising in water allows you to take advantage of the unique properties of water:

  • Buoyancy – helps to unload pressure from weight-bearing joints and assist you with increased ease of certain movements
  • Temperature – warm water allows for muscle relaxation and has a sedative effect on the nervous system which reduces pain and discomfort
  • Resistance – water can provide multidirectional resistance for a variety of therapeutic exercises

I have a neurological condition, am I a candidate for Hydrotherapy?

Absolutely! We have accompanied many of our clients with neurological conditions since the pool is often an ideal environment to facilitate movement, reduce tone and promote relaxation.

Who else do you treat in the pool?

  • Post total hip or knee replacements
  • Chronic low back pain
  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Amputations
  • Scoliosis
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • In need of conditioning

What is a Concussion?

 

A Concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury sustained due to one or a combination of several factors including but not limited to:

  • Falls
  • Motor vehicle collisions
  • Blow, or jolt to the head
  • Strike o the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth
  • Extreme sound/vibration/explosions
  • Sport-related injuries

Sudden movement may impact the brain and cause it to move within the skull, creating chemical changes in the brain stretching and damaging brain cells and in turn brain function.

What are the potential long-term implications of a concussion?

 

  • Post-traumatic headaches
  • Vertigo
  • Changes in vision and/or hearing
  • Impaired balance and walking
  • Fluctuations in mood, sleep and energy levels
  • Functional capacity change
  • Difficulty in returning to work, school, sports and family life

What are the signs/symptoms of a concussion?

 

  • Headaches or a feeling of pressure in the head
  • Temporary loss of consciousness
  • Confusion or feeling as if in a fog
  • Amnesia surrounding the traumatic event
  • Dizziness or “seeing stars”
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Slurred speech
  • Delayed response to questions
  • Appearing dazed
  • Fatigue
  • Increased mood fluctuations

Some concussion symptoms are experienced immediately while others have a delayed onset of few hours, or days after an injury such as:

 

  • Concentration and memory complaints
  • Irritability and other personality changes
  • Sensitivity to light and noise
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Psychological adjustment problems and depression
  • Disorders of taste and smell

 

What does an individualized Post-Concussion Management program consist of?

 

The Graded Redefined Assessment of Strength, Sensibility and Prehension (GRASSP) is an outcome measure for sensory and motor impairment of the upper limbs after tetraplegic spinal cord injury. It can be used to assess the extent of natural recovery, as well as the effectiveness of interventions.

Can children sustain concussions?

 

Absolutely. Children may experience concussions but symptoms may be difficult to recognize due to children’s difficulty in describing how they feel or may compensate well enough that the symptoms are less identifiable.

 

 

Concussion “clues” in children may include:

 

  • Appearing dazed
  • Listlessness and tiring easily
  • Irritability and crankiness
  • Loss of balance and unsteady walking
  • Crying excessively
  • Change in eating or sleeping patterns
  • Lack of interest in favorite toys
