AGED CARE PHYSIOTHERAPY SERVICES

At Your Physio Advantage, we provide experienced aged care physiotherapy services to help older adults to remain active and independent. We assist in treating existing conditions while preventing further injury, disease or disabilities. Our goal is to identify issues that are impacting the lives of older people and provide treatment to help them to live a better quality of life with improved mental and physical wellbeing.

For older adults on home care packages, there are no "out of pocket" costs for physiotherapy. Subsidised physiotherapy is available under the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) and under the Medicare Enhanced Primary Care program (EPC).
