Aging is a predominant factor in the development of chronic pain. As such, many residents living in residential aged care live with chronic and often, debilitating pain. Our role as physiotherapists is to improve pain management and a resident’s functional mobility to improve their quality of life.
Through ACFI funding, chronic pain management is funded through the 4A – once a week treatment, or 4B – four times a week treatment. Our allied health team are able to assess for pain and then create, develop and provide appropriate treatment directives for each individual resident. Each pain management session involves a minimum of 20 minutes individual hand-on therapy.
Our physiotherapy treatment sessions ensure ethical treatment for the individual resident whilst meeting ACFI validation requirements.
The treatment is funded through ACFI government funding. If you seek more physiotherapy input or would like your loved one to participate in more rehab based treatment (eg. after injury, stroke, etc) we also provide private treatments.
