Home Therapy Services For Senior Care

Home-based therapy for elderly care includes rehabilitation therapy services provided in a home environment for patients recovering their functional abilities.

Introduction to Home Therapy Services

If it is not convenient for your elderly loved one to travel to receive therapy services, you can consider home-based therapy services — where a therapist comes to your home.

Home Therapy and Rehabilitation Therapy Services include:

  • Assessing and treating people who need to learn, recover or maintain daily living and work skills.
  • Assessing and treating problems with movement because of disability, trauma or illness, such as learning how to walk again after a stroke.
  • Assessing and treating those with problems swallowing and speaking or who have language or communication problems.

In order to tap on home-based therapy services, get a referral from the hospital, polyclinic or general practitioner that the elderly visits. The cost of this service starts from $100 per visit (before means-testing subsidy).

If you have difficulty paying for the service, please speak to your service provider or the medical social worker in the hospital or polyclinic.

Home therapy services provided include:

  • Occupational therapy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Speech therapy
