Physio Home Visits
Greater Melbourne, Geelong, Sydney and Adelaide.
Mobile physio services for seniors tailored to your needs
The Physio Co (TPC) is a mobile physiotherapy company dedicated to caring for seniors. We come to you wherever you call home—a private home, a retirement village unit or an aged care facility.
Our caring, qualified physios help by treating injuries, aches and pains or getting elderly individuals mobile after hospital stays or operations. We service most of Melbourne, Sydney, Geelong and Adelaide.
We also create treatment and exercise plans. These involve regular visits to help seniors achieve their health, fitness and independence goals.
Because at TPC, we believe physical therapy is about doing more and getting more out of life—not just muscles and joints. It’s about gaining the physical strength to improve your emotional well-being—through improved happiness, confidence, independence—and vital social and family connections.
“It’s not just about joints and muscles; it’s about a better quality of life.”
How in-home physio works
You call us on 1300 797 793. We’ll explain how we work together and book your first appointment
A physiotherapist will visit you at a convenient time at home for your first appointment.
During your appointment, your physio will listen closely to your needs and concerns, learning more about any pain, health concerns, and goals.
Your physiotherapist will complete an assessment based on the above. Then, they’ll create a one-page plan to achieve your health goals.
Once you’ve agreed to the plan, your physio will start physio sessions in the most convenient location—your home.
TPCer Kathy explains what to expect during your initial appointment with a TPC physio.

Physio home visits: all your questions, answered
Our team are specialists in helping older people be as mobile, safe and happy as possible.
We’re excited about helping you!
Our caring and experienced physiotherapists will come to your home, complete a physio assessment, create a plan to achieve your health goals and conduct physiotherapy treatment in the most convenient and comfortable location possible: right at home.
Mobile or home visit physiotherapy improves walking & moving; relieves pain and makes life much easier.
Our physiotherapists are experts in helping clients to be as mobile, safe and happy as possible by relieving pain, improving strength and maximising quality of life.
Our physiotherapists are compassionate, caring people and very dedicated – they are also cheerful because they love what they are doing… A large (and unofficial) part of our treatment is lifting your spirits and ensuring that you look forward to your physiotherapy home service and are motivated to work hard on exercises designed to help you. The friendly nature and happy outlook of our physiotherapists has proven to help many older Australians along their treatment journey.
As we get older we generally get less active, more prone to accidents and illness and less mobile and independent than we once were.
This is where physiotherapy treatment at home can help. First you don’t have to go anywhere, you will be more relaxed at your own home, and we have a dedicated team of exceptional physiotherapists who have the knowledge, training and experience to help you.
For those who have recently had an accident or an operation, physio home visits are a blessing. Not being mobile or having limited mobility no longer prevents you from obtaining the help that you need.
Each member of our physio team uses their physiotherapy skill and experience to help elderly people at home. Health problems we help improve, include:
- Difficulty getting around
- Pain relief
- Parkinson’s disease
- Foot and leg problems
- Preparing for surgery
- Rehabilitation after surgery or hospital
- See more below
Physiotherapists use research and experience-based techniques including stretches, targeted exercises and massage to help the body improve its ability to move and function and to reduce pain. Even as we age, our body tissue continues to regenerate and physiotherapy uses this natural regeneration to help build muscles and increase movement, flexibility and independence.
In the comfort of your own home our physiotherapists will help you go through a series of exercises and your physio session may include massage as well. Where in your home you obtain treatment is up to you and your physio, it is usually a combination of in a chair, on a bed and a carpeted area free of obstacles – anywhere that is private and you feel comfortable.
Dress down for your physio appointment! You need to be in comfortable clothing that allows free movement. The type of clothing you should wear does depend upon where your pain or injury is. However, you can’t go wrong if you wear a loose t-shirt, singlet or short sleeved blouse and shorts or soft wide pants that can be pushed up above the knee. Sneakers or runners are ideal as they provide support.
You don’t need to have any equipment for our physio at home service to be a success. Our physios will work with you to determine the best place for treatment, and if there is any particular equipment we need, we will bring it to you at your home (or find things to use nearby!).
If you live in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide or Geelong we likely have a physiotherapist that can come to you within the next 3-5 days.
If you don’t live within these areas, please do give us a call (1300 797 793) to check if we can help.
