Community Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy

*Access to Continuing Care community rehabilitation services are only offered in central zone (HRM).

Community Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy involves the assessment of people in their home environments. Clients are seen at home either because they are physically unable to attend out-patient appointments or it is determined that the home environment needs to be included in the assessment. Using a consultative approach, occupational and physical therapists focus on promoting a person’s independence and safety in daily activities.  Interventions provided could include: equipment recommendations to improve movement and safety, falls prevention and education, exercise prescription, and/or caregiver education and training.

How do I access the program?

Access to Continuing Care community rehabilitation services are only offered in central zone (HRM).

Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists are primary care professionals (just like doctors and dentists) which means you can complete a self-referral to go to an occupational therapist or physiotherapist directly. In some circumstances a health care professional may be required to complete a referral on your behalf.

A referral is required. Please fax referrals to 902-454-1477.
