Domiciliary visits

Here at Ankerside Physiotherapy Clinics we provide Domiciliary care also known as home care. Domiciliary care is the delivery of a service in an individual’s own home, or a residential or nursing home.
Our aim is to enable a person and/or their carers to self manage their condition. This will usually involve an assessment and a course of treatment.

Our team provides:

  • Physiotherapy in the patients home or residential and nursing homes.
