Physiotherapy Services

Area residents recovering from injuries and those who want to maintain their mobility have access to a complete range of physiotherapy services at the Almonte General Hospital- Fairview Manor (AGH-FVM). Our physiotherapists provide preventative and therapeutic services aimed at restoring function and preventing disability arising from disease, trauma and injury. Our volunteers play an integral role in supporting department function.

The AGH-FVM physiotherapy department provides services to outpatients, inpatients on the Medical Surgical Unit, and clients in the AGH Day Hospital program and Rosamond complex continuing care unit continuing care unit and Fairview Manor Nursing Home. The physiotherapy department also contracts services to the Ottawa Valley Family Health Team Tele Health Cardiac Rehabilitation Program and to Orchard View Retirement Home.

Physiotherapy service within the AGH Day Hospital Program focuses on multisystem pathology that crosses musculoskeletal, neurological and cardiorespiratory domains within our frail elderly population, and neurological conditions such as Parkinsons, stroke and head injury, and complex needs following hospitalization, within the general rehabilitation population. Falls prevention is a major focus of Day Hospital.
