Lookout Ridge Retirement Home has worked hard to become one of the few retirement homes in Ontario with a fully functioning in-house physiotherapy program, available Monday-Friday on a schedule set to your needs. Available for respite stays and long term stays alike, this service can be provided either in-room or in our exercise centre located on the bottom floor of the retirement facility. The physiotherapy service is multi-faceted and can be used for a range of needs from intensive rehabilitation to improvements in balance and gait. Nearly all of us could benefit from some form of exercise. Let us help you keep healthy, active, and independent.

Examples of what we can offer:

  1. Comprehensive initial and quarterly physiotherapy assessments with treatment plans carried out by Registered and well qualified Kinesiologists
  2. Rehabilitation for pre- and post- operative hip and knee replacements
  3. Stroke rehabilitation from hand therapy to prevention of contractures

  5. Balance assessments and training for falls prevention
  6. Specialized training for person’s effected by Parkinson’s Disease and other degenerative disorders affecting activities of daily living
  7. Transfer training for effective, safe transfers in/out of bed, chairs, walkers, etc.
  8. Strength training for specific muscle groups or general strengthening

** The list is limitless. Each person has an individual treatment plan designed by combining their own personal goals with the treatment suggestions of our physiotherapist. When putting these together, the results of our physiotherapy services can help you become a stronger, healthier, and happier person **

Our Philosophy:

Every resident at Lookout Ridge Retirement Home deserves to have access to affordable, quality physiotherapy services without having to worry about transportation to an off-site location to have this provided. Whether the issue is a sore back, balance deficits, troubles with walking, or even an old injury that has slowly become a bigger issue, we all deserve the right to accessible care. Combining the knowledge of a private clinic in St. Catharines, NHRC (Niagara Health and Rehab Centre), the staff of Lookout Ridge Retirement Home, and members of our former physiotherapy provider, today’s current program is up and running with great success. We are here to help you in any way we can.
