enhance your quality of life at home with home rehabilitation
Therapies on Thames is one of the few companies in Berkshire where Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists from the same team provide combined home rehabilitation.
We help anyone who is struggling with ill health or with managing daily tasks like washing and dressing and maintaining their quality of life. It could be you, a family member, someone you’re caring for as a care agency, a private hospital patient or in care homes.
Our clients are all different. You could be an older person who has had a fall at home or someone in their 50s who’s had a stroke. Perhaps you’re a 30-year-old with a long-term condition like Motor Neurone Disease or multiple sclerosis. Whatever your situation, you’ll receive better care with combined rehabilitation services.

benefits of a holistic approach
Here’s how we work together:
Our Physiotherapist and Occupational Therapist created a personalised rehabilitation programme for one of our clients, Mrs Clark, who was anxious and afraid of falling.
Mrs Jones had been admitted to hospital for eight weeks suffering from jaundice and had several falls at home. She was unable to return home and needed to stay in a care home. The care home manager contacted Therapies on Thames to assess her. She was using a hoist to get out of bed into a chair and was unable to stand or walk. She needed assistance with all her personal care. Mrs Jones wished to return to her house as she had lived in her house since her birth. Our therapists set rehabilitation goals involving Mrs Jones, her family and the care home staff.
Our Physiotherapist worked on her physical rehabilitation and gradually got her walking again with a frame. The Occupational Therapist practised everyday tasks such as washing and dressing. Mrs Jones made such good progress that we could plan to get her back to her home again. Our Occupational Therapist visited her home and arranged the appropriate equipment needed, so Mrs Jones could manage more independently. We then arranged a care package for a carer to come in to help her three times a day, support her with the house work and assist with washing and dressing, toileting and meal preparation. We sent our therapists to her house to encourage her and the carer to manage on their own.
Patients who benefit from our home-based rehabilitation service include:
THOSE WITH DIFFICULT SOCIAL SITUATIONS
We can help adapt their home for independent living or visit them in respite care homes giving them the rehabilitation needed for them to return home.
THOSE WHO FIND IT HARD TO TRAVEL
We come to you, taking out the inconvenience and stress of being not being able to travel to outpatient clinics due to pain or immobility.
THOSE RECOVERING FROM SURGERY
We provide greater support requirements at your own home for those following complex surgeries with protracted recovery times.
THOSE AT HIGH RISK OF INJURY
Patients suffering multiple comorbidities or those who are frail who are at higher risk of falling and getting readmitted to hospital.
THOSE STRUGGLING TO PROGRESS
Anxious patients or those failing to progress as expected. We can give them the encouragment and confidence needed in a place they feel comfortable.

On behalf of my father, we’d like to say a huge thank you for the expert advice and care you offered while he was in the hospital. We had almost given up that dad could remain at home due to the difficulties he was experiencing with Parkinson’s but you have given us confidence and advice we didn’t have before.
After your Physio treatment I felt so much better, not only with less pain but also feeling much more optimistic with the outcome with my ankle
Absolutely amazing help at a very stressful time, can’t thank you enough for all your help, guidance, recommendations and support to me, my brother and mum. Couldn’t have got through all these arrangements on our own. Truly exceptional company and values.
Friendly, professional and great results – i was recommended by a colleague to contact them following a sports injury. Very pleased with my recovery and back on track with my running – a big thank you. I would recommend to others
Friendly and reliable with great communication and results
