I am an exercise physiologist specialising in exercise prescription for chronic disease management. I currently run group exercise classes for people living with heart and lung conditions, as well as those with Diabetes. Clients are also welcome to see me on a one to one basis for a more personalised program.
I believe it is important to work toward my clients goals, not my own. I use goal setting & motivational techniques in my practice to help improve adherence to exercise and overall benefits for my clients. I realise that health problems require a multi-disciplinary approach and am happy to work with other health professionals to maximise the benefits to the client.
I am located in the Anglican Retirement Villages Therapy Centre in Castle Hill. We have a small but well equiped gymnasium, a physiotherapy department, and a hydrotherapy pool. The Therapy Centre is not just for the residents of ARV, it is open to all members of the community. Being in the setting that it is, the age of my clients is usually over 50yrs, and can be up to the 90's! However my services are available to people of all ages.
Government subsidies are available for eligible clients using Medicare or DVA referrals. Private Health rebates depend on your fund and level of cover.
Part of my role at ARV is to work with our residents living in the Residential Aged Care Facilities. Here I work with the elderly focusing on falls prevention and maintaining independence in both mainstream living and dementia care.
