HOME BASED KINESIOLOGY SERVICES
ACTIVE REHABILITATION SERVICES IN THE HOME
Anna-Marie will travel to clients to assess physical function and to create, teach, supervise and progress an individualized exercise program. A unique program will be designed with the client’s specific goals and needs in mind. Regular reassessments will be scheduled to ensure progress is being made and recorded. Communication with family members, the client’s primary health care provider and/or health care team is included in these services as needed.
Catchment area is Victoria south of Hillside Avenue (James Bay, Downtown, Fairfield, Fernwood, Oaklands, Oak Bay). Travel fees of $10-60 per visit may apply for services beyond these boundaries. Please contact Anna-Marie for more information.
(60-75 MINUTES + PROGRAM DESIGN)
The initial assessment includes a full medical history interview and physical assessment. The assessment will vary based on the client’s current activity level and abilities and may include range of motion and strength measurements, balance testing or functional activity challenges to provide a baseline of physical function.
A personalized exercise program will be created to target areas of weakness and help to improve independence, function and overall physical health at home. The full program will be introduced at the first full (or short) session.
Regular sessions may be booked to help with consistent implementation of the program or follow up sessions to ensure proper technique and progressions may be preferred. Full or Short Kinesiology sessions will be recommended following the initial assessment and depending on your needs.
Reassessments are recommended every 4-12 weeks, depending on your needs and level of function.
Initial Assessment Fee: $140 + GST = $147.00
Note: If the initial assessment in is 45 minutes or less, due to the client’s reduced exercise tolerance, this fee may reduced to a Full Session Fee. For individuals who have memory or speech limitations, dementia or who are for any reason unable to answer the medical history interview questions it is asked that a family member be present or have filled in the form prior to the appointment. Usually these situations will be for clients unable to tolerate more than 30 minutes of physical activity for the assessment.
FULL KINESIOLOGY SESSION
A full home-based active rehabilitation session can be booked on a regular on-going basis, 1-5 times per week, or may be booked in advance every 2-8 weeks, as needed, in order to ensure that the current program is being completed & progressed appropriately.
These sessions will include a gentle warm up, strength, balance and functional activities that are specific to the client’s needs as well as a cool down or progressive slowing of activity to return to a resting state.
For regular bookings, reassessments and new program development will be included in the Full Session fee.
For advance bookings, additional reassessment and program design fees will apply. Programs may be progressed on site and any changes sent to you via email, as applicable.

SHORT KINESIOLOGY SESSION
(UP TO 30 MINUTES)
Short Kinesiology sessions are ideal for individuals with very low level physical fitness. These individuals may be looking to increase fitness and function slowly due to advanced (but stable) medical conditions, advanced age or limited physical or cognitive function.
Exercise programs will focus on functional activities to improve the overall health of the client. While the focus of these programs will continue to be on improving physical function, strength, balance and core stability, the regular social interactions are often noted to be one of the other benefits of these sessions.
Short Session Fee: $65 + GST = $68.25
Note: In situations like these, the initial assessment will generally be shorter based on the client’s tolerance. Please see the note in italics under the Initial Assessment column.
Travel Fee: $15-20 + GST depending on location. Please contact Anna-Marie for more information & to discuss individual cases.
