Our purpose is to provide the highest quality of private home visit physiotherapy in the comfort of your own home, without a waiting list and at no extra charge for travel
AND to help Care Home Managers to up their game in terms of the quality of care they provide to be more effective, responsive and safe through business to business collaboration and a multidisciplinary approach to care planning.
Launched in Devon in August 2015, Zest Physiotherapy for Life was created following market research with care homes revealed the need for expert on-site physiotherapist services. Due to demand for this unique service our network of independent physiotherapists continues to grow.
At Zest Physiotherapy for Life we value timely physiotherapy intervention to prevent or postpone decline in function and independence. We believe that the benefits gained by physiotherapy should not stop when potential for improvement ends, and that the benefits of maintenance and prevention of decline should not be underestimated.
Our clients benefit from continuity of care and the development of positive working relationships between therapists and care home teams.
