We are now at COVID 19 alert level 2

What does this mean for Active + Milford Physiotherapy?

We are pleased to be able to announce that we have now begun to see clients in the clinic and in the community, with some provisions to keep us all safe and to continue to reduce the risk of spread of COVID-19. We've outlined these provisions below.

Free Resources

This week’s free resources cover a range of health and wellbeing topics particularly relevant to Covid-19 including building a strong immune system, staying healthy, and practical strategies for coping at home. We've also included some more exercise leaflets.

There is a lot of content here so feel free to grab what is useful and leave what is not. Download them all here bit.ly...

If you know anyone else who could benefit from these resources, then please feel free to forward this email or the PDFs to them.

Safety Provisions

What we're doing to keep you safe during Level 2
All clients will be pre-screened for COVID-19 symptoms prior to any in-person appointment occurring
Hand sanitisation will be mandatory before entering the clinic and all surfaces will be sanitised regularly and after client contact.
Physical distancing measures will be put in place where appropriate
Infection prevention control measures including PPE will be used where required, however we do not anticipate that this will be required since our screening will rule out any at-risk clients.

Hey neighbours, how do you feel about this divisive household dilemma?

Is taking your shoes off in someone's home the right and hygienic thing to do, or do you see being asked to remove your shoes as a total imposition?

Hey neighbours, how do you feel about this divisive household dilemma?

Is taking your shoes off in someone's home the right and hygienic thing to do, or do you see being asked to remove your shoes as a total imposition?

It's one of many home dilemmas we come across on Homed, along with toilet paper over or under? cutlery up or down in the dishwasher? top sheet or no top sheet?, to name a few. Read more about the arguments for each and see how many people agree with you, here.

Forrest Hill Community Garden, Coming soon

Dave Atkinson from Forrest Hill Community Garden

We are a couple of garden enthusiasts and hopeless romantics. We can’t bear the idea of a bunch of great people in Forrest Hill staying behind their fences and not knowing each other.

We are a couple of garden enthusiasts and hopeless romantics. We can’t bear the idea of a bunch of great people in Forrest Hill staying behind their fences and not knowing each other.

Our dream is to create a garden in Seine Road reserve which will be a place to learn to grow organic food, and a place to get to know our neighbours. It will be a beautiful space, a learning space, a place to get stuck in, and a place to experience what community can really be.

As with many things in life, good things take time. We have been working with the council since 2018, and we were granted permission late 2019. There are a few more steps in the process but we are hoping to break ground at Seine Reserve, Forrest Hill, in spring or early summer.

There are plenty of ways you can participate in this project. You might be an avid gardener, just interested in learning more or you love getting stuck into a project. If that is you, we would love to have you involved. And if you know a local business who is keen to get behind us, please let them know to reach out.

You can find us on social media or visit our website to find out more. You might also want to sign up to our mailing list to get regular updates.
