About our Group
Complete Rehab Care (CRC) is the combination of two trusted, respected and successful allied health businesses: OTcare and Geelong Home Physiotherapy. Under Tina’s leadership, OTcare earned a reputation over the past 12 years of being able to deliver excellence and consistency in Occupational Therapy services. After fortifying strong relationships in the Geelong region, the business expanded but the realisation of introducing other services to fill a service gap became evident. A new relationship with Todd Purser, director of Geelong Home Physiotherapy, was then formed. Geelong Home Physiotherapy has been providing a niche ‘home-based’ physiotherapy service to the Geelong and surrounding regions. For people in the community that find it more suitable to receive their therapy within their home setting, Geelong Home Physiotherapy has proudly assisted many local residents achieve their therapy goals.
