I broke my ankle in Sept 2017 and found it very difficult to get back on my feet after the operation I had and many weeks of being immobile. I contacted London Home Physio through their website and found them extremely personable and accommodating. I received physio for a few months with a lovely therapist called Naomi. I felt that the service was professional but friendly and I felt really cared for. I’d highly recommend this practice and should I ever need physio in the future I wouldn’t hesitate to contact them again.

My sister had a severe stroke in November 2017 and is now in a care home. As she was not getting any physiotherapy in the care home, I was delighted to find London Home Physio. From my initial phone call, they have been so helpful and incredibly efficient. Anke has been working with my sister for the last 3 months. She is very professional and has a lovely, caring manner with her patients also with the carers and family around her. It is very clear that my sister has responded really well to the treatment she has received. Anke has been such a support in so many different areas. She has an ability to get my sister to go over and beyond what she would normally and she has given my sister her determination back and her confidence is finally growing. Anke is brilliant at giving me regular feedback particularly as I live away so I cannot visit my sister regularly. Anke has helped me find a brilliant OT and has also liased with the company we rent the wheel chair from. I can highly recommend Anke and I can honestly say I do not know what we would have done without LHP.
As soon as I realised I needed physio on my broken leg, I searched on google and London Home Physio was my preferred option and from the outset, they were outstanding. Simon was first class, and every time he came, he was thorough, but gentle at the same time. He was the perfect physio and if ever I need treatment again, London Home Physio will be getting a call. Thank you very much to all, Rhod
We cannot thank Hily enough for all the help she has provided for my mother. When my mother fell and broke her sacrum a few days after her 90th birthday, she was in severe pain, unable to walk and had lost all her confidence to be able to look after herself. My mother is fiercely independent but immediately felt at ease with Hily. After only one visit from her, my mother’s determination to recover was evident immediately. Hily has a delightful manner and is truly exceptional not only in the quality of service she provides, but also in the level of caring and sensitivity that she demonstrates during her sessions. I believe that my mother’s rapid recovery was only achieved because of Hily and feel very fortunate that we found her. We are so very grateful to her.
I recently had hip replacement surgery after a road accident, excellent hospital treatment, but not adequate Physio. For that, I was helped greatly by Danny from London Home Physio. I wish I had contacted home physio earlier, as my recovery was very much helped by his sensitive treatment.
I am not one to write reviews but I feel for all those families in a similar situation to ours, that this review will provide the confidence that London home physio are the right choice for your loved one.
My dad sadly suffered a stroke which has left his right side immobile, and the nhs physio wasn’t able to work with dad for a number of weeks. Therefore given time was a critical factor in dads recovery we decided as a family to pay for a private physio. Finding the right one was the key.
After many calls we decided on London Home physio.
We couldn’t be happier with our decision, Mobs who has worked with dad is not only a caring person , working and pushing dad given his vast experience working with stroke patients but my father has developed a trust with Mobs and thanks to both of their efforts my dad is on the road to recovery. I would whole heartedly recommend London home physio, for not only taking the time to understand both my dad and our needs but engendering a human touch in what is a distressful situation.
From my initial conversation with Hily who very much put both the family and patient at the heart of the treatment, we are happy to share our story if it helps other families know there are good people there to help .
My elderly mother has had two visits from Michael, the physio, who she has been really impressed with. She says he is extremely gentle and very knowledgeable. She was quite reluctant to have another physio after some previous experiences, and after having Michael says she finds it odd that others call themselves qualified when they have no where near the knowledge and understanding that he displays.
Luciana has given me physiotherapy for twelve sessions and has given several effective exercises to improve my walking, posture and confidence following a major operation. She has been professional in her approach but always encouraging, congratulating my achievements but also urging me to perform better. She has been a charming and great help to me in regaining my strength and confidence to walk again properly.
John & Josie, Upton Park
We are pleased to be able to give our feedback of the services provided by London Home Physio by way of Mobolaji Lewis (Mobs) -Josie’s physio for preparing her for and recovery from her total knee replacement surgery.
We have been very satisfied from day one with his professionalism, firmness, understanding, politeness, encouragement and knowledge that he has shown throughout Josie’s physio sessions and in telephone calls seeking reinsurance.
Firmness, in getting Josie motivated to do the exercises necessary, understanding when it was time to relax on some exercises due to pain, and his understanding with the problems that are associated with knee surgery recovery.
We do not hesitate in praising him for what he has been able to achieve with Josie’s recovery and have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone requiring a personal physio especially home visits.
We will automatically request his services if and when Josie requires knee replacement surgery on her other leg (or in any situation requiring a physio at home).
Thank you Mobs, for all the help, kindness and support you have given us though out Josie’s physio session.
Tribute to London Home Physio’s!
Our daughter was recently in hospital with very seriously fractured right foot, ankle and ribs and she has benefitted from twice a week visits from very experienced physiotherapists, which was arranged through London Home Physio.
The therapists were kind, reliable and there was very regular and good communication with the therapists aswell as with the office.
As a result our daughter’s injuries have healed well and since then she has regularly continued her training with the very practical exercises given to her by the physiotherapists.
We can fully recommend the service.
I found Mark Wilkinson totally excellent. He balances humour with seriousness, encouragement with challenge, sensitivity with toughness and never forgets what has happened in previous sessions. I have many times groaned and refused and whined and he has known just when to push and when to hold back.
It’s 5 weeks tomorrow since my double knee surgery and today I walked a good distance, admittedly rather slowly and carefully, without a crutch and I can see that soon I can banish the wretched thing permanently.
Luciana and Nathalie are superb physiotherapists. My elderly father had a terrible accident and was unable to move for 4 months during recovery so his muscles wasted away. We tried various physiotherapists and a specialist residential clinic when the time came for him to rebuild his muscles, but without much success. Then we found London Home Physio – Nathalie and Luciana are extremely knowledgeable and professional and have the personal skills to have transformed my father’s care: they are warm, caring and fun but hard as steel underneath, so they have succeeded in motivating a depressed, stubborn and damaged man to put his all into recovering – he looks forward to their visits, does his exercises, and he has now amazingly begun to walk again!
In early 2016 my mum suffered a stroke which resulted in the loss of movement on her left side. Mum got some initial rehab in hospital but unfortunately not much movement came back and we placed her in a lovely care home. My mum was always independent, strong and determined before her stroke and these qualities have stuck with her. It was because of her determination that I set out to look for physio that would share her enthusiasm and hard work and be able to see Mum in the care home. I went onto the official physio website and found London home physio.
Since around August 2016 Hily and (more recently) Luciana have been treating my mum. They are both extremely knowledgeable and professional but also very kind and engaging with my mum. Encouraging when she has the extra energy and motivating when she is a little low. They have improved her well-being by providing much needed exercise and stretching but by also providing mum with techniques whereby mum can feel less reliant upon others. They professionally guide mum through her progress and offer realistic goals, to ensure the small steps of improvement are able to be met. They vary exercises to keep mum interested. They interact very well between themselves and mum and I can see that they care and want to help to give mum a good result at the end of every session.
I recommend them highly, for their friendly and warm nature, their continued hard work and professionalism but most of all for their knowledge and experience. I struggled to find a physio that could help with a stroke/Neuro patient outside of hospital or a clinic. So finding Hily, Luciana and their team has been a godsend. Their understanding of mums condition and their continued work with mum is invaluable.
Without hesitation, we highly recommend London Home Physio. Their team is professional, caring, and flexible, which is hard to find. No matter what came up, they bent over backwards to accommodate our schedule. London Home Physio transformed a challenging situation into an experience that was pleasant and led to a smooth and effective recovery..
I contacted London physio after my knee replacement operation in November. I got an appointment right away and had a home visit from a lovely lady called Amy. She did a full assessment of my knee and we went though the exercises. I had 6 sessions in a total and six weeks after my op I was walking up and the stairs. I would recommend London Home Physio to anyone – a great service and well worth the money. I will be having my second knee replacement later this year and I will be using them again.
My experience with London Home Physio with Mrs Hily Perpinyal (physiotherapist) has been fantastic. I have had a surgical procedure on my knee, ACL and MCL reconstruction and I needed physio treatment, I was not able to drive or walk. Hily has been coming to my home providing everything I needed and done so on my times to adapt to my family life. Hily was so professional and every week I noticed improvements. I was very motivated and I was doing exercises myself but was making mistakes and Hily managed to get me doing them properly and cheering me up during the process because this stage of postoperative treatment is difficult . If you require physiotherapy I recommend London Home Physio services without a doubt.
In February, I shattered my lower left leg: technical term: Tibial Plateau Fracture Schatzker V1. I arrived home from ten days in hospital non-weight bearing and very worried about everything. Hana arrived and listened first, then calmly and professionally worked on a plan. I gained confidence because of the way she worked with my surgeon to enable my recovery. Even though months of recovery lay ahead in those early days, I could see that Hana, with her knowledge and kind patience, would work to ensure that I gained back my ability to walk and walk well. Every week she pushed me to the next stage until now I am walking only with a cane. She is now checking my gait so that, when I walk finally without the cane, I will walk properly. I cannot say how much Hana’s help has mattered to me.
My physio, Becky, is a ray of sunshine who gets me to move with warm nudging.
I am 87 years old and have normal pressure hydrocephalus. After several long spells in hospitals for various reasons, I can only walk short distances with a frame, and am mostly dependent on wheelchairs. I also suffer from various aches and pains in my knees and right hand.
Becky works with me to strengthen both my upper body and my legs. She adjusts to my condition of the day and has a wide range of exercises to deal with my issues. She is caring and knowledgeable but also a real morale booster. Even when I am tired and don’t really want to do any exercises, she somehow gets me to do more than I think I can.
My mother is very resistant to, and defensive about, any interventions, including physio, so I have been so relieved that she actually likes Naomi and has been happy to carry on physio with her.
That may not seem like much, but it’s actually praise indeed!
My physio Alex has always been punctual, she has a pleasant mannerism and is never rushed. I will always recommend her to any of my friends who require treatment.
I’ve had very good sessions with my physiotherapist, Geetha, and I would recommend London Home Physio to anyone needing help
The team at London Home Physio have been helping my brother, Keith, following his stroke. They have visited him at the nursing home regularly over the past year, and it is lovely to see the improvements in the range of movements he can make. Suggestions have also been made of other ways to improve Keith’s quality of life, and has been a great help in getting this equipment in place. This has benefited Keith tremendously. I can’t thank Hily and her team enough for all they have done, and I do not know what we would have done without them.
Jennifer, Maida Vale
I am so glad that I rang London Home Physio. I was in severe pain and I couldn’t walk. The help I received from start to finish was sympathetic and extremely professional. The visit by Sharon was a blessing. She arrived punctually and set about the assessment. She was very thorough in her examination and seemed also to tune in to my situation intuitively. She devoted herself to finding the source of my problem and having done so, offered treatment solutions. Sharon’s guidance, assistance and information exceeded my expectations and I felt immediately relieved.
Isabel, Golders Green
My 90-year-old mother has severe dementia and after an accident at her care home which resulted in a broken hip, Hily started working with my mother, visiting three times a week to try and restore mobility. Sadly this was not possible but Hily has proved to be an exceptional individual who has established a real rapport with my mother. Hily now visits twice a week, as much for her ability to interact with my mother as the stretching, massage and general physiotherapy. This has been a long term relationship, borne of Hily’s interpersonal skills and she has been an absolute blessing and a real support for me as well as my mother.
Extremely professional physio service providing expert support to patients and accurate feedback to clinicians.
Having seen rapid improvement in my wife’s ability to recover following a knee replacement operation and backed up by frequent positive feedback from many other patients who have benefited from the service I cannot recommend London Home Physio highly enough.
Hily has been working with my 91-year-old uncle since he reluctantly went into a nursing home. Their regular physio sessions have been a real lifeline in keeping him mobile, and providing vital encouragement and stimulation, since he lost most of his treasured independence suddenly due to poor health a year ago. Raymond really enjoys these sessions, both inside and outside in the garden, and we have all found Hily’s genuine care and concern for his overall well being very reassuring. We have been 100% happy with the high standard of service received from all Hily’s colleagues at London Home Physio who have worked with Ray. Their excellent communication, professionalism and willingness to be flexible to fit around the home’s routines and any changing needs has made a difficult situation feel a lot more positive for Ray and family.
Celia, East Finchley
Thank you so much for your invaluable help and kindness. In just over 2 months I am completely recovered, can now walk unaided, go out for lunch and am fitter than before. And I am almost 94! Many thanks in aiding a miraculous recovery.
First and foremost, on behalf of us all, particularly my mum and dad, a big thank you for looking after my mum.
It was so overwhelming watching mum walk… for me it was the first time I actually saw this.
Thanks to you, her confidence has grown, and it’s sealed her faith in that she can regain some mobility and independence.
T. Lewis, Potters Bar
My physiotherapist is very friendly, professional and always prompt.
My Exercises have enabled me to get out of bed and move more confidently – I therefore do not need a carer because I am more independent.
I always look forward to my physiotherapy treatments sessions.
Hily is an enabler.
My 95 year old mother Maggie had been hospitalised, bed bound and had not sat up for more than three months. During that time the specialists thought she was going to die but more recently it was clear that she was not ill any more but just could not move much. At that point Hily started working with her both mentally in terms of giving her good sound reasons to do the work and physically to get her up and moving.
I have been with them both in each session and it has been a delight to watch Hily help Maggie get through her feebleness and sense of helplessness to becoming strong minded and physically stronger again. There is a genuine sense of mutual collaboration between them both and Maggie has come to completely trust Hily in her judgement and become closely engaging with her in the rehabilitation process. As a relative I have felt included and part of that process as well.
I strongly recommend Hily
Anonymous, Bounds Green
Having met Aleksandra for the first time several weeks ago we knew we would get on well. She is totally committed and professional in her dealings with a patient, plus she has a delightful personality, at the same time displaying obvious strengths in her training and dedication to the person she is dealing with. She has helped my husband regain a lot of his mobility and also confidence in a very short time, and for this we are extremely grateful. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who needs help. Thank you Aleksandra
I am pleased to say how much better my back is since I first saw you 3 or 4 weeks ago.As you know I was in great pain with pulled muscles in my lower back & could hardly move!
I think I can safely say that I am better following your treatment & have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who wants to get better as soon as possible.
Mr Noel Floate, Radlett
Miss Hily, physiotherapist of London Home Physio visited me at home five times over a period of six weeks following my left knee replacement surgery. She was recommended by the physio looking after me at the London Wellington Hospital. She was excellent in meeting my needs and reassuring me in that difficult time. Her pleasant, inspiring, competent and encouraging service made such a real difference to my distinct steps of recovery. When her service ended, she also advised me so effectively regarding the planned treatment of massage for my swollen legs I subsequently needed.
Mrs Doreen Langston , Chingford
I had a hip replacement operation in October 2015. I was recommended by a friend, Hily from London Home Physio. It was very convenient Hily doing home visits and she soon had me back walking without any aid. Hily was very supportive and encouraged me to build up my confidence to push myself to walk normally. I have no hesitation in recommending her.
Chris Dawson , Chingford
I have Secondary Progressive MS and after a 2 month stay in hospital needed help to regain my strength and muscle tone.
I was very lucky to find Hily and have been seeing her for 7 months. I have made significant progress under her care and direction both during her visits and on my own. She is an inspirational physiotherapist and is the light at the end of the tunnel.
I look forward to continue working with Hily in the future.
Helen L, Golders Green
I am 95 and Hily has improved my movement so much with her exercises which I do every day. I really enjoy doing them as I can feel the strength coming back in my muscles and joints. She is a gentle persuasion and I look forward to her visits
Tim P.S , Hampstead
I came out of hospital with a bad rib injury and a collarbone with a long plate in the arm was in sling. I contacted London Home Physio on the day I came home – a Friday. Hily came on the following Tuesday. I liked her and engaged her straight away. The sessions have been quite tough and I did them on my own religiously but Hily always pushes you forward so you get a feeling not of repetition but of progress. In three weeks I was able to return to work, which was frankly miraculous, and I put it down almost entirely to Hily and the work we have done together. The fact that she came to the house for these sessions was the icing on the cake!
Amit and Poonam S, Hampstead
Hily started treating our father a few weeks after he arrived home from the hospital following a gruelling 5 months stay and a 10 hour emergency heart operation. The doctors were not too positive regarding his ability to walk again and we all prepared for the worst. Not many of the physiotherapists we interviewed were enthusiastic to treat our Dad, however from the first day Hily came on board she was a delight to work with. Her knowledge and expertise in treating recovering heart patients was astounding and her overall upbeat nature has been a real motivating force in our Dad’s recovery.
She approaches each physio session with total professionalism, fully prepared and punctual. We have nothing but the highest regard for her and will always be more than grateful for her hard work and dedication.
Our father is now walking around the house, in the garden and up and down the stairs and we are so pleased that his independence is being restored. This would not have been possible without Hily and for this we will always highly recommend her to everyone.
Emma and Jean T, North Finchley
Hily is a very professional and friendly person. She has been marvelous in assessing the needs of my mother (aged 94) and encouraging her to exercise to strengthen her muscles and regain confidence. My mother and I highly regard Hily and think she is a great Physio.
Hily has been fantastic in helping me regain strength and flexibility after my knee replacement. Warm, supportive, always smiling but no pushover, she’s a pleasure to work with. I have found her to be professional, knowledgeable and thoughtful, and have been very impressed by her holistic approach – she understands the importance of mental well-being to physical recovery. I always look forward to her visits!
Hily has been working with me to support my breathing and improve my mobility following a recent fall. I have found Hily to be extremely competent and professional in her approach, taking time to make a full assessment of my problems and capabilities before setting a progressive exercise programme for me. The exercises have increased my general strength so that i don’t feel so tired and I am steadily becoming able to do more for myself. Hily is very supportive and encouraging which has helped me to regain confidence in my own ability and to believe that I can become more independent again. I would wholeheartedly recommend her services.
Albert, Mill Hill East
Hily came, completely unknown to me, and was very satisfactory. I would use her services again if needed
