We provide individual assessments and physiotherapy treatment for the elderly. We will work with you, alongside your family and, where appropriate, your carers, to enable you to reach your maximum potential for independent living.
We regularly help people with problems including muscle weakness, reduced mobility and stiffness, poor balance and decreased confidence and independence.
We will work with you to set goals that are personal to you. This ensures that you improve in the things that are important to you in your function, and will motivate you further to practise the exercises we prescribe. Your goals can be anything at all, for example getting in and out of bed independently, or doing up your buttons yourself. Whilst these could seem like small goals to someone else, we understand that they will make a huge difference to your life.
Sessions will be mixed and varied so that you enjoy each appointment. Your exercises will strengthen muscles and reduce your risk of falling, and will include gentle stretching to improve your range of movement and balance.
We can work with you in the clinic environment or if you prefer we can visit your home to advise on activities, exercises and relevant home equipment aids. The aim is to increase your independence and give you the opportunity to practice functional tasks in a safe and supportive environment, to help you succeed. Please phone us if you want to discuss this further and we will be happy to help.
