Why is Physiotherapy at care homes important?

With aging population, there had been an ever-increasing number of people residing in care homes or staying in nursing homes. The rehabilitation needs become more complex with age due to additional health or mobility needs that must be considered alongside physiotherapy treatment. Our team of dedicated clinicians will take this into consideration and develop a holistic treatment plan to achieve positive outcome. Most of the care homes offer various activities during the daytime to engage the residents. This can become daunting if an individual is deconditioned following hospital discharge or progressively declining in mobility and functional capabilities. Our team of skilled clinicians can work on improving the muscle strength, mobility, flexibility, balance, and confidence to engage with the staff and other residents.
