About Geriatric Physiotherapy

Getting older is often associated with balance and mobility problems that can increase the risk of falling in elders. Fear of falling is one of the most common reasons elders become inactive and as a result of that their strength and function may deteriorate. However, the third age can also be associated with other more complex health related problems that may affect the function and independence of the individual. This is exactly where geriatric physiotherapy can help. Our highly specialist team is incorporating the latest evidence from the literature in the field of geriatric physiotherapy. Every person is different therefore, we assess each patient carefully and discuss their individual needs and expectations so we can create a rehabilitation programme tailored for their needs.

Such programmes often involve balance training, gait re-education, prescription and supervision of evidence informed strengthening, stretching and functional exercise plans which are monitored and progressed accordingly. In cases where the patient is not independent, we offer relative/carer’s education for the appropriate use of mobility and rehabilitation equipment. Geriatric physiotherapy aims in the prevention of falls and promotes the independence and wellbeing of the elder individual by improving their function, mobility and strength.

Why Home Visits?

There is a wide range of benefits of being able to receive physiotherapy at home. Some patients may not be able to travel to the clinic for various reasons and having the option of receiving care at home means that we can cater to everyone. Whether you are struggling to find time to visit our clinic or you have difficulties travelling, you can book our home visit service and one of our expert physiotherapists will be able to visit you at your home.

The benefits of a home visit extend further than just the convenience. It’s also useful for our physiotherapists to understand how your home environment affects your rehabilitation and if there are any lifestyle factors that could be affecting your condition. We can then determine the best route of treatment and rehabilitation that will result in the best outcome for you. For patients that have recently undergone an operation and are recovering at home, a home visit may be an ideal solution for helping them recover quicker and giving the right advice to maintain their health.

What Can Be Expected?

After an appointment has been arranged, one of our expert physiotherapists will visit you at your home. We will bring the necessary equipment to conduct a session and the first session usually starts with a conversation to see what has been affecting you.

This enables our therapists to understand the problems that are causing discomfort or pain and this will help us to establish joint goals. The initial session is very important as it helps us to determine what you would like and how our experts can help assist you best.
