Looking for an elder care therapist?

Physiotherapists play a vital role in the care of the elderly, offering specialised services to enhance their overall health and well-being. With a focus on mobility, strength, and balance, physiotherapists create personalised exercise programs to improve independence, prevent falls, and manage chronic conditions.

We understand that going to a clinic might not always be convenient, especially for seniors. To ensure the utmost comfort and ease, we provide a mobile service where our expert physiotherapists come to you. Whether it’s your home, workplace, a care facility, or even a school, we’ll be there at a time that works best for you. With our flexible appointments, you no longer have to worry about disrupting your daily routine.

We have appointments at the weekend and during the evening so you can be on the road to recovery as soon as possible.

Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation for the Elderly

As part of the ageing process, the body begins to lose strength, mobility and flexibility. If left unchecked this can lead to certain health consequences. But it is possible, with the right intervention from a therapist, to devise a programme of physiotherapy to care for the older person.

Care of the elderly involves a series of preventive and intervention measures to offer protection and improve quality of life. Our team of therapists at Physio Comes To You can offer extensive services caring for the elderly in their own home. This removes the trauma and difficulty of having to travel to appointments, meaning elderly patients can get the care they need easily.

One of the key facets of caring for the elderly at home involves assessing fall risks and implementing fall prevention. This will ensure the safety of elderly patients by reducing the risk of injuries that can be very hard to recover from.

The physiotherapist that specialises in caring for the elderly will first carry out an assessment of the needs, requirements and capabilities of the elderly patient in their own home or care home. They will also carry out an assessment, taking into consideration environmental factors to reduce the risk of falls and accidents. If an occupational therapy assessment by an occupational therapist is believed to be required then we can arrange this.

Fall prevention in elderly patients is extremely important, as falls can damage both physical health and confidence, particularly risking fractures which can be very difficult to recover from. A few well thought out prevention measures can help to keep elderly patients safe.

Care for the elderly can include one or a combination of:

  1. Prevention of injury and fractures including a fall prevention programme
  2. Improvement of strength, movement and mobility through exercise programmes
  3. Osteoporosis Programmes – specific for those with osteopenia or osteoporosis
  4. Remedial massage for relaxation and pain relief
  5. Acupuncture

In order to achieve this, the therapist will call on their experience, knowledge and skill base.

To find out more about the services we offer for older people, get in touch for an assessment or to chat about what we do.
