Elderly Rehabilitation

human-189282_1920

Why and When

  • Does your elderly relative need rehabilitation following a long hospital admission?

     

    Does someone you know need help in their home and you feel physiotherapy would help?

     

    Have you or someone you know fallen and would benefit from a falls risk assessment and management plan?

     

    Do you feel you or a family member would benefit from exercises to help with walking and completing day to day activities?

     

    Are you waiting a number of weeks for NHS community services to see you at home?

     

    If you have answered yes to any of these questions please get in touch!

     

    Home visits can be arranged (including sheltered accommodation and residential/nursing homes) with a fully qualified and specialised physiotherapist.
