Elderly Care – Physiotherapy for Elderly at Home
As the years go by, our bodies slow down and we find ourselves lagging physically, unable to move as nimbly as we used to in our prime years. Whether it be climbing upstairs, walking longer distances, or even getting out of bed, but the effects of aging are certainly there. Thus we believe that with the right care and physiotherapy, the effects of aging can be slowed down.
The Problem With Aging
As our bodies gain age, we lose muscle mass, bone density, and balancing capability. Our joints begin to stiffen so we can no longer move like we used to. Hence, this can have unsafe implications. Injury from falling is an incredibly dangerous yet common complication for the elderly, leading to often permanent damage and increased risk of subsequent falls.
Many older people have several conditions so this heightens the need for Physiotherapy. Here are some examples:
- Previous falls
- Cardiovascular conditions
- Neurological conditions
There is an increased need for Physiotherapy in these situations and that is why Physiotherapy is becoming the norm for maintaining the health of the elderly. Therefore, it is essential in slowing down the effects of aging and nipping other complications in the bud.
How we help With Aging
Our professionals will visit the home of the elderly and perform an extensive evaluation with their input: complications, problems will be discussed and objectives, routines, exercises will be implemented.
The root of the problem is inactivity. For example, the joints stiffen, and muscles weaken. Additionally, this may lead to loss of mobility and other difficulties. Some of the benefits from Physiotherapy include
- Improves cardiovascular function thus reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases
- Decreases risk of developing Diabetes
- Decreases risk of dangerous falls
- Improves general mobility thus making it easier to perform regular daily functions
- Lowers blood pressure and cholesterol levels
- Helps in managing conditions (Osteoporosis, Parkinson’s disease, and Dementia)
