Working Out with a Physio Ball

care home visits


How can physiotherapy help you?

 

We have extensive experience in visiting Care Homes, and we are committed to helping the most vulnerable and important people in our community. We treat the elderly for a variety of problems, both acute and chronic.


Much of our work involves helping reduce pain, improve mobility and balance, and regain confidence following a fall.

If your loved one is unable to mobilise, our physiotherapists can carry out exercises to improve flexibility and strength in addition to aiding physical and mental stimulation.

 

We understand that care homes are often very busy, and staff may not always have time to encourage walking and movement.


Your physio’s role.

 

We are a dedicated team of Chartered Physiotherapists working in your care home and providing the highest level of care. We recognise the importance of knowing that you are in safe hands and being looked after.

 

With this in mind, our client management team are here to assist you every step of the way and will answer any questions you may have. We are passionate about helping you to reach your goals, relieve your pain, and improve your mobility.

We are able to visit at short notice and provide regular treatment sessions where needed.

We do wear PPE and ensure that we carry out regular Covid testing prior to our visits.

  • We will carry out a full assessment to understand your problems, create goals and select a suitable treatment programme.

  • If you have pain, we can use various modalities which will help to alleviate the pain, such as massage, mobilisation, acupuncture and electrotherapy practise.

  • If you are prone to falls, we will establish the cause of your falls and for those with a fear of falling, we will help to build back your confidence.

  • We will assess your muscle strength, the range of movement of your joints, balance, coordination, and your mobility, along with other functional movements.

  • If you use a walking aid, your physio will check its height and ensure you use it correctly. They may suggest alternatives.

  • If suitable, advice will be given on equipment that may benefit you in the care home

  • You will receive an exercise programme that is printed clearly with pictures and easy for you to follow when you are on your own or with your carer or family member.

  • We may contact your GP if medical problems need to be addressed.
