Elderly rehabilitation can involve many things but is essentially the maintenance and improvement of the general health and ability of elderly individuals. Whether your mobility has changed, you have sustained an injury or need assistance coping at home, Foundations Physio are here to help. Our team has expert knowledge in helping people with multiple health problems who may be suffering with reduced mobility, poor balance or pain.
Based in Fleet, we provide elderly rehabilitation for individuals and care facilities in Surrey and Hampshire including in the Basingstoke and Woking areas. We will work closely with patients, as well as their family and GP where required, to set realistic short and long-term goals. Assessments can involve everything from looking at your home environment to make it safer to providing home exercises and nutrition plans.
Neurological problems, balance, decreased mobility and arthritis are all common problems which can occur as we age. Elderly rehabilitation is designed to maximise the functional and physical ability of the individual, generally improving their daily life. Whether improving muscle movement after a stroke or enhancing mobility after a hip or knee replacement, our physiotherapy plans will help you recover in the comfort of your home.
We provide home physiotherapy for the elderly, either in the person's own home or in their care establishment. Foundations Physio have built excellent relationships with retirement and nursing facilities in local areas such as Basingstoke and Woking over the years. We offer a variety of services and rehabilitation plans to address different needs, such as:
Fully Qualified Team – Our physiotherapists each have a degree in physiotherapy and are specially trained in elderly rehabilitation. All therapists are registered with the Health Care Professions Council and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, as well as BUPA and AxA.
At Your Pace – Rehabilitation goes at your own pace, with plans tailored to suit you both mentally and physically. We understand things will take a little longer than they used to or you may not feel as confident, which is why we devise personalised programmes for you.
Exceptional Home Care – Treatment can take place at your home, whether you’re in Woking, Basingstoke or elsewhere in Surrey or Hampshire. Home physiotherapy can enhance progress and you can trust our dedicated team to provide outstanding care.
Good Communication - When required, Foundations Physio communicate with contacts in the NHS, as well private and charitable organisations, to ensure all your needs are met. We also work closely with families and GP’s to deliver the best elderly rehabilitation possible.
There are many benefits to exercising at any age and we can advise you on what exercise you can and should be doing. From improving circulation and stamina to increasing your strength and balance ability, exercise is an important part of elderly rehabilitation that we encourage. We create effective home exercise programmes and run exercise classes:
Foundations Physio are please to run exercise groups at a number of care facilities in and around Basingstoke and Woking. Each group is structured to suit all abilities. Our exercise groups for elderly rehabilitation are aimed to stimulate the mind as well as the body, and have a positive effect on recovery, pain management and mental health.
Our trained physiotherapists provide home visits to assess what type of exercise you should and should not be doing. Based on your needs, we’ll create a tailored plan to help you maintain and improve areas such as muscle strength and stamina. Specific joints can be targeted with Range of Movement Exercises aimed to increase movement and reduce pain.
