Physiotherapy Matters offer a wide range of nursing home or care home physiotherapy services. For residents who are unable to visit our clinic, we can come in and offer them private treatment. For care homes who would benefit from their residents receiving regular physiotherapy treatments, we hold contracts with care homes and can come in regularly to treat their residents. We also offer regular exercises classes to encourage residents to stay active and improve their mobility. It’s not just the residents we can treat; we also offer our services to the care staff through an occupational health service.
As part of our elderly care physiotherapy service, our physiotherapists will assess individuals and develop a comprehensive and bespoke exercise plan to help the resident maintain mobility, strength and coordination to increase their confidence and independence.
The benefits include:
- Assessing residents’ mobility and rehabilitation needs
- Identification of the most appropriate walking aids
- Identification of residents at risk of falls and implementation of measures to minimise this
- Increased confidence and mobility of residents leading to reduced care needs and reliance on care staff
- The resident’s progress will be observed, measured and recorded
- Regular liaison and hand overs with care staff
Our physiotherapists will work alongside the nursing and care staff to ensure the residents needs are being met and the service provided is being optimised for the best results. We will work closely with the homes carers to help them to encourage and support residents to continue their exercises.
A core element of our care home physiotherapy service is providing tailored exercise classes to care home residents to encourage them to stay active and maintain their strength and balance. We understand the importance of independence and encourage residents to maintain their mobility. The classes are designed to suit the abilities of the residents.
We offer occupation health services to care home workers. Often we see care home workers with complaints such as back pain or knee pain from lifting and supporting residents. By introducing an occupational health service, you could reduce your levels of sick leave due to any musculoskeletal issues.
