The sole aim of physiotherapy is to help the person regain the movement and functions of the normal body in case of sickness, an accident or disability. The physiotherapy services at the Home focus on the situation of the particular resident. Apart from the treatment of the problem, physiotherapy might suggest things that can be done on a daily basis to maximise the ability of the resident to move and control the pain in the joints, muscles and bones. It also helps to improve the amount of movement so that the resident is healthier and happy.
The physiotherapists assess and improve the movement and function of the body, with particular attention to physical mobility, balance, tiredness and pain. These professionals also assess the need for types of wheelchairs the residents might need.
