Physiotherapy for Elderly Patients at Home

Physiotherapy, Elderly Patients, Nursing Home, Lichfield, Sutton Coldfield, Walsall, Cannock, TamworthAs a home visit physiotherapy service we have a large amount of experience in dealing with patients who are elderly and may be infirm, confused, very anxious or suffering from dementia. We understand the difficulties these problems bring and our mobile physiotherapists will be able to work around these issues with compassion and empathy in order to ensure that these patients have the very best possible quality of life and physical function.

Our home visit physiotherapy service is based in Lichfield and our mobile physios visit areas such as Sutton Coldfield, Tamworth, Rugeley, Walsall and Cannock. Our physiotherapists are able to visit patients in either a care or nursing home, sheltered accommodation or own home, thus reducing the difficult of trying to get to a physical clinic which can often be impossible for very elderly patients. Our physiotherapy service has experience of working with elderly patients with a wide variety of conditions and ailments including Alzheimer's, dementia, reduced mobility, Polio, stroke and severe osteoarthritis.

Our physiotherapists are able to adjust their techniques, language and overall approach in order to maximise the benefits of physiotherapy for each individual patient. We can also create tailored and simple to follow exercise programs that patients can complete independently and safely at home.

How can ThreeSpires Physiotherapy help my elderly relative?

Physiotherapy, Elderly Rehabilitation, Lichfield, Sutton Coldfield, Nursing Home, WalsallA physiotherapist will come out to wherever you wish (including care home) at a time and day of your choosing. You simply need to give us a call on 0788 428 1623 to book an initial assessment and treatment session.

Due to the complexity of the problems that elderly patients face, difficulties with communication, the lengthy assessment process and the need for ongoing re-assessment as patients improve, treatment sessions are 1hr for all sessions including follow ups. It is our experience that this extended period of time allows for a much greater benefit and response to therapy and is especially beneficial for older patients who may fatigue quickly and may need longer rest periods in sessions.

A full subjective assessment (discussion) will be conducted by the physiotherapist of their condition, current mobility and any goals for the future. This can be conducted via a relative in order to make it easier and more comfortable for the patient. 

A comprehensive physical examination of their overall physical condition is then completed. This will include factors such as mobility, strength, balance and posture and again is conducted in a way that makes it easy to follow for any patients who may be confused.

Treatment options during the session may include, balance work, strengthening exercises, falls prevention, mobilising practice and gait re-education. All exercises that are likely to be prescribed will be practised so that the patient feels comfortable and understands what is required and why.

Self management is a key part of physiotherapy and the physiotherapist will design an exercise program that will be both safe and easy to complete independently at home.
