Geriatric rehabilitation has the goal of restoring quality of life for older individuals who are experiencing conditions of aging, have suffered an injury or are recovering from illness. Rehabilitation programs designed for seniors aim to improve or restore functional ability in elderly people with disabling impairments.
Wellness and Prevention
As people age, activity levels can decrease significantly, leading to conditions including loss of muscle mass, reduced cardiovascular capacity and other negative outcomes. An exercise program designed by allied health professionals especially for older people can have many positive outcomes.
Neurological conditions, a complex and sensitive aspect of aged care support, can see progressive decline in an older person’s functioning and requires a dedicated approach from a team of health care professionals and carers.
