Elderly rehabilitation

North Notts Physiotherapy offers specialist elderly rehabilitation in the comfort of your own home. As part of the ageing process, the body begins to loose strength, mobility, flexibility and balance. This makes older people more likely to have a fall and less likely to remain active.

An older person suffering from frailty may find it difficult to complete routine daily activities such as getting out of a chair, going up and down stairs or getting out of bed. Without intervention continued deterioration is likely, increasing the risk of falls, injury and other health problems. Fortunately North Notts Physiotherapy can help by providing a full Elderly rehabilitation program in your own home!
