For many residents in care physiotherapy is an essential service. A physiotherapist can make a significant difference to a resident’s quality of life by promoting, restoring and maintaining mobility and dexterity which are essential to personal independence and a sense of well-being.

Physiotherapy helps to breakdown the barriers to enjoying life that can develop as residents become less mobile.

Quality Aged Care Services Physiotherapists can:

  • assess, diagnose and treat residents with movement and other musculoskeletal disorders 
  • provide education and advice for pain management and how to manage and prevent musculoskeletal injuries for both residents and staff 
  • provide assistance and support with falls minimisation within your facility environment.

After the initial assessment of mobility and function by the Quality Aged Care Services Physiotherapist, an ongoing care program will be implemented, which may include individual or group interventions, and will be regularly reviewed.
