Setting target-oriented goals for rehabilitation
In our physical rehabilitation program, we aim to restore and enhance the ability of our elderly clients especially with physical disabilities. These impairments could, for example, be injuries that affect joints, muscles, ligaments, or nerves causing loss of mobility. Post-operation rehabilitation can also be planned together prior to the medical operation.
The goal of physical rehabilitation program and care treatments is to improve our clients’ independence. When successful, rehabilitation care enables one to continue with their regular life.
Rehabilitation also incorporates re-learning skills. Or sometimes it can involve learning alternative ways of performing tasks or moving. Nonetheless, the goal is to have an improved quality of life and well-being by regaining the physical strength.
Dance therapy builds elderly people’s motor skills
Dance therapy improves motoric functions helping the elderly with balance and coordination. It is also useful for individuals with Parkinson’s as it helps to maintain motor functioning. Dance therapy makes it easy to take part, as everyone can move creatively, making physical training fun.
Our physical training program also uses singing, rhythm playing and various other music therapy. Stimulation using music helps the elderly redirect their attention to the rehabilitation task at hand.
Participation in exciting activities, challenging oneself and succeeding makes you feel vibrant and energized. Our medically trained staff will guide your rehabilitation to help you regain your mobility and strengthening one’s personal resources.
