Caring of our seniors is perhaps one of the greatest responsibility we have.Those who walked before us have given so much and made possible the life we all enjoy. However, they will eventually require health care and assistance for a better quality of life, especially as aging goes on.
Geriatric patients will have multiple complains due to the degeneration of the body. Most of them will also have underlying conditions that might contribute to the worsening of pain, increasing risk of fall and reducing in mobility.
The purpose of physiotherapy on geriatric patients is to make them more independent and confident thus improving their sense of well being.
Never make them to feel that they are a burden.
