Geriatric Care – Planning and Coordinating Care of the Elderly & Others
Geriatric care refers to care of people above 60 years of age. As this group of people is highly vulnerable to many health problems like joint pains, muscles weakness, reduced endurance, loss of balance leading to frequent falls, reduced cardio-pulmonary endurance and many others.
One of the most common problem that the old age people have is loss of self- confidence to do prescribed exercises until unless properly guided by a competent Physiotherapist. Elderly Care is one of the most important specialities in Physiotherapy as there is always a need to make elders self-dependent and lead a better and healthier life. Paralysis, Parkinson’s , arthritis and falls are some very common conditions that an old person faces. Other common problem is Osteoporosis that makes bones weak and prone to fractures. Therapeutic exercises are very important part of elderly care.
