Elderly

Merete has vast experience in treating the elderly

Prior to studying physiotherapy Merete worked for 4 years at nursing and residential homes for the elderly.  This experience has given her the knowledge and understanding of how to give the very best care and treatment of the elderly, in psychological as well as physical needs.  As we get older we tend to become less mobile.  Our joints become stiffer, muscles become weaker and our balance and stability is affected.  

Physiotherapy can often help with increasing mobility, confidence, independence and quality of life.   Treatment sessions can take place in Japonica Clinic, and of course you are welcome to be escorted by a friend or carer, however sometimes leaving the house can be a worry and so you may prefer to have treatment in your own home which can also be arranged (although there is an additional fuel / transport charge).
