Geriatric rehabilitation aims to restore function, enhance residual functional capability, restore lost function where possible, and improve the quality of life, especially for those who are frail. We focus on respecting dignity and ensuring the best possible health and comfort. Depression, diabetes, dementia, impaired mobility, and much more can be alleviated and treated as part of elder care rehabilitation programmes.
Types Of Care Offering Geriatric Rehabilitation
Just as each person is unique, so too will their individualised treatment be unique. Those receiving geriatric rehabilitation can expect treatment to follow these modalities: mobility training, assistive device prescription, fall prevention, balance re-education, exercise training, and functional training.
Long Term Care (Chronic Care & Frail Care)
Our long term care services provide ongoing care and support to those no longer living independently. This type of care is highly individualised and emphasises the inherent worth of the individual and the centrality of human values.
Outpatient healthcare services are medical care services provided to people after they’ve returned to their home environment. At Faircape Health, we pride ourselves on our commitment to excellence in providing outpatient healthcare services in a world class setting with state-of-the-art equipment on a consultation basis.
At Faircape Health, we provide specialised, compassionate care for people nearing the end of their life, or in the advanced stage of a terminal illness. End-of-life care involves a range of possible decisions, including patients’ rights and choice of medical interventions.
Respite care is temporary care, either planned or emergency, aimed at caregivers. These programmes provide short-term breaks for families and carers to support and maintain the primary caregiving relationship.
Clinical evidence shows that treatment outcomes are best when treatment is administered by an MDT incorporating a variety of practitioners. At Faircape Health, we bring together healthcare professionals from different fields to collaborate on treatment plans for optimal clinical outcomes. Primary and allied healthcare practitioners combine their specialities to administer the most comprehensive treatment plans available.
Our geriatric rehabilitation treatment regimens do not focus exclusively on disease, but rather on optimising wellness, and function. Following an initial complex assessment, the treating physiotherapist will develop a custom tailored treatment plan to improve quality of life, exercise tolerance and overall physical functioning for optimal outcomes.
