Geriatric Rehabilitation

Geriatric Rehabilitation

Geriatric Rehabilitation (GR) attempts to improve the quality of life in older adults, particularly those with debilitating impairments and/or frailty, by restoring function or enhancing residual functional capability. Current rehabilitation approach emphasises function and well-being rather than disease alone. The rehabilitation of elderly people can help them maintain their functional independence while also increasing their quality of life. Normal ageing due to disuse and deconditioning, cardiovascular disorders such as vascular disease and stroke, and skeletal difficulties such as osteoporosis and arthritic conditions such as knee and hip replacements are all covered by geriatric rehabilitation. Physical medicine physicians [physiotherapists] employ rehabilitation to help patients regain their pre-injury quality of life. They may use physical, occupational, and speech treatments to achieve this goal. Geriatric rehabilitation also plays a role in intermediate care, where patients are referred by a hospital or family doctor when there is a need for hospital-based short-term intensive physical therapy aimed at the recovery of musculoskeletal function, particularly after joint, tendon, or ligament repair, or physical medicine and rehabilitation care when elderly patients fall out of sync with their medications, resulting in a deterioration of their condition.
