Geriatric rehabilitation

Geriatric rehabilitation has become markedly relevant in relation to the progressive increased mean age of the population and aims to limit disuse and deconditioning due to normal aging, to face cardiovascular problems and to handle musculo-skeletal problems in the elderly.

It helps through the followings:

  • improving balance
  • reducing fall risk
  • limiting and/or improving osteoporosis
  • improving sensory impairments
  • maintaining/improving level of function
  • maintaining/improving the general well-being
  • maintaining/improving independence level
  • limiting potential loneliness, depression and cognitive impairments
  • reducing functional loss of mobility
  • progressive improvement of the ability to perform activities of daily living (ADLs)
  • recovering the musculoskeletal function, particularly of joints, tendons, and ligaments
  • increasing life expectancy
  • improving self-efficacy

We provide geriatric rehabilitation in our loacation in Minusio and Lugano.
