The physiotherapy programme at St. John's Home for Elderly Persons is one of the vital programmes there to keep the elderly residents active, promotes independence amongst them and is very effective in staving off old age illnesses too.
Physiotherapy exercises are done six days a week, with Individual Care Plans (ICP) for each resident reviewed every six months. The programme includes individual and group exercises (when the situation permits), occupational-recreational therapy and bed-side exercises.
A professional physiotherapist will come in weekly to assess the residents and monitor their progress, and the Home's full-time physiotherapy-aides will implement the ICP. St John's Home has specifically requested that we channel our support towards this physiotherapy programme, as funds are still required to keep the programme going strong.
