When a person gets injured or has a prolonged illness, doctors often recommend physical therapy. In the case of seniors, though, that recommendation is often seen as just something to try. This misconception could not be further from the truth. Physical therapy is top quality therapy for many conditions affecting the elderly, from Alzheimer’s to urinary incontinence.

Therapy will help you get your life back on track. If you’ve lost the ability to do even the most simple of tasks, our skilled physical, occupational, and speech therapy team in Eugene, Oregon can help you gain back your independence.

Eugene Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy for Seniors is a regarded practice for older adults from every level of physical ability to improve balance and strength, build confidence, and remain active. A number of people are familiar with physical therapy as a form of treatment to pursue after an accident, or to cope with a persistent health condition such as Alzheimer’s. For us, Physical Therapy is a way for seniors to maintain independence later in life.

At the hands of a trained and experienced Physical Therapist, one can work toward improving balance, strength, mobility, and overall fitness – all of which older adults may benefit from. Participating in regular physical therapy could contribute to improved physical abilities, which can also help older adults avoid falls.

Eugene Occupational Therapy

Our Occupational Therapists work in tandem with our Physical Therapists to improve Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s). Occupational Therapists work with a senior to develop and adopt a routine of beneficial daily activities based on the client’s individual needs. We strive to get our patients back in control of life.

For example, an elderly woman who used to be active with hands-on volunteer work might stop because her worsening arthritis makes her frustrated and uncomfortable. An Occupational Therapist could talk with the woman and discover the right kinds of volunteer work for her to do and find ways to accommodate the arthritis and help her adopt exercises to help alleviate it.

Eugene Speech Therapy

As you grow older, your vocal cords become less elastic and your larynx muscles weaken. This makes it difficult for many elderly people to speak as they once did, and it makes it more difficult for those around them to understand what they are saying. Speech therapy can help teach the patient to speak in a new way, with vocal exercises that will help them communicate more effectively.

Help make your journey back to physical independence and good health a success by working with the staff at our Avamere Rehabilitation of Eugene.
