Description - Physiotherapy Practice in Residential Aged Care by Jennifer C. Nitz

With the numbers of entrants to residential aged care facilities steadily growing, there is more than ever the need for a text specially written for all professionals interested, or already working, in this specialised area of practice. Physiotherapy Practice in Residential Aged Care will assist all those pursuing excellence in this field by highlighting and illustrating the range of knowledge and treatment skills unique to the physiotherapist. Clearly and systematically written, this valuable new text looks at the physiological changes accompanying the ageing process as well as the physiotherapist's role in assessment, preventing residents' injuries and promoting life satisfaction. Major presenting problems relating to being immobile, barely mobile, or ambulatory are examined. Information and strategies to assist with residents suffering from pain, osteoporosis, incontinence or disorders requiring palliation are covered as well as a special chapter on aquatic physiotherapy in response to the increasing use of pools in aged care facilities.
