Helping hand

A hospital stay

A hospital stay, regardless of our age, can be traumatic, but it is particularly challenging for elderly individuals. Often, it takes time to recover from a hospital stay and adjust to being home again.

Having worked in the NHS for 16 years, I am well acquainted with this scenario. Elderly patients can become trapped in a cycle of going in and out of the hospital. This occurs because they develop a fear of movement at home, constantly worrying about the possibility of another accident. In fact, this fear can increase the likelihood of accidents as their joints stiffen.


Here at The Well Balanced Centre, our goal is to change this situation. We are dedicated to promoting mobility and facilitating your reintegration into the community after experiencing a fall.

Setting goals

Setting small goals for yourself is one of the most effective strategies. After undergoing a distressing experience, it is unrealistic to expect an immediate return to normalcy. Instead, try setting small goals to gradually readjust to being back home. For example, a realistic goal could be "I want to climb the stairs using a handrail." As you gain strength and confidence, aim for more ambitious goals. Perhaps walking with assistance to the end of the garden and back. Setting small goals allows you to observe your progress easily and build confidence.

One of the most effective approaches to recovering after a fall is to commence home-based physiotherapy sessions. At The Well Balanced Centre, we offer home-based physiotherapy in Henfield and throughout West Sussex.
