Navigating a Hospital Stay

A stay in the hospital can be a challenging experience, regardless of age, but it can be particularly difficult for the elderly. It often takes time to recover and adjust to being back home after a hospital stay.

Having worked in the NHS for 16 years, I am familiar with the struggles faced by elderly patients who find themselves in a cycle of hospital readmissions. Many become fearful of movement at home, constantly worrying about the possibility of another accident. Unfortunately, this fear can actually increase the risk of accidents as their joints stiffen up.

 

At The Well Balanced Centre, we are dedicated to breaking this cycle and helping you regain mobility and reintegrate into the community after a fall.

Setting Recovery Goals

Setting small goals for yourself is one of the most effective ways to facilitate your recovery. It is important to acknowledge that after a distressing time, returning to normal immediately may not be realistic. Instead, start by setting small goals that gradually acclimate you to being back home.

 

For example, aiming to climb the stairs using a handrail is a practical and achievable goal. As you become stronger and more confident, you can gradually set bigger goals, such as walking with assistance to the end of the garden and back. Setting these small goals allows you to track your progress and build confidence along the way.

Home-based physiotherapy sessions are one of the best ways to facilitate recovery after a fall.
