Hospital stays: Overcoming challenges and restoring independence

Recovering from a hospital stay can be a challenging journey, particularly for the elderly. It often takes time to readjust and regain familiarity with home surroundings.

With 16 years of experience in the NHS, I've witnessed the struggle faced by many elderly patients caught in a cycle of hospital visits. The fear of movement at home, fueled by concerns of another mishap, can lead to increased vulnerability and limited mobility as joints become stiff. At The Well Balanced Centre, we are dedicated to transforming this narrative. Our focus lies in restoring mobility and reintegrating individuals into the community following a fall.

Setting Attainable Goals: A Path to Progress

One of the most effective strategies is to set small, achievable goals. Recognising that immediate restoration to pre-hospitalisation normalcy may not be realistic, it's crucial to acclimate slowly to the home environment. Consider setting goals such as using a handrail to climb stairs—an attainable milestone that fosters confidence.


As strength and confidence grow, aim for more ambitious goals, like walking with assistance to the end of the garden and back. By setting incremental targets, you'll be able to track your progress and build self-assurance.

As your strength and confidence improve, you can aim for more ambitious goals, like walking assisted to the end of the garden and back. Setting small goals allows for visible progress and fosters increased confidence.
