Does your parent need physical therapy even if they’re not injured or have a broken bone?
As our parents age they often get more wobbly which makes them more prone to fall… and as they get older a fall is more likely to result in a broken hip or another fracture which can shorten their life. What if you could reduce their chances of falling as well as improve their ability to get around and enjoy life?
Kim and Mike Barnes of Parenting Aging Parents talk with Jason Decesari, Physical Therapist with Fox Rehab about the role physical, occupational and speech therapy and rehabilitation have for our aging parents. They discuss when an aging parent might need therapy, what to notice, how therapy can help, how to get the parent to want to do their therapy and why you often need to be proactive to get services.
