Physio for the Older Adult

Everybody is getting older. The desire and ability to lead active and healthy lifestyles today and moving forward is greater than ever.

My passion and goal is to empower people to overcome personal challenges that the aging process presents and take control of health and mobility by offering physiotherapy treatment that makes a difference.

My greatest reward is seeing the smile on people’s faces when they regain the confidence and control over mobility challenges that they face due to balance problems, falls, dementia and generalised weakness.

The service / treatment I offer is personalised to need, working very closely with family members to ensure rehabilitation goals are realistic and achievable through assessment of need, agreement of treatment programme and treating my clients in their home environment, place of choice or where they feel they will gain the greatest benefits.

I partner with several national organisations providing specialist physiotherapy treatment and training in the skills relevant to the care of older adults including: Hydrotherapy for Arthritis NZ, ACC and, Private Nursing Homes.

I also provide Manual Handling education to nurses and caregivers regarding back care, handling and positioning for their clients.
