In-house gym and physiotherapy at Edinburgh care home aims to stop falls

    18th May 2018 | By | Reply More

    Edinburgh’s newest and most luxurious care home is to have a state-of-the-art gym and give its residents access to unrivalled health and fitness support, including innovative fall prevention classes.

     

    Due to open this summer, Cramond Residence has announced an exclusive physiotherapy partnership with Balanced Edinburgh, which specialises in functional rehabilitation and fall prevention to help older people become more independent.

     

    After joining Cramond Residence, each resident will be given a thorough, initial assessment which the physiotherapists will use to create a bespoke care plan. Plans will be tailored to an individual’s physical fitness, care needs and personal desired outcomes and may include exercise, massage, moving support or fall prevention classes. Residents will then be reassessed every six months to ensure their needs are being fully met.

     

    Cramond Residence will also have a supervised gym, specially designed and equipped to rehabilitate older people and a private, comfortable treatment room for the physiotherapy, massage, podiatry and complementary therapies.

     

    Eileen Gray, General Manager at Cramond Residence, said: “We are committed to delivering the highest standard of care which is why we have partnered exclusively with Balanced, who have a reputation for excellence and results.

     

    “We want our residents to feel happy and independent and to live as active and fulfilling lives as possible. The physiotherapy services will be a hugely important part of this and will ensure each resident receives the healthcare they require from the comfort of their own home.”

     

    Balanced is led by Chartered Physiotherapist, Judith Paterson, who has over 25 years’ healthcare experience.

     

    She said: “We are very excited to be working with Cramond Residence and believe the bespoke healthcare programmes we create for the residents will be a fundamental part of their care.

     

    “We aim to not only deliver safe and comfortable moving and assisting support, but to improve each resident’s health, well-being and mobility.

     

    “We will work closely with the Nursing Care staff to regularly review care needs and to help promote fitness and independence for as long as is possible throughout each individual’s stay.”

     

    The Information Suite at Cramond Residence is now open from 10am until 4pm Monday to Friday for anyone interested in viewing a sample ensuite bedroom and lounge. It is located at 49 Cramond Road North, Edinburgh, EH4 6NQ.

     

    Balanced is Edinburgh’s premier physiotherapy provider, with five prestigious wellness centres across the city and a multi-disciplinary team of Physiotherapists, Massage therapists, Podiatrists and Exercise Specialists.
