Rowan Lodge Welcomes Gfitness for Physiotherapy at the Home
Residents leading an active and healthy lifestyle is a main focus at Rowan Lodge. That is why the care home offers weekly group exercises and a clinic where residents can have one-to-one consultations with a Physiotherapist.
Physiotherapy plays an important role at Rowan Lodge because it helps maintain resident’s mobility, prevents falls and helps to train the staff in best movement practices.
Although physiotherapy is not a regulatory compliance for the home to provide, Forest Care believes it is a vital service care homes should be offering. For this reason, we include physiotherapy at no additional cost.
Rowan Lodge welcomes Richard Strawn from Gfitness to run the chair-based exercise classes, which the residents thoroughly enjoy.
Staff comment that “It’s great to see residents actively participating. The group exercises always bring a smile to their faces. We’re not sure who’s having more fun, the residents or the staff!”.
Rowan Lodge is one of four care homes run by Forest Care, a family-owned and managed company based in North Hampshire and Surrey. Whether your loved one needs residential, dementia, nursing or respite care, Rowan Lodge is on hand to provide professional, yet home from home care.
