Positive Rehab at Work

The Homes has recently procured the services of Positive Rehab and is noting good results developing for various residents. Flowing from the motto Together we can make a difference, Positive Rehab’s focus is to provide pain management to all residents who are experiencing pain. The benefits of pain management for residents include improving ease and quality of movement, improved confidence and motivation to keep moving, reduces risk of falls, improved socialisation, and reduced dependence on pharmacological administration. Care staff too benefit when residents are functionally and emotionally better off; there is less reporting of falls and less injuries to care staff. Also, group sessions help residents to catch up with their neighbours and encourage one another.
