National Rehabilitation Week 2023
During National Rehabilitation Week (September 18th to 24th), we would like to reflect on and acknowledge the impact of rehabilitation especially for seniors.
- Promoting Senior Independence: National Rehabilitation Week emphasizes the importance of rehabilitation in helping seniors regain and maintain their independence. Whether recovering from surgery or managing chronic conditions, rehabilitation services play a crucial role in enhancing seniors’ ability to perform daily activities.
- Improving Quality of Life: Rehabilitation for seniors isn’t just about recovery; it’s about enhancing their overall quality of life. It can help seniors maintain their physical and mental well-being, allowing them to lead more fulfilling and active lives.
- Preventing Functional Decline: National Rehabilitation Week underscores the preventive aspect of rehabilitation for seniors. By addressing mobility challenges and providing strength-building exercises, rehabilitation can help seniors avoid functional decline and reduce the risk of falls and injuries.
- Home-Based Rehabilitation: Seniors often prefer to receive care in the comfort of their homes. National Rehabilitation Week is an excellent time to highlight how home-based rehabilitation services can cater to the unique needs of seniors, offering convenience and a familiar environment for their recovery and well-being.
