Loss of Mobility


Help with loss of mobility in later life.

With advancing age, changes may occur that can lead to problems with a person’s ability to move around, or mobility.  Unsteadiness while walking, difficulty getting in and out of a chair, or falls are common problems as we get older.

Medical conditions like muscle weakness, arthritis, poor eyesight, joint problems, pain, and neurological difficulties (brain and nervous system) can all contribute to mobility problems. Sometimes several problems occur together to reduce mobility.

Poor mobility can lead to falls. Falls can result in broken bones, bruises, and loss of confidence. Unfortunately, older bones are thinner, break more easily than younger bones, and they heal less quickly and not as completely. This may mean that after a fall mobility is even worse. Falls have also been identified as a major cause of injury and death, so prevention is important.

Loss of mobility will probably cause a lack of confidence and reduce physical activity. Activity can strengthen bones and muscle improving your balance and steadiness.

Poor mobility can be helped if medical conditions causing it are diagnosed and treated. If you or your relative have been experiencing reduced mobility please contact our consultants who will assess and device a treatment plan to improve your mobility.

    Persistent tiredness


    Help with tiredness in later life

    Feeling tired all the time is a common problem in later life. Many people complain of feeling exhausted even though they are sleeping well.

    Medical conditions like depression, Parkinson’s, anaemia or an underactive thyroid gland can trigger tiredness. In addition, lifestyle choices like drinking too much alcohol, a bad diet, some medicines and disturbed sleep (common in people living with dementia) have been identified as possible causes of tiredness.

    Persistent tiredness can lead to feeling emotional or depressed. Reduced motivation to take part in social activities in the community due to feeling tired is another problem.

    Lifestyle, and social circumstances will contribute to the feelings of tiredness and it is just as important to tackle these as it is to receive treatment for any conditions that are causing tiredness. Your consultant will discuss these with you and together you will decide what treatments are best for you.

      Shaking and Tremors



      Help with Shaking and Tremors in later life

      Tremors are a type of shaking movement. A tremor can affect any part of the body and most often noticed in hands and arms. They can happen at any age, but are more common in older people.

      The most common type of tremor is called essential tremor which is shaking that most often involves small, rapid movements. The tremor usually occurs when you are trying to do something, such as reaching for an object or writing.

      Other common causes of tremors are prescribed medicines, neurological disorders , normal aging, overactive thyroid gland Parkinson’s disease, stress, anxiety, stroke, too much coffee or alcohol.

      Experiencing a tremor can have a great impact on a persons confidence. The loss of confidence can result in shying away from social interaction due to the stigma attached to tremors. Tremors can also affect activities of daily living such as dressing and driving.

      Shaking or tremors can often be helped or controlled. An assessment with our consultant will help devise a treatment plan that will reduce the effects of tremors.
