Will outpatient physical therapy help with mobility at 92 years old?
My grandma complains that her legs hurt and that she has trouble getting up. About three years ago, she received physical therapy while in assisted living and she did very well with it. I was thinking that maybe she needs therapy again since she's complaining so much about not being able to do things and everything being hard. If she can't get up and walk without help, she may have to go back into assisted living and she does not want to.
My thinking is that if she starts out with outpatient therapy once or twice a week for a month, then maybe we can stop and I can help her do therapy at home a few times a week. I figure it's better to start with professional help in case there are issues.
Do you all think it will help? Any suggestions?
