Top 10 Rehabilitation Centres for the Elderly in Singapore (2022)

For our older family members aged 65 and above, even the smallest fall can lead to serious injury that requires a long time to recover fully. According to the National Registry of Diseases Office, falls count for 40 per cent of injury-related deaths in Singapore. Just resting at home and icing the injury is not going to lead to smooth recovery as it can in younger individuals whose bodies can repair themselves faster. Physical rehabilitation for the elderly is thus important to reduce the risk of major injury and even death.

In this article, we’re going to talk about what rehabilitation for the elderly is, why it’s important and how it’s different from physiotherapy. We’ll also introduce ten of the best rehabilitation centres for the elderly in Singapore across different regions and price ranges so that you can choose what is best for your needs.

What is rehabilitation?

Rehabilitation is a program that aims to maintain and improve the general physical health of senior citizens. Rehabilitation is aimed at older people who are recovering from serious injury or illness. The goal of rehabilitation is not just to keep our seniors in good shape but to help them build up enough strength to prevent serious injury in the future. For the elderly, rehabilitation can be targeted towards achieving goals such as:

Reducing one’s risk of falling

Falls are a particular risk for the elderly as they can lead to serious injury that require an especially long time to heal, like fractured hips and broken bones. Studies have found that at least 300,000 senior citizens are hospitalised every year for hip fractures caused by falls.

Re-educate oneself to learn how to walk correctly again

People who have neurological conditions like stroke or Parkinson’s disease may experience significant difficulty in doing physical movements like walking, speaking, and controlling their hands. Learning how to walk correctly involves aligning your muscles and joints in such a way that they can be used in an effective way that lets your body move comfortably.

Improving confidence in everyday movement

Many older people become afraid of falling after having experiences of falls and become hesitant of moving around on their own. Rehabilitation can guide them towards achieving the confidence they need for daily functioning.

Maintaining and building up muscle strength

Without regular use or exercise, the muscles of the elderly will become weaker and waste away over time. It is important to use and build up these muscles so that they can continue to remain mobile. Speech therapy may also be included in rehabilitation to improve control as some older people may have difficulty speaking and swallowing.

What is the difference between rehabilitation and physiotherapy?

Both rehabilitation and physiotherapy focus on helping the body to gradually improve physical function. Physiotherapy can be a part of rehabilitation, and it can also be aimed at long-term medical conditions that don’t necessarily lead to loss of motor function. Such conditions include asthma, developmental delays, and temporomandibular jaw disorder (TMJ). Physiotherapy can also be done for people who don’t have any major conditions, such as those preparing for a major sporting event or even childbirth.

Physiotherapy also involves other treatment methods that may not be used in rehabilitation. For example, physiotherapy may involve hydrotherapy which involves exercising in a small shallow pool of warm water. Dry needling with acupuncture needles to treat inflammation and deep heating with ultrasounds to increase blood circulation may also be conducted as part of physiotherapy.

Why go to a rehabilitation centre?

A rehabilitation centre will be equipped with staff and facilities needed to carry out the necessary physical therapies. Some of our older family members can be frail after a major injury and if we do not know how to carry out the exercises properly, we may unintentionally prevent their recovery or even cause more injury. It might also be hard to find space in your home to conduct these exercises. The staff and equipment found at the rehabilitation centre can help your older family members more effectively with the exercises they need.
