Physiotherapy for Alzheimer's Disease

Here at Manchester Neuro Physio we understand that a diagnosis of Alzheimer?s disease can be devastating. We aim to support the person and their family throughout the course of the disease by maximising quality of life and independence where possible. Physiotherapy may include:

  • Exercises to improve or maintain muscle strength
  • Exercises to maintain range of movement
  • Balance exercises to prevent risk of falls
  • Provision of mobility aids and equipment to keep people as active and safe as possible
  • Home assessments to advise on safety within the person?s own environment and possible adaptations to maximise independence
  • Advice to family and carers on ways to safely handle the person
  • Providing a home exercise programme for the person to complete with support of their family or carers if necessary
Benefits of Physiotherapy include:
  • Improved muscle strength
  • Improved range of movement
  • Improved mobility
  • Maintenance of safety
  • Reduced risk of falls
  • Improved confidence and quality of life
  • Reduced carer stress
  • Maintenance of independence for as long as possible
