Re-ablement has been identified as a key priority for the ageing population in Australia. No longer do Australians believe that disability and deterioration associated with ageing are normal and there is a significant push to ensure that our aged population have access to services that can improve their function and quality of life.

Physiotherapy plays a key role in re-ablement but also in maintaining function and even managing decline during the palliative journey. HealthStrong Physiotherapists understand the importance of creating individualized treatment plans based on their residents’ goals and priorities.
