  • Feros Care offers a range of in-home clinical care services to aid physical rehabilitation, injury prevention, and overall health and fitness – such as exercise physiologists.  

  • Feros Care exercise physiologists can develop a specially tailored approach for you. You can regain strength to perform daily activities with confidence. 

Whether it’s hanging clothes on a washing line, reaching into a cupboard, or picking something up from the floor, if an everyday task has suddenly become more difficult, it can have a huge impact on our lives.  

Feros Care offers allied health services specially tailored to the individual and their goals – so you can get out and about with confidence, or simply become more comfortable in your own home. 

One of Feros Care’s exercise physiologists, Danielle, explains that poor balance can be “associated with both reduced mobility of joints and reduced muscle strength”. 

So how do you get stronger in those muscles and increase that mobility? Take 91-year-old Feros Care client, Anne, for example.  

As one of nine growing up on a farm, Anne has always been on the go. Nowadays, although still full of life, her health issues have slowed her down physically.  

Most notably, poor balance and loss of muscle strength have affected her mobility, whether it be getting out and about for a walk with her close friend or moving around the house for basic day-to-day tasks. 

After her walking buddy – who used to work in aged care – noticed that she was suddenly “shuffling”, Anne decided to seek extra support from the allied health services available through Feros Care. 

Enjoying weekly visits with Anne, Danielle has created a personalised plan with some very easy strength and flexibility exercises. Some of these are completed with Danielle, and others in Anne’s spare time, every one or two days. 

“I look forward to her visits and doing the exercises. She’s very pleasant and she puts up with me!” says a smiling Anne with her signature sense of fun.
