Overview

This book describes an approach to help older disabled persons maintain function and mobility. The group exercise programs described provide a means for the therapist to intervene to maintain function. In addition, falls are a serious and common cause of disability in the elderly; the therapist can evaluate the risk of falls and make recommendations to the caregiver to prevent falls and injuries without the use of restraints. The exercise program supervised by the therapist can effectively maintain mobility and prevent falls.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christopher E. Bork, PhD, PT (Medical College of Ohio School of Allied Health)
Description: This book addresses exercises, activities, and preventive measures designed to promote health and function for an aging clientele. In addition to chapters focusing on common physical problems, the book also addresses other important issues that affect an aging clientele such as cognitive impairment and fall prevention.
Purpose: The purpose is to describe "an approach to maintaining a patient's functional status and prevent further disability." Each chapter focuses on a theme, providing background information along with exercises and activities to improve and maintain function. Case studies are included to help integrate the concepts with clinical practice.
Audience: The primary audience is the physical therapist. Other professionals such as occupational therapists, recreation therapists, physical therapy assistants, and occupational therapy assistants may find this book useful as well.
Features: Most chapters are well illustrated with photographs or figures that supplement the text. Every chapter concludes with recent references that enable the reader to gain further knowledge if desired.
Assessment: This is a relatively short, very readable book that focuses more on practical application than theory. It may prove helpful to therapists and students who are seeking a clinically oriented resource for treating common geriatric problems.
