Our objective is that of offering an ideal and pleasant environment for rehabilitation, either on an individual or group basis, as the needs may arise.
Within the Residential Care Home lies the rehabilitation aquatic centre including a state of the art physiohydrotherapy pool. This comprehensive rehabilitation centre is designed to help seniors maintain and improve quality of life by maximizing functional independence. We offer skilled rehabilitation services by highly trained professionals in specifically designed environments, complimented by domiciliary and out-patient physiotherapy as required. Our principal aim is to enhance quality of life at all stages by focusing on our residents’ daily activities and functions – we offer individualized attention to help residents do what they wish to do and achieve what they wish to achieve, in relation to an extensive roster of situations that include:
- neurological, orthopaedic, cardiac, and pulmonary rehabilitation,
- strength, flexibility and coordination training,
- pain management,
- massage and exercise therapy,
- balance and gait training,
- fall prevention,
- individual supervised and independent programs,
- exercise groups,
- aquatic therapy and water aerobics,
- health education
The fully accessible rehabilitation centre has been professionally planned and equipped to offer the highest standards of clinical care and fitness in terms of physiotherapy and aquatic therapy. The spacious rehab gym/physiotherapy hall with vinyl flooring, is fully outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment whilst also allowing for a hands-on approach, and offers the option of private rehab clinic rooms right next door.
The aquatic therapy area is unique in being the only one in the Maltese islands to be custom built for rehabilitative purposes, with additional focus on use by a senior population. Residents can access the pool area by passing through calibrated temperature zones that allow the body to shift from the outside environment to a warmer pool area temperature. The benefits of aquatic therapy in warm water in the large variable depth pool can also be fully enjoyed. This is accessible through a dignified gently sloped ramp, or benefit from immersion in either of the purpose built walk-in warm or cooler temperature single person baths.
Everything, from an extensive array of equipment and floats to a solid in-pool perimeter railing, is designed with the residents’ safety and comfort in mind. Our objective is that of offering an ideal and pleasant environment for rehabilitation, either on an individual or group basis, as the needs may arise.
