McLean’s Physiotherapists play an important role in helping you to stay healthy in the community, by restoring and maintaining optimal function and wellbeing. Specific programs designed by our Physiotherapists can help improve your strength, balance and ability, and support you in the prevention or management of chronic conditions.
Mobility, Stability and Dexterity
By maintaining your mobility, and learning safe and effective stability skills, you can maximise your ability to live independently with confidence and security, and maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, with great family and community connections.
Falls and Accident Prevention, and Injury Risk Minimisation
Did you know that the more power you have in your major muscles, the better your balance is, and the steadier you are on your feet means the less likely you are to fall? We will assess what you need to support you to move with greater ease, prescribe an individualised exercise program to strengthen those important muscles, and challenge your balance so that you remain steady and safe on your feet, and remain independent.
Pain is not a normal part of ageing, but the incidence of persistent and chronic pain does increases with age and illness. We will assess and identify your specific pain management needs, using an evidence-based approach, to support your successful long-term pain management.
Incontinence Management and Education
As we grow older, problems with losing control of our bladder, or even our bowel, can increase. Understandably, not many of us want to talk about it, but it is important to remember that you are not alone, and that nearly a quarter of the population are affected by incontinence. Incontinence is often completely curable.
Whether you are living in residential care, an independent living villa, or in your own home, we can advise you about different treatment options, or help you get in touch with a specialist, and support your choices for help.
Individualised and group structured and targeted exercise programs
(including seated-based, frame-based, low impact and energy)
Physical activity is such an important part of the quality of everyone’s life, and for older people, the level of physical activity can be the most important factor determining the level of independence that you can enjoy.
Regular targeted exercise, using the right movements and equipment, at the right times, all under the instruction of a qualified, supportive instructor, will mean that you are able to maintain great physical capacity, mobility and balance, and overall good health and wellbeing.
Why not try a group exercise class; it’s a great way to meet new people, and stay connected.
Aids and Equipment
There are so many options when it comes to aids and equipment that can make your daily life easier, safer, and that support you in your independence; from home modifications, mobility and personal care aids, to safety devices and aids, bedding, seating and communication aids.
Our warm, professional and experienced team can help you to decide what aids and equipment would be best suited to your individual needs, and where and how to find them.

At McLean Care®, it’s our philosophy that “if it can be done, we’ll find a way”, and our can-do approach to helping you fulfil your goals is at the centre of everything that we do.
