Improve Your Life Today –Aged Care Massage Chair or Table?

Many people contact us concerned that their elderly relative won’t be able to lift their body on to a massage table. If they can’t use a massage table does it mean that they can’t receive an aged care massage?

There are many ways an elderly person can receive a senior’s massage. It doesn’t need to involve lying on a table face down because many elderly people don’t have the flexibility to lie comfortably on a massage table, let alone lift their body onto a table.

There is so much benefit of having a massage whilst you’re sitting down. That can be on a conventional chair or upright chair with a high back. When you are sitting down there is still a significant part of your body that be massaged. The only area that isn’t exposed when you are sitting down is the lower to middle back and bottom.

If you’re interested in arranging an aged care massage or want to have your relative or friend assessed for Home Care Packages contact one of our team.

Improve Your Lift Today – Aged Care Massage technique?

Massage for seniors or the Aged is becoming increasing popular with the rise in ageing baby boomers. Massage provides an excellent substitute for elderly people who are seeking to treat a physical problem without having to take additional medications. The last thing a Senior wants when receiving an Aged Care Massage is a deep tissue massage.

Overall a Seniors Massage will be very similar to a traditional massage, with a few exceptions. What’s of paramount importance is that the fully qualified therapist must ensure that the elderly person’s body is treated with kind, gentle and loving care.

Our fully qualified Aged Care Massage therapists ensure that the elderly person’s body is carefully and gently positioned on the massage table, ensuring that they are comfortable. Where there are mobility challenges such as a walking frame or wheelchair the therapist can easily accommodate the senior’s health concerns by arranging a massage in a chair.

The most common areas for an Aged Care Massage Therapist to concentrate will be the seniors’ hands or feet. So much relief can be provided to an Elderly client particularly if there is poor circulation or the aged care client doesn’t have full use of their hands or feet.

Improve your life today – Aged Care Massage for what age?

Quoting from Wiki “people under 30 were asked the definition of old and people under 30 said that old age starts at 60. I don’t know about you but I know many active 60 year olds that can probably do more than those younger than them!

Apparently most people in the UK define old age as 59 or older. To make matters worse people under 25 think old age starts at 54, now that’s incredible. Those that are 80+ reckon old age starts at 68.

Now I’m not silly enough to comment at what age you should think about Aged Care Massage but what I can say is that whether you are 60 or 100 aged care massage is available. Whether you are 60 years young or you have lived a happy and fulfilling 100 years aged care massage can bring you some wonderful benefits. The benefit of touch does amazing things. I know that as I approaching 50 I love having a massage and it makes me feel so much better.

Keep Young!

Improve Your Life Today – Aged Care Massage

Aged Care Massage is pretty common in aged care Facilities. A room is set aside in the complex and appointments are booked in for the duration of the therapist’s time on-site. What is less common are arrangements through Home Care Packages. There are so many elderly people living in their homes who are not aware of the services that can be provided and funded under the Federal Governments Home Care Packages Scheme.

Previously Providers would dictate how an Elderly person’s annual allowance would be used. Now an assessment by member of an Aged Care Assessment Team is required before you can access to a package.

Once the elderly person has been granted a package they can decide what services they would like to receive. This can include Aged Care Massage, Personal Services, i.e. assistance with showering, or bathing, assistance with ironing, house cleaning or gardening. The list of services available is extensive.

How great does it feel when your partner lets you know that he or she has arranged a massage for you, but I your own home. No need to drive to a clinic, simply kick back in your own surrounds and wait for that knock on door that signals bliss!

I love the fact that after a home massage I can just relax in my home without having to drive home, or I can have a lovely long shower. On some occasions my husband just leaves me sleep after a relaxing home massage. It’s such a special gift for friends and family and home massage is becoming more and more acceptable.

Our home massage therapist organises aromatherapy and I simply use my iPad to play the music of my choice.

Improve Your Life Today – or someone else’s with Aged Care Massage Part III

Last week I wrote about how easy it is to arrange an aged care massage for an elderly loved one. This week I want to share with you what happens next.

The provider has visited your elderly loved and carried out an initial assessment. If your elderly love one chooses to receive a regular aged care massage the provider contacts Massage2Motivate and provides us with some background information.

We then arrange for one our aged care massage therapists to visit your loved one. Every aged care massage therapist is qualified, insured and has a recent police check.

For the first visit the aged care massage therapist will spend some time talking to the recipient about any concerns or health issues. The massage therapist will then commence massaging the elderly recipient on a mobile massage table or a chair can be used if the elderly recipient cannot get onto a table.

The aged care massage session generally lasts for an hour and visits are organised weekly, fortnightly or monthly.

The provider organises funding of the aged care massage directly to Massage2Motivate so there is no concern regarding money changing hands at the end of the massage.
