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 – 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.

Improve Your Life Today –and a loved one with Aged Care Massage

I love having a massage, just a gentle relaxing feeling. It’s easy for me to get onto a table and enjoy the experience. What about someone who’s elderly?

What’s more common is for a massage therapist to visit the aged care facility and book appointments with residents.

What about the elderly person that remains in their home and doesn’t feel they need to move into an Aged Care Home, are they expected to visit a clinic to receive a massage?

A number of years ago the government brought in the now renamed “Home Packages” scheme. This was to help provide services to the elderly in their homes. Services include; house cleaning, gardening, occupational therapy etc.

What’s also available under the home packages scheme is “massage” for the elderly in their homes.

Our elderly clients love the experience of receiving a massage. They love a chat with the therapist and the importance of touch as we age is paramount.

I suggest Aged Care Massage to every family caring for the elderly parents or grandparents, the weekly or fortnightly sessions uplift them and it’s such a positive experience.
