What are our exercise programs?
Many of them are performed at the patient's home due to mobility problems. In addition, we involve family members or caregivers.
Our goals are to keep elderly patients active to improve their quality of life. If they improve their mobility, their aerobic capacity, balance and strength, they improve their self-esteem, their confidence and their mood, as well as their autonomy.
We work with patients of different ages and different physical aptitudes and with all of them we manage to maintain or improve their qualities.
