Keep these benefits in mind if you are considering massage for your senior loved one receiving homecare services. You can take your loved one to a licensed massage therapist, or even have a professional therapist come to the house to do massages in the home. Massage can be done weekly, monthly, or as needed. It can also be a great addition to any senior’s current physical therapy regimen.
Before you start any massage, make sure that your therapist knows that your loved one is receiving homecare services and any health issues that they may be facing so that they can make sure they are offering the best care possible, no matter what healthcare concerns they may have.
