Geriatric Care

Jeanne has a passion for working with the elderly. Her approach is to use gentle but progressive exercise to restore or maintain mobility, independence and quality of life.

She has worked with the elderly recovering from cancer, strokes and heart attacks and those who have been diagnosed with debilitating diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Some of her patients simply want to get stronger and continue an active lifestyle.

Areas that Jeanne focuses on during her Biokinetics treatment include:

  • Improving balance
  • Strengthening muscles especially those of legs and hips
  • Strengthening core muscles
  • Improving flexibility
  • Improving posture

Jeanne visits Merrowdown Country Club one morning a week where she visits her elderly patients in their homes.
Home visits can be arranged by contacting her here.
