Pain Management Program

Aged Care Association’s Pain Management Program promotes mobility & improves quality of life in the residents. Our Pain Program is designed and implemented by Physiotherapists to reduce pain levels, so residents can be happier and experience less discomfort in their daily activities.

Pain is often underdiagnosed amongst aged population. Chronic pain is recognised as a significant health issue in elderly. The prevalence of pain in aged care industry is estimated to around 50% to 80%. Chronic pain can result in mood or behavioural changes, social isolation, disturbed sleep, impaired mobility, reduced function & many more. Our Physiotherapists can assist the ACFI team to identify diagnosis of pain & implement directives required to reduce pain in accordance to ACFI regulations.
