My spouse and I moved to Kerang (Victoria) in the last few years, to be nearer to family.
I do have health problems, managed by medication. Fitzroy Street Medical Centre thought I would benefit by strength and balance exercise at Kerang Hospital.
I thought I had plenty of exercise. Home and garden, washing to shops, library. When I decided to ride a bike again - I couldn't - that convinced me to attend exercise sessions twice each week.
When I did have a fall earlier on in the year, the Orthopaedic Surgeon (despite my age), and because of the exercises and day to day activities, I wanted a completely new hip which is not always justified.
I was in hospital for a couple of days awaiting my surgery. I needed the strength in my arms and shoulders to lift myself by the overhead apparatus without calling nurses each time I needed to move.
I looked forward to returning to exercise sessions planned for my needs post op.
The facility at Kerang Hospital is comprehensive. The staff are knowledgeable, encouraging and very kind.
The benefit of this facility is for elder people to prolong being able to go out and about. If surgery becomes necessary, recovery, in my case was quicker and easier.
