Older People Service
At Hobbs Rehabilitation we offer personalised respite and rehabilitation packages for older people who are looking to regain their independence and reduce their care needs. Download our leaflet here.
Our Older People service is tailored specifically for those in their later years to enable them to retain their independence and address areas of concern such as falls, safety in the home, accessing social activities or improving their confidence. Our client-centred rehabilitation packages can be provided at home, in the community or at Hobbs Winchester.
Hobbs’ team of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, psychologists and speech and language therapists provide personalised interventions in the form of rehabilitation at home, active respite in a care home environment, or exercise classes held in the community.
We believe that small changes can make a big difference. For the cost of one week in a care home, a specialist rehabilitation package could be provided to increase strength, independence and safety in your own home.

Hobbs Functional Fitness MOT
- Our MOT is a person centred tool that uses a number of different physical function assessments to give older people an idea of how their physical function compares to that of their peers
- Hobbs are using a template that was created by LaterLife Training and Glasgow Caledonian University in 2011, which was designed to highlight the different components of fitness necessary for older adults to maintain independent living.
The functional fitness MOT will test the following:
- Lower limb strength & endurance
- Lower body flexibility
- Upper body flexibility
- Mobility & agility
