Aydoğan Z. Investigation of the Effects of Counseling Service in Elderly Individuals Attending Vestibular Rehabilitation Program, Hacettepe University, Graduate School of Health Sciences, Audiology and Speech Disorders Program PhD Thesis, Ankara, 2022. In this study, the effects of counseling service given together with vestibular rehabilitation in elderly individuals with a history of age- related imbalance were examined. 21 volunteer elderly individuals who met the criteria were included in the study. Sensory Organization Test, Mini-BESTest, Tinetti Balance and Gait Scale were used with Computerized Dynamic Posturography, daily living activities were evaluated with ADL in Vestibular Disorders, and quality of life was evaluated by the World Health Organization Quality of Life- Elderly Module. Before the vestibular rehabilitation protocol, counseling was given to the elderly individuals for an average of 45 minutes. Vestibular rehabilitation training was applied in Computerized Dynamic Posturography twice a week for 8 weeks. After the training, balance and walking, activities of daily living, and quality of life improved (p<0.05). According to these results, it was concluded that the inclusion of vestibular rehabilitation, which is provided with counseling service, in the rehabilitation program of elderly individuals may be beneficial in improving balance, walking, activities of daily living and quality of life.
