During the week, physiotherapists are available at each hospice or for appointments in patients’ own homes.
Physiotherapists can help demonstrate techniques to ease pain, help mobility, prevent joint stiffness, enhance relaxation and improve function. This helps patients to remain as independent as possible to achieve the best quality of life.
The patient’s individual needs will be assessed and treatments plans made in agreement with the patient and medical team. This could involve providing mobility aids, planning for a discharge home following an in-patient stay and ordering specialist equipment for use at home.
