MAKING EVERY DAY COUNT. NOT COUNTING EVERY DAY...
Our Physiotherapy service is available over 4 days per week and provides treatment to In-Patients and Day Care but also has an out-patient service and outreach to community patients. Physiotherapy plays an important role in patient pain and symptom management
A range of treatments, physical activities and exercises may be offered to help patients maximize potential in movement, functional ability and independence, and gain relief from distressing symptoms.
Physiotherapy can provide people with a sense of control over their own lives, helping them manage changes or loss.
The physiotherapy service at St Clare’s Hospice offers a range of services to those in-patients, out-patients and day care guests, who have a life limiting illness.
Physiotherapy is given in either individual or group session as appropriate to need. Sessions will take place at the hospice either as an inpatient, day care guest or outpatient clinic. Occasionally outreach treatment takes place at home.
Our physiotherapist aims to improve or maintain a patient’s quality of life regardless of diagnosis or prognosis.
Patients already known to the Hospice as either an in-patient or day care guest are referred to the service by St Clare’s nursing staff. Patients who are not known to the hospice, but are able to attend on an out-patient basis, can be referred by any health or social care professional involved in their care.
