Rehabilitation Therapy

The team will talk with you and your family and give advice to enable you to continue your day to day activities as normally as possible.

Rehabilitation Therapy Team

Our Rehabilitation Therapy Team within our in-patient ward support adults with palliative care or life-limiting diagnosis who are experiencing mobility and day to day difficulties as a result of disease progression.

The team will talk with you and your family and give advice to enable you to continue your day-to-day activities as normally as possible.

Where symptoms of fatigue, anxiety or breathlessness are affecting your daily life, you may benefit from learning different ways of managing them yourself.

Goal setting is an important part of rehabilitation and our team will help you establish manageable goals while with us and support you to achieve these.

Our interventions are tailored to the individual person and the in-patient team will work together to promote independence and improve your quality of life.

Visiting the Hospice

We are urging patients, when they are willing and able, to “get up and dressed to feel your best”. If you are visiting a friend or relative in the Hospice, please bring them some clean day clothes. They will need well-fitting shoes or slippers and any glasses, hearing aids or mobility aids they use.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to our Physiotherapist or our Occupational Therapist.  

Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy helps people to live more independent lives and is about helping them to carry out their chosen daily activities.

Occupation means any manner in which people spend their time. For example:-

Your Occupational Therapist may be able to suggest appropriate pieces of equipment to assist in maintaining your independence.

If you are returning home following your admission to the Hospice, your Occupational Therapist will discuss whether there are specific aids/adaptations which may help make your life easier, and these will be set up at your home before you are discharged.  If you would benefit from receiving assistance from carers, this will also be organised prior to being discharged.
