Therapy services

Physi­ot­he­rapists focus on function and movement to help people to maintain their independence. They are experienced in helping to manage the effects of disease or its treatment and assist in relieving distressing symptoms such as pain, breathlessness and fatigue.

At Woodlands Hospice we offer physiotherapy both on an individual basis or as part of a group. Interventions such as breathlessness management, walking aid provision, TENS and Acupuncture may be appropriate combined with an exercise programme tailored to individuals’ needs and personal goals.

Occupational Therapists focus on helping people to do meaningful and essential activities of daily life and support them to be able to do the things which are important to them for as long as possible in the face of illness.

They can assess patients in the Hospice or in their homes to identify risks or difficulties. They can then help to address these by providing equipment, rehabilitation, supportive risk management and creative problem solving.

Our occupational therapists are experienced in helping people to manage their own  symptoms of anxiety and fatigue and can provide advice on an individual basis or through appropriate group involvement.

Our assistant practitioner works closely with the Physi­ot­he­rapists and Occupational Therapists providing continuity of care to patients from all areas of the hospice service.
