Physiotherapy

Hospice in the Weald is remaining up to date on the current outbreak of COVID and continues to follow advice from Public Heath England and the NHS. In light of the national lockdown, Hospice Day Service has been temporarily paused. 

 

Physiotherapy aims to improve or maintain physical function and support patient's to live their lives to its full potential.

Physiotherapy can address common symptoms such as:

  • Mobility and functional problems
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Muscle weakness
  • Neurological impairment
  • Fatigue
  • Pain

As well as one to one sessions, patients may benefit from joining one of our groups run by the physiotherapy team:

Breathlessness Management Group
Aims to build on strategies to manage your breathlessness and build your confidence in managing day to day.

Gym Group
The gym group runs in a circuit format with nine different "stations" around the gym, each with a different piece of equipment or exercise which will work the heart and lungs, strengthen joints and muscles and improve balance.

Seated Exercise Group
This is a seated exercise group and so it is accessible to all! Each session will start with gentle warm-up movements, progressing to more strenuous exercise and it will finish with stretches/ warm-down.

Boccia Group
Boccia is a game that takes place in a sitting position. The object of the game is for opponents from each team to take turns to throw or bowl game balls so that they land as close as possible to a special target white ball.
