Our Physiotherapy Team enables patients to maintain and improve their independence. The physiotherapists work with patients to manage symptoms associated with fatigue, breathlessness and pain, at our Outreach Centres, in Winsley or in a patient’s home.
We offer the following:
- Palliative Rehabilitation
- Exercise Therapy (tailored programmes for groups or individuals)
- Relaxation Therapy
- Palliative Rehabilitation Programme (COPE programme)
Our occupational therapists work with patients to help them learn new skills and enable them to get the best out of each day, through life skills programmes which support our ‘living well’ ethos and promote independence.
One of our current programmes is a gardening project, ‘Plot to plate’, which is open to everyone and based at Gloucester Road Trowbridge allotments. You can read about the project in the Incredible Edible Blog. We also run a ‘Cook Share Eat’ programme which helps people adjust to changes in their role and develop basic cookery skills.
