Our physiotherapy team is trained to improve our patient's comfort, safety and independence and can play an important role in helping to improve quality of life. The physiotherapists enable patients to self-manage their symptoms such as breathlessness, mobility problems and pain. 

Complementary therapy

We also offer a wide range of complementary therapies within comfortable therapy rooms and at home.

These therapies are provided free of charge to patients, family members and carers, by a team of employed and voluntary professional therapists who hold recognised national qualifications.

Occupational therapy

Occupational therapy can be an important part of hospice care, helping patients to remain as independent as possible, for as long as possible.

The occupational therapy team look at what is preventing patients from doing the daily activities they need and want to do. The team help to address these barriers by providing advice on how to manage fatigue, anxiety, or improve memory and attention and self-esteem. Additionally, they can discuss equipment that could better help patients to safely manage everyday tasks.
