Our therapists assess the physical, cognitive, perceptual and psychosocial needs of the patients. The team also involve carers and/or family in the assessment process so that their opinions and needs can be addressed. From this, individual patient-centred plans are developed in collaboration with the patient and carer. Goals are discussed with the patient which are included in the treatment plan. Advice and education are central to the rehabilitative process and the benefits of self-management are highlighted to the patient and carer. Patients are provided with a home programme to maximise their mobility and function, this is then augmented through a range of therapeutic activities to address the identified problems and goals.

Activities frequently used include:

  • Specific neurotherapy to improve movement, balance and function
  • Use of the gym
  • Relaxation
  • Group activities (allotment, woodwork, balance class)
