Physiotherapy helps our patients to maintain their independence and safety. The Hospice’s physiotherapist may also work with family and carers to share ways to support their loved ones with physical movement.

Our physiotherapist works closely with other health specialists at the Hospice and in the community.

Physiotherapy can assist with issues such as joint mobility problems, techniques to help control breathlessness, and establish an exercise programme to maintain function and independence.
