We offer physiotherapy to all babies, children and young people aged 0-18 years (as appropriate). Many have the following symptoms as a result of their conditions and may benefit from physiotherapy:
At each hospice there is a team of qualified physiotherapists registered with the health professionals council, who work as part of a multi-disciplinary team to support the development and delivery of individual care plans. We are flexible in our ability to provide physiotherapy as part of a short break in one of our hospices or as part of an outreach visit in the family home.
Either way, families can access expert advice and support on physiotherapy as part of a child’s ongoing care – this could include positioning (sleeping and sitting), equipment and treatment. Our team can also ensure all appropriate resources are available and liaise with other healthcare professionals involved in the care of a child or young person.
