Physiotherapy Group – NEW FOR 2018!

Held once a week on a Monday morning

The aim of this weekly drop-in exercise group is to enable people to take part in a tailored exercise programme, led by a qualified physiotherapist.

Exercising can help to relieve some of the symptoms associated with a life-limiting diagnosis, and enables people to remain active and independent.

The group is open to all existing St Clare patients and is a drop-in group. At the first session, people will be assessed by our physiotherapist and given their own exercise programme, adapted to their needs.

It’s a chance for people to meet up and exercise once a week, or whenever they want to attend, to help keep them active.

Our Physiotherapy Group is designed for people with life-limiting conditions, such as Parkinson’s disease, heart failure, cancer and COPD.
