How long have you worked for Hospice?
What does your job involve?
My role within the rehabilitation team and the wider multi-disciplinary team is to deliver therapeutic interventions including assessment, physical activity, education and advice. These interventions focus on:
I work with patients with specialist palliative care needs across a variety of hospice settings - the inpatient unit and group outpatient programmes including the FAB (Fatigue and Breathlessness) programme and Your Hospice Your Way. I also run an acupuncture clinic.
What’s your favourite thing about working for Hospice?
The buzz word in the rehab department is enablement!
It’s very rewarding to be alongside patients as they work towards achieving their goals, no matter how small these goals may seem.
No team works in isolation though and it is great experience to work within in a wider team to deliver specialist palliative care.
