Managing Existing Conditions

When you are diagnosed with a medical condition, you may be scared and worried about what the future holds.

A medical condition can significantly impact on your day to day life and the lives of your loved ones.

Each medical condition is different and comes with its own set of challenges, and the one to one support we offer is very much tailored to you and your needs.

We can provide support and guidance to help you understand more about your condition and how you can manage it effectively so that you are able to feel more in control and better able to cope.

 

We have recently been working in partnership to deliver some sessions for those living with dementia and their carers and will shortly be delivering some post-operative support to a group of liver transplant patients.

We are always exploring ways to work with Universities, Public Health, the NHS and other partnership organisations in the region, to support those with diagnosed conditions. Watch this space for more information!!!!

If you would like to find out more about how we can support you please contact us.


ESCAPE-pain

ESCAPE-pain is a 6 week rehabilitation programme for people with chronic joint pain of the knees and/or hips, that integrates educational self-management and coping strategies with an exercise regimen individualised for each participant. It helps people understand their condition, teaches them simple things they can help themselves with, and takes them through a progressive exercise programme so they learn how to cope with pain better.
