Rehabilitation Specialists Therapies on Thames are extending their services to Oxfordshire, having recently started to provide private Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy to residents at The Close Care Home in Burcot.
“I have been very impressed by the high quality of care shown to the residents at The Close. The managers Stephen Reader and Les Pollard have been very welcoming and are focused on providing therapy for their residents. The staff are friendly and the residents are very happy with lots of activities organised for them. We look forward to providing high quality treatment and management for a large number of conditions including; recovery from stroke, brain injury, Parkinson’s’, dementia and other age-related disabilities” says William Ferguson, Lead Physiotherapist.
Oxfordshire is a large county with people dispersed across open countryside. Many patients may find it hard to access local healthcare services due to travel and convenience. Therapies on Thames provides a home visit rehabilitation service sending private Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech Therapists to your home (a one-stop-shop service).
The NHS provides community rehabilitation services that include care, Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy, particularly for people who leave hospital after illness and who are not able to look after themselves as they did before. However, there are many people who may benefit from additional support after NHS services stop or if patients find themselves on long waiting lists. We can help by sending a therapist to your home to assess your needs and form a treatment plan.
Our Occupational Therapy team recently arranged a home visit for a patient who was waiting to go home from a community hospital in Oxfordshire. There was a delay in her discharge planning and we were able to visit her home and order some equipment needed in the bedroom and bathroom to help her remain independent. She also lacked confidence with her walking so we sent a Physiotherapist to help her practice walking in her home and around her village with a 4-wheeled walker.
Our therapy service in Oxfordshire can help people restore their confidence and regain their independence. Unlike many other services which require the patient to visit the clinic, Therapies On Thames come to you for your convenience. We identify all of your mobility needs so that you make the best possible recovery and we have the expertise and knowledge in community rehabilitation.
“The older population deserve the best Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy service to improve their quality of life after periods of illness or injury. At Therapies on Thames, we are passionate to support the older population in the community” – Raj Senniappan, Director at Therapies on Thames
Our service in Oxfordshire covers Wallingford, Didcot, Thame, Bicester, Watlington, Whitney, Farringdon, Abingdon, Chipping Norton, Wantage and surrounding areas.
