Our company, Therapies on Thames, was founded in 2012 to support elderly people who would like to stay at home safely after illness or injury and improve their quality of life by providing personalised Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy services.
It is widely accepted that people – especially older people – recover quicker once they have been discharged from hospital and are back in the comfort of their own home, and this has been more paramount than ever during the current pandemic. How quickly they can be discharged will depend on a variety of things including mobility, support from family and friends, and after care therapy support requirements such as rehabilitation, Physiotherapy and Occupational therapy.
On discharge, a patient will be provided with a short- term reablement service by the NHS and social care, however this will often only last up to six weeks. This is where support organisations like Therapies on Thames can be most beneficial for everyone involved in terms of ongoing therapy support, and it is their aim to help the patient regain as much independence and remain safely living at home for as long as possible.
Goals for post hospital treatment vary depending on the person’s individual needs and might include regaining confidence, learning to use new mobility aids properly, adapting or regaining the ability to perform activities of daily living, and improving muscle strength, balance and coordination.
Experience shows that you’re more likely to get better and stay independent if rehabilitation happens in the comfort of your own home even after 6 weeks. We achieve it through home visit Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy or through a combination of specialties.
Our therapists understand the complexities of rehabilitation and offer complete therapy management, periodic treatments or one-off consultations, working closely with you, your family or carers and referrers.
