Community Physiotherapy Rehabilitation Kit

Organisation : Domiciliary Physiotherapy Team, East Lothian Community Hospital
Grant Amount : £ 2,000
Project Dates : August 2019 to January 2020

To supply the East Lothian Domiciliary Physiotherapy team with essential¬† rehabilitation equipment in the form of a ‘Community Rehabilitation kit’ to deliver high quality, effective rehabilitation to individuals in the community.

Domiciliary physiotherapy patients are house bound, presenting with multiple co morbidities including Orthopaedic, Neurological and Respiratory conditions, dementia and falls. This leads to reduced balance, co ordination, strength and ability to manage daily activities at home.

Many of our patients are unable to access local rehabilitation equipment and services such as out patient gyms or exercise classes. The purpose of the rehabilitation kit is to provide effective, high quality rehabilitation to house bound adults in the community, optimising functional recovery, independence and well being.
