Our care is about giving people choices.
At St. Rocco’s we use Physiotherapy and Occupational therapy to address physical and psychological symptoms which can result from a life-limiting illness. We aim to support you to optimise your quality of life through supporting you to stay as well and independent as possible.
Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy is for anyone whose quality of life can be improved through learning better how to manage their illness in terms of everyday living. We aim to maximise your independence and quality of life through providing personalised therapeutic interventions.
If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with a palliative illness, please phone the Warrington Integrated Pallative Care Hub on 0333 3661066 for advice and support.
