If you require social care and support, for whatever reason, you will more than likely receive care from a range of professional services, not just a care worker.
Angel Care believes understanding the various roles people might play in your care will give you more peace of mind – knowledge is power, as they say!
District nurses visit people in their own homes to provide complex care. Visits might be once a day, or more, and as well as providing direct patient care, a district nurse might teach and support their patients ways to care for themselves.
If you are unable to do everyday tasks for yourself, due to ill health, you may be referred to an occupational therapist. An occupational therapist can identify difficulties you may have such as dressing or shopping, and will help you work out practical solutions.
Physiotherapy helps to restore movement and function if you are affected by injury, illness or disability. It can also help reduce your risk of injury or illness in the future.
Professionally trained and regulated, physiotherapists can offer advice on things which can affect your daily life, such as posture and lifting. They can tailor exercise and physical activity beneficial to you or help relieve pain and stiffness using manual therapy.
