They are an integral part of our care team and include consultants in rehabilitation medicine, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, speech and language therapists, dietetics, specialist respiratory nursing, music therapists and activities organisers.
All of our patients are supported in achieving the highest quality of life, and therapies are planned for each individual with the aim of addressing the scope of their particular needs.
These gyms contain a wide variety of equipment including tilt tables, Bobath plinths, electric standing frames, parallel bars and more specialised therapy rehabilitation equipment.
These resources enable the therapy team to enhance the patient’s postural control, quality of movement, mobility, balance, strengthening and functional abilities as part of a wider disability management or rehabilitation programme.
At Highfield House we have a fully equipped, adapted and accessible kitchen where daily activities including drink preparation and simple meal preparation can be assessed and practised.
We can offer a wide range of communication assessments as part of individualised programmes of care, overseen by our consultant in rehabilitation medicine. These are goal orientated and are subject to regular reviews and numerous validated outcome measures.
We make full use of assistive technology such as Eyegaze software, an advanced eye-driven tablet communication system, to enhance a patient’s ability to communicate, a vital factor in a patient’s well-being and quality of life.
See for yourself how we help those in our care to live well and enjoy a meaningful lifestyle, while accessing the range of rehabilitation and care services required on an ongoing basis, to maximise their further recovery and to enable them to lead as independent and fulfilling lives as possible.

Following the Statement from the Prime Minister on 23rd March 2020 and the advice from Public Health England, we have taken the difficult decision to close our doors to all visitors until further notice. The only exception to this rule will be essential visits by healthcare professionals.
We are committed to maintaining the health and well-being of our residents, staff members and the wider community and we very much appreciate your cooperation and understanding at this very difficult time.
