Give us a quick overview of your role:
I encourage residents to participate in therapy programmes that are specific to them as set by the Physiotherapist. Programmes are designed to maintain and improve their mobility and range of movement that will make activities of daily living easier.
I also provide information and equipment to meet comfort cares, provide education to staff about Safe Resident Handling and contribute to overall best practice by being part of Infection and Quality Control committees.
