Glenside Therapy team

The Therapy team is comprised of a group of dynamic and experienced therapists, including speech and language, physiotherapy, neuro-psychology and occupational therapy. Their specialist neuro-rehabilitation expertise includes management of individuals with tracheostomies, progressive neurological conditions and those displaying challenging behaviours.

 

SPEECH AND LANGUAGE THERAPY (SLT)

Dynamic and experienced in neuro-rehabilitation, the SLTs at Glenside are specialists in the management of both communication problems and eating and drinking difficulties following brain injury. The SLT team works closely with individuals, their family and the multidisciplinary team and will target assessment and treatment to the individual’s needs. The team is skilled at using meaningful and innovative approaches with individuals who have cognitive communication difficulties and has expertise in facilitation, supporting individuals to ensure they have a voice.

We are a research active department with links at UCL. Currently we have a study underway to investigate the efficacy of a new social skills intervention following brain injury.

 

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY TEAM

The Occupational Therapists at Glenside are experienced in the field of neuro-rehabilitation. They use purposeful activity to assist service users to either regain function after brain injury, or utilise compensatory strategies/equipment to promote independence in everyday activities. Occupational Therapists use a range of practical and standardised assessments to assess how service users’ everyday function has been affected by brain injury. These are carried out in the most appropriate environment, both on the Glenside Campus and in the local community. Person-centred rehabilitation programmes are then set up according to individual need and agreed goals, following consultation with the families and the multidisciplinary team. Where appropriate, home visits are carried out to identify equipment and adaptation needs, which involve close working with the relevant Health and Social Care community teams, to facilitate safe discharge home, or other appropriate destination.

 

PHYSIOTHERAPY TEAM

At Glenside, our team of experienced physiotherapists are highly skilled in the care of neurologically injured patients. Neuro-physiotherapy is a specialist branch of physiotherapy which requires key skills of assessment and analysis of movement in order to create individualised treatment programmes to maximise each individuals potential. Physiotherapy programmes are offered in a variety of settings including one to one sessions, group activities and ward based activities. Within our Neuro-Rehab and Neuro-behavioural pathways, we have three gym areas where we have specialised plinths as well as electric standing frames, and balance trainer and  tilt tables. We also have a hydrotherapy pool with an attached jacuzzi area.
