Castel Froma Neuro Care have an extensive on-site therapy and psychology department

Our approach to therapy for individuals with neurological conditions is both flexible and tailored to suit your individual needs.

Castel Froma Neuro Care therapists have a specialist knowledge of neurological conditions which enables us to provide the best quality treatment and support residents in relearning skills such as standing, walking eating and drinking.

One of the very first things we’ll do is reassess just what you can do – we never work under any preconceptions. We’ll help you ease into your new programme and carefully monitor your progress.

Our therapy services include:

Speech and Language Therapy

  • A highly experienced speech and language therapist visits Castel Froma Neuro Care twice a week to assess, diagnose and advise staff and carers on the management of an individual’s eating, drinking and communication difficulties.

Physiotherapy

  • Our physiotherapists work with you to strengthen and improve mobilisation, maximise your potential and achieve your individual goals.
  • If you wish, friends and family can arrange to come and watch a session to see what’s involved and understand what we aim to achieve.

Aquatic Physiotherapy

  • We have our own hydrotherapy pool with qualified aquatic therapists who have specialist expertise in this field.
  • The warm water relaxes tight muscle groups and eases stiff joints and is helpful for individuals with neurological conditions who cannot comfortably exercise on land.

Occupational Therapy

  • We take a ‘whole person’ approach to enable you to achieve your goals, maintain a level of independence and modify the environment to suit you.
  • You will be able to concentrate your energy and pursue new interests and friendships while still maintaining skills and choices which are important to you.
  • Parallel to the clinical commitments, the therapeutic use of leisure time is pursued with an activities programme developed to reflect the wishes of the residents.

Dietetics

  • The speech and language therapist works closely with the community dietician to provide comprehensive management of eating and drinking issues, while diets can be modified to suit all levels of ability.

Psychology

  • Our psychology team will assess cognition, behaviour and mood and tailor interventions to meet your individual needs, to maintain wellbeing and maximise your quality of life.
  • As we know it can be a difficult time not only for a resident but also for family members, we also provide a counselling service to support them too.

Complementary Therapy

  • We also offer alternative treatments to enhance treatment provided at Castel Froma Neuro Care. These therapies include aromatherapy and craniosacral therapy.
