Our friends at Bobath have a range of services for adults living with CP.  Their adult neuro physiotherapy can support you in the physical skills needed for everyday life, regardless of your age or how long you have had the condition impacting you. 

They support you with a personalised treatment plan, tailored to your specific needs, and will benefit you to sustain the improvements from your therapy. You can have confidence in our team, who work with you to identify your specific needs and help you reach your potential.

Therapy is a chance to work with a Bobath specialist who can analyse what is limiting your activity and help improve your ability to function in everyday life. Our team’s experience means that they can advise on tips for minimising the effects of your condition or recommend equipment that might be better suited to your needs.

What treatment is offered to support adults?

  • Welcome sessiona free, 45-minute session with a senior Bobath therapist, to understand you and your needs and discuss what we can do you support you specifically
  • Therapytherapy can be offered regularly over several weeks or more intensively over a shorter timeframe if that is suitable

  • Adult meet-ups: the last few years have shown that we all need other ways to stay in contact with our support groups, so our adult meet-ups are now virtual and available for you to join for free each month. Follow us on Instagram to find out about that month’s topic!
  • Consultation: this is an assessment session that lasts 90 minutes, with two Bobath therapists. especially when there’s no formal diagnosis or a particular physical challenge or any areas of concern. Afterwards, a report and home programme is created to address the issues discussed

How much does it cost?

The final cost of the therapy plan will depend on what you need specifically. We appreciate that it’s natural to be concerned about the ongoing cost of therapy and there are funding options available, as well as more information about financial help in Our Information Centre.

    And i would say that if you are in receipt of any NHS Continuing Healthcare, either as a Personal Health Budget, or as services provided, you should get this costed into it if your local NHS cannot provide appropriate and suitably neuro-skilled physio, OT etc out of core services.
