Aims

It is our ultimate goal to rehabilitate our residents, enabling them to become as independent as possible so that they can re-establish or find a new pattern of life and continue to live their lives their way.

Each individual is supported by their own bespoke care pathway. To ensure continuity of care and a smooth transition between services we work with patients and their families through each stage of the rehabilitation process from acute rehabilitation to community outreach in their own home.

Our aims are simple: To establish a care pathway that includes patient specific treatment programmes to facilitate the best possible recovery of those in our care To enable our patients to live as independently as possible, within the scope of their rehabilitation, to enhance their quality of life in a stimulating and caring environment To find out more about our care pathway, click on the link below:

Services

Bagshot Park and Kingston Rehabilitation Centres specialise in delivering neurorehabilitation, specialist nursing, tracheostomy care, long-term complex disability management and post-COVID rehabilitation.

Our teams are led by a Consultant in Rehabilitation, experienced in the management of long-term conditions and complex disability, and who is able to offer support, recommendations and guidance on day to day service provision.

Many of the conditions that cause disability will require care and specialist input from experienced multidisciplinary teams (MDT). We take pride in having specialist skills and expertise to deal with complex issues surrounding disability, both for the patient and the family.

As well as inpatient rehabilitation, our teams are able to provide both outpatient therapy and community support. Personalised rehabilitation pathways are delivered through our expert multidisciplinary teams consisting of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, psychologists and rehabilitation assistants.

Neurological Rehabilitation
We provide rehabilitation services for a broad spectrum of Neurological conditions, including, stroke, brain injury and spinal cord injury. Residents, families and the multidisciplinary team work closely together to formulate long and short-term goals and strategies to improve quality of life.

We also facilitate community activities based on hobbies and lifestyle interests.

Our central aim is to improve quality of life, maximise independence and minimise the effect of impairment on daily living.
Specialist Nursing Care & Tracheostomy Management
Our nurses are all trained to provide specialist nursing care to patients with highly complex physical disability and cognitive needs. They are highly skilled in the management of symptoms arising from neurological conditions; namely, PEG management, catheter care and specifically Tracheostomy care.

Our nurses and physiotherapists are also able to provide complex care for those who require regular maintenance of respiratory function and the prevention of infections.
Long-Term Complex Care & Complex Disability Management
Since Neurological Conditions sometimes have enduring care needs, our team is trained to manage such needs and we are able to offer long-term complex placements.

Our rehabilitation centres provide support to persons with progressive neurological conditions, such as, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease and Motor-Neuron Disease.
Covid Rehabilitation
COVID-19 is resulting in an increased need for rehabilitation. This is required for those who have been hospitalised with COVID-19, many of whom are older and with underlying health problems. These patients will often experience fatigue and reduced cardiovascular fitness. Research has shown possible neurological impacts of COVID-19 with some patients experiencing stroke or seizure activity due to abnormalities in blood clotting or a lack of oxygen to the brain, resulting in cognitive impairments.

Rehabilitation can also be needed for those who have become deconditioned as a result of reduced activity, social isolation, and an inability to access healthcare for pre-existing or new illnesses during the pandemic.

We can offer rehabilitation following hospital admissions and COVID treatments to provide ongoing physical, neurological and respiratory support as well as discharge planning for individuals prior to returning home
Post-Surgical Orthopaedic with Rehabilitation
We provide high-end hospitality services for individuals requiring some additional time in a care environment following elective orthopaedic surgeries.

Supplementary physiotherapy services are also available to help you return to your previous level of function and independence before returning home.

Physiotherapy & Hydrotherapy
The Physiotherapy team work with the MDT to provide specialist rehabilitation and support patients to achieve their goals. They are highly skilled to provide a full neurological or orthopaedic assessment and treatment interventions including hydrotherapy, electrical stimulation, spasticity management, gait re-education, 24-hour postural management and respiratory physiotherapy and tracheostomy care.

Both rehabilitation services offer access to a hydrotherapy pool that are accessible to all residents.

Hydrotherapy can be used to treat a range of neurological and musculoskeletal conditions as part of a wider physiotherapy programme. It has many benefits for the treatment and management of complex conditions, including strengthening, relaxation and improving cardiovascular fitness
Occupational Therapy
Our Occupational Therapists offer specialist assessment and treatment with practical support to enable our patients to maximise their functional independence and work closely alongside carers and families to provide education and training as needed to promote this independence. They are able to offer assessment and provision of custom-made hand splints and work with the MDT to offer postural and seating advice.

To practise skills learnt in therapy sessions, community visits and access to a therapy assessment kitchen are also available with the support of our Occupational Therapists.
Speech & Language Therapy
Our Speech and Language Therapists work with people with a range of speech, communication and swallowing difficulties as a result of neurological illness or injury. These difficulties can include aphasia, dysarthria, dysphagia and cognitive communication disorder.

We offer comprehensive assessment and treatment to enable patients to manage their difficulties. We assist patients to develop more effective skills and strategies for eating/drinking and communication and work closely alongside carers and families to provide guidelines to support these strategies. We will also assess needs for assistive technology to enhance communication.
Psychology
Our psychology team will complete detailed assessments of cognitive functions, behaviour and emotional well-being. Within therapy the team will teach patients to use strategies to manage or overcome these issues and to help to reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression. They also work to promote independence with executive functioning, memory and activities of daily living through close working with occupational therapists to ensure continuity of care.

We recognise that neurological illness or injury has an impact on the whole family and so our psychology team will work closely with the patient’s family, friends and carers to help them to understand the condition and engage them in using rehabilitation strategies that work for all.
Reablement
Our reablement care packages will support you to do things for yourself and to continue to live your life your way whilst enabling you to remain in your own home.

Our support workers are trained to observe, encourage and prompt you to re-learn skills you may have lost, or to teach you new skills to help you to adapt and achieve a new level of independence. We can also provide an assessment and home set-up service with our Occupational Therapists.

They can visit your home to assess for any additional equipment needs and environmental changes you may require to help you in maintaining your independence in your own home.

Alice Bruce
I am a Physiotherapist by background and have been working in the NHS for the last 11 years. I have worked in many settings both acute hospitals and rehabilitation.

Throughout my career I have worked with a range of patients and clients with a variety of conditions and care needs.

In the last 5 years I have been working as the team lead Physiotherapist in intensive care providing rehabilitation and respiratory support for critically unwell patients.

I am passionate about all things rehab and respiratory with a dedicated interest in Tracheostomy & ventilation.

Starting January 2021 I will be the Clinical Head of Rehab Services which I am very much looking forward to.

Maria Garcia
Helen Watson
I am the Business Relationship Manager for Rehab Services and have been with CHD Rehabilitation for six years.

I began working in healthcare with a role in the Community Respiratory team at Leatherhead Hospital. I then moved onto the acute wards working in stroke rehab, respiratory and ICU at Epsom Hospital before starting at Bagshot Park.

Having experienced a multitude of sporting injuries growing up I was initially prompted to study Sports Therapy. Following this I furthered my education studying physiotherapy at Huddersfield University. Throughout my studies I gained a particular interest in neurorehabilitation and knew this was where I wanted to focus my career.

I think CHD Rehabilitation is different to other services as we are able to deliver very bespoke packages of care that truly are patient centred. We listen to the needs of the individual every step of their journey with us.
Leanne McHugh
Before starting my OT training, I worked as a rehabilitation assistant in a neurorehabilitation ward and in the community, delivering both occupational therapy and physiotherapy intervention. I then went off to study Occupational Therapy at the University of the West of England; here, I undertook placements in community neurorehabilitation, and at a specialist brain injury rehabilitation centre, which I loved.

After qualifying, I worked in the community rehabilitation team in West London, where I worked with individuals with a range of conditions such as MS, MND, stroke, brain injury and orthopaedic conditions. I then moved onto Northwick Park hospital, where I worked across the acute rehab wards, A&E and the rapid response team.

However, I knew that neuro rehabilitation was where I wanted to specialise, and so I applied for a senior role. I started my senior role in the community rehabilitation team as newly qualified, and held both a general rehabilitation caseload and neuro specialist caseload. When I saw that CHD had an opening for an occupational therapist role a year and a half ago, I jumped at the chance as I wanted to use my clinical skills in a specialist inpatient rehab service.
David Brown
My name is David Brown I am a speech and language therapist specialising in neurorehabilation, voice disorders and critical care. I have worked with CHD Rehabilitation since 2012.

I initially worked in the banking industry but began volunteering - supporting children and adults with communication difficulties.

I enjoyed it so much I decided to go to university to retrain as an SLT and started my training in 2004.

I started my career as a speech and language therapist working for the NHS seeing patients in an acute stroke unit and also a stroke rehabilitation centre. I have also worked in the community seeing patients with neurological conditions in their own homes.

CHD Rehabilitation is different, here we have a genuine drive to do the very best for our residents and to work as a closely aligned multi-disciplinary team.
Grace Masoapatali
I became interested in rehabilitation during my previous role where I was working in a service for people with complex disorders.

My journey in the rehab world is still relatively new, but I enjoy learning from the team around me.

I enjoy being part of a team that provides a second chance at independence for people who have had life changing events happen to them.

I joined CHD Rehabilitation just over a year ago and in my role within the rehabilitation services at CHD Living, I spend my time helping service users who are dealing with brain injury through stroke or trauma. Those affected are often coming to terms with big life changes, such as the way they think, their organisational skills, the speed with which they perform tasks, and poor memory. Difficulties with everyday tasks can lead to depression, as well as social and health anxiety.

Following completion of her BSc and MSc studies at Essex University, Grace is hoping to complete a Doctorate in Psychology and become a qualified practitioner.
Maria Garcia
I graduated with Hons BSc Physiotherapy from UEL and completed my junior rotations in London hospitals before specialising in Neuro at Kings College hospital where I worked for approx. 7 years

I always enjoyed working with patients and helping them to achieve their goals. Within rehab you really get to know the patients and family and have the time to work on what they want to achieve.

I have worked at CHD Rehabilitation since 2013.

The most rewarding part of my career is seeing the changes in patients and increased independence. We set the goals with the patients within the first 2 weeks and start to plan what they would need to achieve for discharge.

It is very rewarding to see what they can achieve and the smiles on the faces of the resident and family members when they them walking for 1st time, or on standing frame.

We often have a few tears of joy from the carers (and manager) as well!
