We are very pleased to be able to offer 1:1 bespoke phone appointments to provide a range of strategies to that can be used in daily life to reduce the impact of fatigue and breathlessness.
A series of phone calls will be provided for education and advice, discussing techniques to help with managing the symptoms of breathlessness and coping with fatigue.
Information will be provided in advance of these appointments and then specific issues can be discussed with you and your carer.
By focusing on your priorities and setting meaningful goals we hope to give you a sense of purpose while coping with the life limiting conditions you are experiencing.
This can be followed up with a small group via zoom for mutual support.
What is fatigue and breathlessness?
Fatigue is the feeling of extreme tiredness or exhaustion all or most of the time. It can feel overwhelming and unrelenting and it is often not improved by rest. Breathlessness (sometimes called dyspnoea) is difficult, laboured and uncomfortable breathing. It can be both frightening and overwhelming and may be caused by a combination of physical and psychological factors.
