What is the LEAR Specialist Care Programme?

The LEAR Specialist Care Programme is dedicated to improving the strength, quality of life and sense of wellbeing for anybody diagnosed with any cancer. It is specifically designed to help prepare for treatment, maximise recovery, regain physical and emotional strength, improve body confidence and control.

How will it help me?

The LEAR Specialist Care Programme is designed to optimise your physical and functional health,   allowing you to maintain independence and reclaim your body confidence and control. It helps to ease pain and muscular tension. It will help you to regain your strength and mobility, increase your energy levels and improve breathing. Through Pilates principles it will also help strengthen your core muscles, improve your posture and your breathing. The programme will help to reduce treatment related side effects, including fatigue shifting the focus from illness to wellness.

Who teaches the programme?

At LEAR, the Chartered Physiotherapists leading our LEAR Specialist Care Programme sessions are Certified Cancer Rehabilitation health professionals. They teach a variety of classes including Mat Pilates, Reformer Pilates and Hybrid Exercise Classes. Each individual feels they are benefitting more from their class with the Physiotherapist having knowledge about their personal medical condition and goals.

How does it work?

You are entitled to 15 FREE half hour sessions. Prior to attending the course, you will be given the LEAR Health Partnership Assessment which is a  2 hour session to discuss your current condition and stage of treatment, and for your Health Partner to assess your current movement and function to determine which exercise programme will be best for you.

What will I do after the programme?

After the 15 sessions, you will be invited for a 30-60 minute post-assessment to review your progress and discuss your ongoing options at LEAR, at home or in the community. You will also have learnt how to adapt your exercises and learnt principles of how to exercise safely, and our physiotherapists can guide you into our other exercise classes, knowing you will be safe and able in those classes and continue to have ongoing support from the LEAR team.

How do I find out more and sign up?
