Symptom management for people experiencing breathlessness
Breathing Space is a weekly outpatient clinic for people living with a terminal illness and experiencing breathlessness. The session offers practical exercises, advice and support to manage symptoms and improve quality of life.
Over a number of weeks we will aim to reduce the sensation of breathlessness and help you to cope with longstanding breathlessness and the effects it may have on your everyday life.
Our approach is to tailor our support to you, understanding your personal experience of living with breathlessness and associated symptoms such as cough, fatigue and anxiety. Our aim is to offer support specifically to your needs, with the aim of helping you feel more in control of your symptoms. As part of this, we can adjust the pace of the service to suit you and shorten your appointments if they are too tiring.
We work as a multidisciplinary team which means that you will have access to a doctor, physiotherapist, pharmacist and our wellbeing team. We may also discuss referring you on to other professionals that we think could help you.
The clinic is usually delivered over a 5 week period of weekly outpatient appointments. This allows you to access our different professionals as we find that this is the most effective way of helping breathlessness, and enables you to build on what we have done in the weeks before.
Appointments initially take place at our Crimple House hospice, located on Hornbeam Park, Harrogate. Further appointments may be over the phone, at the hospice or in your own home according to your needs.
We do recommend that, if possible, you bring a family member or carer with you to the clinic appointments, so that we can all work together
