What is Covid Rehabilitation
Our COvid Rehabilitation for an Active Life (CORAL) course has been developed by experienced therapists at Oakwood Wellbeing for people who are experiencing the longer-term symptoms associated with the virus; fatigue, lethargy, activity-related breathlessness, general weakness and anxiety. Prior to the public launch, we are inviting a small number of people who are experiencing long-term symptoms of Covid-19 to assist in a preliminary programme.
The course will be made up of 9 sessions:
- a 90-minute pre-assessment with an experienced clinician at the Chilterns MS Centre in Wendover, Buckinghamshire. CORAL has been designed with you in mind, so we will listen to your needs and tailor the programme to suit you and your goals
- seven 90-minute weekly online structured group sessions including progressive exercise, fatigue management, sleep, breathing techniques, dietary advice and strategies that may help with cognitive issues such as poor short-term memory. The final session will focus on strategies to help you develop future resilience and continued recovery
- a post-course review by your clinician at the Centre to enable constructive feedback for our future courses and to support your planning for further recovery strategies.
The course has been designed by the specialist clinicians at the Chilterns MS Centre, in collaboration with experts in cardiac rehab, fatigue and self-management, as many of the lingering symptoms experienced by those recovering from Covid-19 mimic similar symptoms of MS.
If you would like to join this preliminary programme, please email us at email@example.com by Friday 8th January.
The pre-course assessment takes place on Wednesday 15th January, with each session taking part weekly until the Post-course evaluation on Wednesday 10th March.
