We can help you stay active with our Willen Hospice PREP (Paced Rehabilitation and Enablement Programme)

If you have a life limiting condition, our free group gym sessions could help you stay active for longer.
The sessions take place on Mondays between 2pm and 4pm at Woughton Leisure Centre in Milton Keynes (Sat Nav: MK6 5EJ)
What is the programme?
It's aimed at patients in the earlier stage of their life limiting illness, the PREP programme provides physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, fatigue management and other support. PREP takes place in a relaxed place that’s easy to get to, and provides patients with the tools to empower them to keep themselves well for longer.
Our friendly team of specialists are here to help you.
There are two elements to the programme:
1. Gym Based
Eight week programme. Two hour gym based sessions.
We’ll provide you with the tools to improve your physical condition through exercise and education. This is delivered by a level four gym instructor with supervision from a specialist physiotherapist working on core stability, stamina, strength and flexibility. The education element focusses on wider support services and how to self-manage your exercise at home.
2. Individual Goal Programme
Run by our physiotherapist and occupational therapist, these sessions focus on your individual needs to help build strength and resilience for what you want, need and can do in everyday life.

What do our patients say?
“You have all worked so hard to get PREP running and I am proud to be one of your first graduates. Thank you all for your time, advice, encouragement and smiles. Although it is a committed and targeted scheme we have had many laughs along the way. I now feel confident enough to explore and participate in different pursuits at my own pace. You have helped me do this.”
“It’s an excellent programme setting realistic targets.”
