Recovery from COVID-19
Recovery from COVID-19 (coronavirus)
If you, or a loved one are experiencing any symptoms or side effects after your recovery from COVID-19 (coronavirus), then we may be able to help you at Circle Rehabilitation.
People who have recovered from COVID-19 are finding that they are left with other conditions which are making life difficult for them and their families. Along with the health implications on the person, there are also other implications affecting their life, such as relationships and the ability to work or to look after children and dependants.
Symptoms you may experience following recovery from COVID-19 (coronavirus) include:
- Problems with memory or concentration
- Low mood
- Breathlessness and/ or a cough
- Stress and anxiety
- Weakness in exercise and activity
- Loss of energy and fatigue
- Problems with your voice or swallowing
Those who are recovering from COVID-19 may experience all or some of these new symptoms. Everyone’s recovery is different, which is why we create a private rehabilitation plan at Circle Rehabilitation, which is individual to you.
Individuals are affected differently. The World Health Organisation says that it takes approximately 14 days for people with mild cases to recover, and three to six weeks for people with severe or critical illnesses, however this may vary from person to person.
At Circle Rehabilitation, we will put together a care plan for you based around your needs. Lots of people are experiencing different recoveries, so if you were in hospital or you managed it at home we can help you. There will be options to stay at our dedicated rehabilitation centre or we can support you at home.
Our multi-disciplinary private team of professionals at Circle Rehabilitation will work with you to give you the support and care needed to recover.
This team comprises of:
- Specialist consultants
- Specialist rehabilitation consultants
- Occupational therapists
- Speech and language therapists
- Rehabilitation assistants
- Social workers
Recovery from COVID-19 has many factors. At Circle Rehabilitation, we believe that a whole-person approach is the best one.
For example, a person may experience shortness of breath, distress, mild cognitive impairment and fatigue – ‘just’ treating one of those symptoms may mean that the others remain unaddressed or exacerbated.
Absolutely. Most people who have recovered from COVID-19 have been in the community – even though you have not been in hospital you may be experiencing new symptoms associated with what your body has endured during your illness. Our private service at Circle Rehabilitation is for people recovering from COVID-10 whether that has been in hospital or elsewhere.
