Talia Pontin

Physiotherapist

When did you join Jersey Hospice Care?
2011 I think; long enough to have seen Jersey Hospice Care change and grow.

How do you make a difference at Jersey Hospice Care?
Physiotherapy is not all about workouts in the gym contrary to popular believe. My role is to enable patients to maintain their independence and to help them to achieve their goals. So really it’s all about finding out what is important to the patient and helping them with that.

What do you enjoy most about your job?
No two days are ever the same. Patient’s resilience amazes me and it really is the little things that make a big difference!

What do you enjoy most about working with Jersey Hospice Care?
Working with the most amazing supportive team.

What you enjoy doing in your free time?
Known already to some, I have a little creative streak! This finds me creating stone art pictures in my free time and I love baking; nothing more relaxing than icing a cake in the early hours of the morning! I try to practice what I preach by keeping active, walking my dog, yoga and gym and even a little dancing!!
