The Community Rehabilitation program provides a multidisciplinary rehabilitation service to enable clients who are disabled, frail, chronically ill or recovering from traumatic injury to achieve and retain optimal functional independence.
Features of the program include:
• Holistic assessments which include the client's mental and physical health, as well as their social, environmental and economic situation;
• Goal-oriented and time-limited rehabilitation plans;
• Periodic review of progress, with modification to rehabilitation plan as appropriate;
• Effective discharge planning, ensuring appropriate follow-up and referral to other services as required.
The service is managed by the Allied Health Ambulatory Care Coordinator and is staffed by occupational therapists, physiotherapists, social workers, speech pathologists, prosthetists, orthotists, allied health assistants, podiatrists, psychologists (including neuropsychology), exercise therapists and dietitians.
Clients may be treated on an individual basis or in groups. Some therapy programs have been devised for specific groups.
Fees vary according to the program/group and will be discussed with the client prior to service commencement.
