We welcome you to attend Day Rehabilitation following an inpatient episode of care or if you have been referred by your general practitioner.
Our programs are offered in individual and group sessions. We have available full day programs (three hours of therapy per day) and a half day programs (1.5 hours of therapy per day). Full day and half day sessions are usually taken in eight sessions twice a week for four weeks. You can elect to divide your sessions into 30-minute blocks with any of the health disciplines as clinically beneficial. We also have hydrotherapy packages available and drop-in visits.
Day Rehabilitation is open from 8.00am until 3.00pm Monday to Friday.

Upon receipt of your referral, an appointment will be scheduled with a rehabilitation specialist who will assess you and recommend an appropriate program.

To be eligible to attend the Day Rehabilitation program, clients need to meet the following criteria:
We encourage you to wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing and appropriate footwear to exercise in. If hydrotherapy is part of your program, it is recommended you bring your swimwear with you, along with a change of clothing and a bag for your wet swimmers. It is expected that clients are able to independently change their clothing and use the bathroom facilities.
You do not need to bring a towel as they are provided in the hydrotherapy area.
Clients who are attending the full day program (3 hours of therapy) will receive a light lunch.
Tea/coffee and biscuits are available throughout the day at the tea trolley in our office.
There is also a café, Dolcini’s on the Hill, located in the main building, where you can purchase a wide range of refreshments.
Clients commence a four-week program, with eight scheduled appointments within this timeframe. During the program, the client’s goals and progress will be discussed at a case conference with your rehabilitation specialist. It is at this time that discharge plans will be determined, with a possible short extension if required by the client in order to achieve set goals.
