Day Rehabilitation Program Services

What type of day rehabilitation programs do we offer?

The day program provides rehabilitation to patients who are well enough and independent enough to come in from home rather than staying in hospital. Patients may also attend the Day Program after their inpatient rehabilitation admission.

Our day rehabilitation programs are offered in individual and group sessions. We have available full day rehab 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.
