People who have had a major illness, injury or surgery can find it difficult to return to the way they previously lived. Whether it’s their mobility, ability to communicate or their wellbeing that is affected, people’s everyday lives are impacted by their new health status.
Rehabilitation can help people be more independent. It can improve the ability to lead a more active, mobile life and it can help people adjust to new ways of doing things.
People who use rehabilitation services include patients living with the effects of:
- brain injury
- spinal cord injury
- orthopaedic conditions
- neurological conditions associated with dementia
Rehabilitation services across South Australia’s local health networks provide a range of care and recovery options. Health professionals with different areas of expertise can work together based on a person’s individual needs, and help establish attainable rehabilitation goals.
