The facility is situated in spacious garden surroundings in the suburb of Northfield South Australia, 10 kilometers north-east of the Adelaide city Centre.
"Rehabilitation is a process of restoring function through re-learning lost abilities or finding new ways of doing everyday activities to maximise lifestyle. Rehabilitation is very different from being “treated” in an acute hospital care setting. In all areas trained allied health, medical and nursing staff work with clients, client’s families and friends, and others, to design and implement rehabilitation programs using an integrated team approach".
