What is rehabilitation?

The Rehabilitation Journey

Rehabilitation is about helping you to return to doing the things that you do each day.

This may include:

  • physical activity such as walking to the bathroom and showering
  • improving your eating and your talking with others
  • helping to solve problems and planning for your daily activities
  • working towards returning to sport, work or hobbies
  • improving your wellbeing and quality of life following injury
  • referral to a rehabilitation service to support your rehabilitation needs.

There are many reasons that you may need rehabilitation. You may be recovering from a stroke, a brain injury, a fall or surgery.

Your rehabilitation should be directed toward the goals you need and want to work towards.
