Rehabilitation aims to help you improve your ability to do things for yourself and return to your usual lifestyle after surgery, injury, illness or an accident.
At National Capital Private Hospital you will spend several hours a day participating in a rehabilitation program.
The goal of the rehabilitation program is to get you back to what you used to do.
You will be asked and encouraged to do as much for yourself as you can.
We will recommend equipment and new strategies to help you do the things that you want and need to do.
Common conditions that we treat include:
- Cardiac Rehabilitation
- Neurological Rehabilitation
- Orthopaedic Rehabilitation (eg hip, knee surgery).
Suitable for patients who have a functional disability or need the support of a medical facility and nursing care.
On discharge you may be eligible to access our day programs.
Suitable for patients who have established rehabilitation needs without the need for 24 hour inpatient medical or nursing care.
You don’t need to have recent hospitalisation to attend our rehabilitation programs.
A simple referral from your GP to one of our rehabilitation specialists will suffice.
