Rehabilitation focuses on the care of people who have experienced a temporary or permanent disability as a result of an illness or injury such as a stroke, brain injury, amputation, orthopaedic surgery, acute or chronic illness.

Rehabilitation involves healthcare professionals working with an individual to overcome a disability that limits that person’s capabilities and ability to operate within their environment. Rehabilitation assists the natural recovery process and sometimes involves learning new ways of doing things.

Specialist rehabilitation services may include medical services, rehabilitation nursing, social work, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, neuropsychology, speech pathology, podiatry, dietary services etc.

South West Healthcare offers inpatient and community rehabilitation services.
