Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation is the process of restoring physical and cognitive skills to people who have been affected by a serious injury, illness or surgery.  Your surgeon will decide if you need rehabilitation services in-hospital.

Rehabilitation can help people regain their mobility and self-sufficiency, and allow them to function in a normal or near-normal manner. For example, if a patient has suffered a stroke, participating in rehabilitation treatment may help them walk again and speak clearly.

You might need Rehabilitation if you...

  • Are recovering from a serious injury
  • Are recovering from stroke or debilitating illness

What does Rehabilitation include?

The services received will depend on the type of injury or illness suffered and the services available at the treating hospital. Services may include in-hospital:
