Community Rehabilitation Centres (Home and Centre based)

Home and Centre Based Rehabilitation Services

Rehabilitation helps people to maintain or return to their daily life activities, fulfil meaningful roles, improve independence and maximise their well-being. It benefits a person experiencing limitations in everyday functioning due to a change in their health condition. This could be because of events such as stroke, major surgery, or the progression of chronic disease.

Monash Health’s rehabilitation services are time-limited, goal-focused and tailored to each person. A care plan is negotiated with the client and their carer(s) and may include therapy at home, at one of our centres and or tele-rehab consultations.

Services

General Rehabilitation (individual) –  One on one session for clients with diagnoses including musculoskeletal, neurological, cardiac and pulmonary conditions, falls and mobility issues.

Group Rehabilitation – Group sessions for Cardiac Rehabilitation, PulmonaryRehabilitation, Falls and Balance, Hip and Knee, and Aquatic Physiotherapy clients.

Rehabilitation in the Home(RITH) – The program provides a short term therapy delivered in the client’s home or local community sites.

Tele-rehab or tele-consultations – Some clients may be offered the option of tele-rehab or telehealth consultations.  Telehealth allows people to get rehabilitation services using video calls. This is done on a secure platform which can be accessed online or by phone.

Home-based Rehabilitation Services – home-based therapy is for clients who are physically unable to attend the centre, or those whose rehabilitation goals are predominantly home-based.
