At MetroRehab we have a variety of day rehabilitation programs for patients who are well enough and independent enough to come in from home for ongoing treatments, which include:

We realise how difficult it can be fitting rehabilitation around your life. To make life that little bit easier for you and your family we offer our day rehabilitation program on Saturdays.

What type of day rehabilitation programs do we offer?

The day program provides rehabilitation to patients who are well enough and independent enough to come in from home rather than staying in hospital. Patients may also attend the Day Program after their inpatient rehabilitation admission. Day patients participate in an individually tailored, interdisciplinary rehabilitation program under the direction of a rehabilitation specialist and have access to the hospital’s rehabilitation gym and hydrotherapy pool.

MetroRehab Hospital’s Day Rehabilitation includes the following specialist programs:

  • Orthopaedic Rehabilitation is for people who have had an orthopaedic procedure, fracture, musculoskeletal injury or trauma. For example – hip, knee or shoulder replacement, spinal surgery, orthopaedic trauma and/or amputation (e.g. motor vehicle or pedestrian accident)
  • Neurological Rehabilitation is for people following stroke, acquired brain injury, brain/spinal surgery or other neurological conditions including Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease or other peripheral neurological diseases
  • Reconditioning Rehabilitation is for people who have become deconditioned as a result of an acute illness, surgical procedure, extended hospital admission or exacerbation of a chronic condition
