A multidisciplinary approach to illness and surgery
that aids recovery, enabling participants to regain
function and independence.
John Flynn’s Day Rehabilitation Program is a goal oriented,
multidisciplinary service that incorporates individual and group exercise
sessions for those recovering from illness or surgery or who wish to
improve their level of function.
Participants are provided with exercise programs to improve their upper
and lower body strength, endurance, balance, mobility and level of
function. Education such as falls prevention is available and participants
are encouraged to increase their independence by taking an active role
in their rehabilitation. The program is also suitable for community dwelling
adults who wish to improve their performance of activities of daily living as
well as chronic conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and frequent fallers.
The Day Rehabilitation multidisciplinary team includes a Rehabilitation
Physician, Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist and Allied Health
Assistant. Social Work and Speech Therapy intervention is also available.
The program consists of twice weekly sessions for an initial period of four
weeks, which can be extended if required. Sessions run for three hours
and include Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, a group session and a
break with light refreshments.
Each participant is monitored by a Rehabilitation Physician throughout the
program who can provide advice and medical intervention such as the
prescription of pain medications.
Health funds will generally cover the cost of the program, however, a
hospital excess may apply. Referred patients will be notified of their
eligibility and any excess required before being enrolled in the program.
