Neurological rehabilitation

Day programs
Matilda Nepean orthopaedic rehabilitation

Improve function, mobility and independence with our personalised neurological day rehabilitation program

Our neurological day rehabilitation program is designed for individuals who have experienced impairments due to a neurological condition. This day rehabilitation program is offered on a sessional basis on set days and times per week.

Individuals might be experiencing fatigue, muscle weakness, poor coordination, difficulty multitasking, loss of sensation, poor balance, pain, and/or difficulty with speech and swallowing. These symptoms may be impacting everyday activities and compromising quality of life.

At Matilda Nepean, our approach to managing neurological conditions is holistic and individualised to patient needs.

Our patients undergo a comprehensive assessment by relevant members of our multidisciplinary team – which includes physiotherapists, exercise physiologists, speech pathologists, dietitians and occupational therapists – before working in collaboration with you to develop a tailored rehabilitation program.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does day rehabilitation involve?
An initial consultation with a rehabilitation specialist will be scheduled prior to commencing to determine which program is most suitable for your needs. This is likely to include 2-3 sessions per week of between 1.5 – 2 hours duration. Your doctor will discuss which therapies are recommended to treat your condition and they will arrange follow-up consultations throughout your program.
Do I need a referral to access a rehabilitation program?

A referral is required from your GP or specialist to access one of our programs. You will be assessed by our rehabilitation specialist once your referral has been processed.

  • How do I dress and what do I bring to a rehabilitation session?
  • comfortable clothes for exercise
  • suitable covered footwear
  • water bottle
  • towel and swimming costume for hydrotherapy
What are the fees and charges for day rehabilitation?
Most patients with private health cover will have a no-gap payment, which means your health fund will cover 100% of the program.

Our team will be able to assist and advise what payments will be made by your health fund, and if there are any out-of-pocket expenses. For example, some health funds charge an excess or co-payment if you have not had any other hospital admissions in the current year.

Other options for payment include self-funding, Department Veterans’ Affairs, Comprehensive Third Party and Work Cover.

Do you provide assistance with transport?
If you’re not able to organise your own transport, we may be able to provide transport to and from the hospital – depending on your location – for a small cost. Our administration team will be pleased to assist with any transport requirements.
What are the hours of operation for the rehabilitation program?
Our day rehabilitation programs operate Monday to Friday between 8.00am-4.00pm.
