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.
