Aged Care and Rehabilitation Unit

Placeholder image

The multidisciplinary team works to ensure appropriate assessment and care planning for patients to assist them in achieving optimum levels of independence. Patients are encouraged to do as much for themselves as possible, receiving assistance from staff where required.

The team works with the patient and their family/carer towards common goals to assist the patient to return home with appropriate resources or assist with the transition into residential care, should this be required.

Patients on ACRU are assessed by professional health workers skilled in aged care, resulting in:

  • the implementation of an appropriate rehabilitation program
  • assistance with placement in residential care or coordinated discharge planning to provide the appropriate community support

A comprehensive stroke service has been established as part of the unit offering acute care and rehabilitation for stroke patients of all age ranges.

Associated outpatient services available for patients cover a range of specialties including:

  • Falls Clinic
  • Memory Clinic
  • General Rehabilitation Clinic
  • Stroke Clinic

The unit is a purpose built facility that has dedicated areas for a range of therapy programs to promote maximum independence for patients with rehabilitation goals due to function decline or injury.
