Neurological rehabilitation focuses on improving one’s function, reducing neurological symptoms and improving the wellbeing of people who have experienced a neurological event or have been diagnosed with a neurological condition. It improves quality of life by giving back independence. Neurological rehabilitation is designed to help treat patients with nervous system or neurological diseases. Rehabilitation aims to increase function, reduce debilitating symptoms, and improve quality of life.
Types of Care Offering Neurological Rehabilitation
Just as each patient is unique, so too will their individualised treatment be unique. The types of rehabilitation treatments recommended depend on the areas of the body affected by the neurological condition. A patient undergoing neurological rehabilitation can expect treatment to follow these modalities: exercise therapy, standing therapy using tilt table, balance training and re-education, gait re-education, and more.
Acute care is a branch of secondary healthcare where a patient receives active but short-term treatment for a severe injury or episode of illness, an urgent medical condition, or during recovery from surgery.
Sub-acute care is care provided in a hospital environment – typically after an acute hospital or Intensive Care Unit stay. Sub-acute care and rehabilitation facilities differ from intensive care environments in that they are led by allied discipline clinicians supported by medical generalists focusing on rehabilitation.
Outpatient healthcare services are medical care services provided to people after they’ve returned to their home environment. At Faircape Health, we pride ourselves on our commitment to excellence in providing outpatient healthcare services in a world class setting with state-of-the-art equipment on a consultation basis.
Our long term care services provide ongoing care and support to those no longer living independently. This type of care is highly individualised and emphasises the inherent worth of the individual and the centrality of human values.
At Faircape Health, we provide specialised, compassionate care for people nearing the end of their life, or in the advanced stage of a terminal illness. End-of-life care involves a range of possible decisions, including patients’ rights and choice of medical interventions.
Respite care is temporary care, either planned or emergency, aimed at caregivers. These programmes provide short-term breaks for families and carers to support and maintain the primary caregiving relationship.
Clinical evidence shows that treatment outcomes are best when treatment is administered by an MDT incorporating a variety of practitioners. At Faircape Health, we bring together healthcare professionals from different fields to collaborate on treatment plans for optimal clinical outcomes. Primary and allied healthcare practitioners combine their specialities to administer the most comprehensive treatment plans available.
Our neurological rehabilitation treatment regimens do not focus exclusively on disease, but rather on optimising wellness, and function. Following an initial complex assessment, the treating physiotherapist will develop a custom-tailored treatment plan to improve quality of life, exercise tolerance and overall physical functioning for optimal outcomes.
