What we do

Our Community Therapy Services (CTS) provides individually tailored, short-term, goal-orientated rehabilitation programs to patients who have recently experienced a new health episode that requires multidisciplinary therapy.

We care for patients with common conditions including:

  • Age-related changes
  • Vestibular problems
  • Cardiac problems
  • Musculoskeletal problems
  • Neurological problems
  • Amputations

CTS works with patients and their carers to establish a rehabilitation program. Patients are provided an individually tailored, short-term, goal-orientated rehabilitation program with an emphasis on teaching patients and their carers about how to manage their condition.

Each CTS program is different and is designed to suit the needs of the patient. As such, patients may receive therapy as an individual or as part of a group.

Patients may participate in exercises or activities with the clinicians and they may recommend a program for patients to complete at home. The therapists may also see patients in their home, at the hospital, via telehealth or a combination.

The length of time a patient will be involved with CTS will be established with them, taking into account their goals and capabilities.

Our CTS team includes:

  • Clinical psychologists
  • Dietitians
  • Neuropsychologists
  • Nursing staff
  • Occupational therapists
  • Orthotists
  • Exercise physiologists
  • Physiotherapists
  • Social workers
  • Speech therapists
  • Rehabilitation consultants
  • Geriatricians
