Advance Rehab Centre, in conjunction with the Stroke Recovery Association NSW, has just launched its INTENSIVE STROKE REHABILITATION PROGRAM. There are three streams offered in the program with the core service delivered by neurologically trained physiotherapists and occupational therapists and ancillary care provided for acupuncture, neuromuscular orthotics, speech pathology, psychology and podiatry as indicated.
The most intensive program is the IN-HOUSE BLOCK. This program is delivered at Advance Rehab Centre and offers a combination of individual physiotherapy and occupational therapy sessions, circuit exercise sessions and independent training, up to 50 hours delivered over four weeks. This program is the most powerful in achieving results with the key features of this program being the high dose of intervention and the goal directed therapy. If you want progress, this is the program for you.
For programs needing delivery exclusively at home, the HOME-BASED BLOCK isdesigned for people who do not have access to our rehab centre or prefer the convenience of home-based therapy. Sessions can be arranged either in the person’s home or transferred to their local gym or pool. In addition to our therapy program, we also offer a highly skilled home-modifications, equipment prescription, seating and pressure care program through our occupational therapy team.
The TRAINER BLOCK is offered for people who do not live in Sydney and want to maximise their recovery with the help of a local personal trainer, family member or carer. The program is designed to train family members, carers or other health care professional how to safely and effectively train the individual in their gym or home. The program runs for five consecutive days at our centre with up to three hours of therapy per session.
Each block program is preceded by a thorough initial assessment that addresses current impairments, overall ability level, and pre-stroke function. The individual, family and therapists will then work together to create rehabilitation goals for the selected program.Medicare and private health fund rebates may be available.
