Rehabilitation (rehab) is a set of therapies that help you improve your physical, cognitive (thinking) and emotional function after an injury. Our rehab units provide physical, communication and cognitive (thinking) rehab to maximize your function.

Your rehab care team is dedicated to providing person-centred rehab. We are committed to creating a positive environment that includes respect, teamwork and clear communication. We are united in our passion to help people and families achieve their goals.

Our units offer services from different healthcare professionals. Our approach to care is supported by research. Our rehab care team focuses on:

  • Helping you to become as independent as possible.
  • Improving your physical, communication and cognitive (thinking) skills so that you can return to your community safely.

You create your rehab goals with your healthcare team and your family. Your support network is welcome to assist you in achieving your rehab goals, but we encourage you to do as much for yourself as possible.

These goals can include:

  • Walking
  • Going to the bathroom
  • Getting dressed
  • Bathing
  • Communicating
  • Eating
  • Other goals important to you
