Rehabilitation Services at SALHN

The Southern Adelaide Local Health Network (SALHN) offers a range of rehabilitation options, both in hospital and the community. View more information about SALHN's Inpatient Rehabilitation Services and Rehabilitation Outpatient Clinics.

If you have had a major illness, injury or surgery, you may find it difficult to return to the way you previously lived. Whether it’s your mobility, ability to communicate or wellbeing that is affected, your everyday life can be impacted by your new health status.

Rehabilitation can help you to be more independent. It can improve your ability to lead a more active, mobile life and it can enable you to adjust to new ways of doing things.

Our rehabilitation services provide a range of care and recovery options. Health professionals with different areas of expertise work with you based on your individual needs, and help you to establish realistic rehabilitation goals.

Rehabilitation services can be offered in a range of locations depending on your individual needs, and are designed to meet the needs of different age groups and people with different medical conditions.
