Community rehabilitation

The Community Rehabilitation Service is made up of a team of specialists who work with anyone over 16 who needs rehabilitation. We will work with people and their families to improve their independence, irrespective of their diagnosis. We also work closely with Social Services.

Care can be provided in people’s homes, a day hospital, residential or nursing homes, and clinics.
