Auckland DHB Rehab Plus - Outpatient Rehabilitation
Rehab Plus Outpatient service is dedicated to helping people achieve things that are important to them following a health setback. Our team of health professionals consists of occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, clinical psychologist, dietitian and a social worker.
To access Rehab Plus you require a referral from your GP or other health professional. The service we provide is a short-term and non urgent service, so if you need help quickly please let your GP know.
Rehabilitation aims to maximise the benefits of recovery, as well as assisting you to compensate for any persisting difficulties. We work closely with you and your whanau/family to find out what you can already do and what you potentially could do. We then help you to set goals and work towards these within a limited time frame.
From time to time we also offer groups. This can include upper limb group, high level balance group, fitness group, hydrotherapy, communication group, memory group and stroke education group.
“Optimising Potential through Participation and Partnership”
Our mission statement acknowledges the diverse range of rehabilitation and assessment services that are provided through Rehab Plus. We aim for our services to be delivered in partnership with you and your whanau/family and the community as part of your care.
|Mon – Fri||8:00 AM – 4:30 PM|
Appointments are usually arranged within these hours, and may take place in the clinic, your community or your home.
