Dorset Rehabilitation Centre started providing rehabilitation care to the residents of Melbourne's greater northwest in the early 1970's.
The team at Dorset Rehabilitation are recognised for contributing to the provision of high quality patient centered care.
Caring for people of all ages, we contribute to the provision of inpatient and outpatient programs with a special emphasis on orthopaedic, cardiac, neurological, trauma rehabilitation and pain management.
We recognise the integral and important role we play as part of our local community. This is reflected in our focus and excellent support programs for our patients, accredited private specialists and referring doctors.
Rehabilitation is the process of restoring a person to their highest level of functioning following injury, surgery or illness. Through re-learning and re-training programs, our patients aim to achieve their maximum strength and function in order to reach their individual goals.
To be able to actively participate in their recovery, patients must be medically stable.
Inpatient rehabilitation is suitable for patients who have a functional incapacity, involving personal or domestic activities of daily living, particularly following recent illness or surgery.
Outpatient rehabilitation is suitable for patients who are independent with personal and domestic activities of daily living and able to care for themselves in their home environment.
During your rehabilitation, we individually tailor and gradually graduate your program as short term goals are achieved, to maximise your independence in pursuit of your long term goal of either returning home or simply getting back on your feet.
Dorset Rehabilitation Centre is committed to contributing to the provision of the very best care to the north-west community of Melbourne and recognise the integral and important role we play as part of our local community.
