Rehabilitation is defined as a process of assessment, treatment and management whereby the individual is supported to achieve their maximum potential for physical, cognitive, social and psychological function, participation in society and quality of living.
Rehabilitation is a goal-directed process which reduces the impact of long-term conditions on daily life.
It can help the injured person and their family cope with any disabilities that have arisen or those that may arise in the future.
Specialist neuro-rehabilitation is the total active care of those with a disabling condition and their families, by a multidisciplinary team (MDT) who have undergone specialist training in neurological rehabilitation. The team are supported by a consultant who is trained and accredited in neuro-rehabilitation medicine.
