Wellness & Living with a Disability

Are you looking for something other than traditional therapy approaches?

Over the last few decades, our understanding of who can benefit from rehabilitation has dramatically altered. It is now well accepted in the medical community that people can benefit from specific, targeted therapy many years after an injury.

People ageing with a disability may find their abilities change and functional tasks previously managed with ease get more difficult. Our experienced therapy team will be able to assess your needs and devise a plan of action. This may involve use of equipment, strategies or a specific treatment program designed to achieve your goals.

Body and Brain Fitness Program: For People with Neurological Difficulties

Are you looking for something other than traditional therapy approaches?

Would you like to do something active and social but find it difficult to find a group to suit your needs?

At Rehab on the Move we understand the importance of social interaction and engaging in fun, productive activities. After a brain injury, this becomes even more important and can become a valuable component of rehabilitation.

Research has demonstrated that people with a brain injury are more likely to experience dementia which often occurs earlier in life than the general population.

Rehab on the Move’s Body and Brain Fitness Program has been developed by experienced Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists based on the latest research. Our approach is designed to delay the onset of dementia, improve cognition and promote physical fitness.

  • Assist with the growth and survival of your brain cells
