Nurture Hillandale is a hospital designed to meet all your physical rehabilitation needs. When you choose Nurture Hillandale, you are choosing a caring and compassionate team of professionals, a comprehensive range of therapeutic services and a top-notch hospital.
We are in Woodland Hills, Bloemfontein, conveniently placed for Free State residents looking for intensive in-patient rehabilitation.
Here at Nurture Hillandale, we provide hope through compassion, humanity, and expertise during your rehabilitation journey. We exist to help people who have suffered a debilitating accident, or significant illness, return to their optimal functioning.
Our objective is to maximise recovery and patient health gain while achieving the highest level of independence for each of our patients, as cost effectively as possible. We get to work as soon as we can, as early intervention has been proven to show improved function, better patient outcomes and reintegration back into society, the community, and home environment.
Hillandale Hospital provides physical rehabilitation and sub-acute in-patient and out-patient care for people challenged with a wide range of disabilities caused by disease or injuries. Patients undergo a combination of specially designed therapy sessions to suit their specific needs. They receive intensive therapy daily and, depending on their medical condition, this will include home and life management skills training. At Nurture Hillandale, the patient’s family is as important as the patient. Throughout the patient’s hospital stay, we conduct progress meetings with family members to educate them in proper care practice, to ensure a consistently high standard of care, even after discharge.
Training will be provided with carers or patients’ family members prior to discharge, to assist a patient to continue with daily activities at home. In appropriate cases, work assessments will form part of discharge planning to determine whether a patient will be able to return to work. Our social workers will also assist in planning in the case of the patient being unable to return to work. A referral to out-patient services may occur because of a referral from your doctor, a concern of your own for yourself or a loved one, or as part of planned discharge process.
Nurture Hillandale has been designed to promote rehabilitation efficiency, enabling our staff to create a safe, supervised, and structured environment for our patients. All equipment needs can be catered for, and we provide comprehensive out-patient care after a patient is discharged.
Our facilities include: Private and semi-private wards, a well-equipped gym with custom-designed specialised equipment, private cognitive area, private treatment area, occupational therapy kitchen and bathroom, patient dining room, four-bed isolation ward, isolation gym area, and easily accessible gardens and designated smoking areas.
