How We Can Help

Being compassionate is our objective

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, community, and home environment.

On request our patients can also gain access to the inspirational Walking with Brandon rehabilitation programme within the SSISA building as part of their rehabilitation plan. 

Specialised end-of-life support and care, which include emotional and medical support for patients, and emotional and practical support for families, is also available.  Equipment and assistive device needs can be catered for, and we provide comprehensive out-patient care after a patient is discharged.

We know how important your family and friends are to your health and emotional wellbeing. They form an intrinsic part of your recovery. Visiting hours are flexible and, when possible, we encourage socialising at the hospital.
