Paediatric services (0 – 16 years)
A comprehensive exercise and patient education programme delivered in a medically supportive, sub-acute inpatient setting by a multi-disciplinary team of dedicated staff who specialise in rehabilitation.
The sub-acute patient is someone that requires the services of a coordinated, multi-disciplinary team to design and implement a goal-orientated programme for the patient with the aim to return patients to the community or transition them to a lower level of care. Treatment is usually rendered immediately after, or for certain patient conditions, instead of acute hospitalisation.
Stroke, and other acute brain injury, spinal cord injuries, other central neurological conditions (MS, and Guillain-Barre) as well as other peripheral neuropathies.
*This list is not exhaustive: please contact the facility to discuss any patients with other neurological conditions who you would like to refer to determine suitability for sub-acute rehabilitation*
Sometimes the underlying medical condition has been cured, but the recovery of the body is slow and a general strengthening programme is needed. This is common after intensive care stay, post fall or any other surgery or inpatient hospital stays where the patient’s recovery was delayed or prolonged due to (now treated) acute medical conditions. .Acute medical conditions for example such as intensive care admission or prolonged intensive care stay, post-surgery prolonged stay, post fall or other acute medical conditions (respiratory conditions included) that has now been reversed.
Structured and graded exercise and patient education sessions for patients with the following lung conditions: COPD, Brongiectacis, lung fibrosis and other obstructive or restrictive lung conditions where a recent acute episode suddenly caused a decrease in quality of life and function.
The above list of types of patients who can benefit from inpatient rehabilitation is by no means conclusive. Please contact Sr M Kleynhans (Sub-acute Unit manager), Theo or your treating doctor to discuss any other individual patients not mentioned here that you would like to refer to the sub-acute unit for rehabilitation.

Respiratory care consists of manual mobilisation of secretions, deep breathing exercises, nebulization, fitness programs and general coping strategies.
Please make sure that the therapist explains these modalities and that you are comfortable with the proposed treatment.
