Rehab at Home

Head home to rehabilitate instead of staying in hospital inpatient rehabilitation.

What is it?

It’s a support program launched by Remedy Health, designed to make it easier on patients who can recover and rehabilitate after surgery at home instead of in hospital.
Through the program, you can access services like nursing support, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and more.

 

Who’s it for?

If you’re a Westfund Gold or Silver Tier member and have a need for rehabilitation as a direct continuation of your post-surgical treatment, you may be able to take advantage of this program. As long as you’re eligible, have a chat to Remedy Health today on 1300 734 224.
