The team at Friends Special works as … a team! While each health professional contributes individually to a person’s rehabilitation through the application of special knowledge and skills, the focus is on the person and the goal is to enable the individual to live as full and independent a lifestyle as possible within his home and community.
We provide comprehensive rehabilitative care for patients who are experiencing a wide range of disabilities including those brought on by a stroke, an accident, joint replacement, lower limb amputation or fractures, or simply by the process of ageing.
Visits by medical professionals to those who have chronic illnesses and who require home nursing as well as caregiver support, training services and advice on related services (such as fitting out the home suitably for those with fallrisks) will be provided under Friends Special. Help for the Senior to remain in his own home is the objective.
Monday to Thursday 8.30am – 5.30pm
Friday 9.00am – 5.30pm
Saturday 8.30am – 12.30pm
