Stroke Rehabilitation Services

The stroke rehabilitation service located at Osborne Park Hospital (OPH) is dedicated to the rehabilitation of stroke survivors. Rehabilitation is often necessary to assist the brain in re-learning skills that have been affected by stroke; the path and timeframe to recovery is different for everyone.

The service has three parts:

Inpatient Rehabilitation Service

Most patients are referred to OPH via Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital (SCGH) as part of their treatment plan. Our doctors also visit SCGH wards and refer patients across to OPH direct. In addition, patients requiring rehabilitation come from across the OPH catchment.

Early Supported Discharge

This vital rehabilitation in the home program gets patients back to their homes much faster with support staff visits three to four times per week, dependant on requirements. Most patients come from the OPH catchment.

Stroke Rehabilitation Clinic

This outpatient program supports our catchment with regular clinic appointments, as well as providing back up for stroke patients who may need to re-visit a service after some time away from OPH.

The Stroke Rehabilitation Service is made up of a multi-disciplinary team of specialists that have highly specialised skills specific to stroke patients. They only work with stroke patients, ensuring that they provide the very best in therapies to deliver the best possible outcomes.

The team consists of:

  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • Physiotherapists
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Speech Therapists
  • Social Workers
  • Dietitians
  • Pharmacists
  • Psychologists
