Rehabilitative care refers to therapy provided by trained therapists (i.e. physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists) to improve one’s post-illness disability and functional impairment so as to optimise his/her activities of daily living (ADLs) and facilitate re-integration to one’s home environment or other long-term care settings. Examples of conditions requiring rehabilitation care after stabilisation of acute issues include brain injury and other neurological conditions (stroke, traumatic injury, Parkinson’s disease etc.), as well as fractures and hip replacements.
If you are recovering from a complicated medical condition and require additional medical and nursing care at a lower intensity (as compared to that provided at the acute hospitals), sub-acute care will be provided. Physiotherapy, occupational and/or speech therapy services may also be provided, to help you regain your physical function to perform everyday activities. Examples of conditions requiring sub-acute care after stabilisation of acute issues are congestive heart failure, ischaemic heart disease, infectious disease conditions including chest infection, skin infection, kidney disease patients and post-operative patients requiring medical and nursing care.
Patients with renal conditions who are discharged from acute hospitals may also receive care and dialysis during their stay in AMK-THKH. These patients will also concurrently receive rehabilitation, medical and nursing care.
Dementia care assist patients with dementia with activity-based care and therapy sessions to engage them and improve their well-being. These patients will also concurrently receive rehabilitation, medical and nursing care.
