If you have had a stroke or a fall, you may feel unsure about whether…
This year, we are delighted to be going one step further for the people of North Canterbury by opening our exciting new rehabilitation hub: the North Canterbury Rehabilitation Centre. Located in rural Ohoka, the centre opened in February 2018 in premises formerly used for residential care.
The Centre is a first for the region and Lucie Hartfield, HPL’s Managing Director, is excited by its potential to meet a real need for patients, particularly those from rural North Canterbury. “There is no other similar facility for people, who need that extra help with rehabilitation, after they have been discharged from hospital.
“We are here for anyone over the age of 18 who has been in hospital but is not quite ready to go home. You could be recovering after a heart attack or stroke, or getting back on your feet after falling and fracturing a hip.”
Our centre is staffed by a clinical nurse manager, registered nurses, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, speech and language therapist, dietitian, rehabilitation assistant, support workers and other support staff.
