Physical Rehabilitation therapists
Rita Henn and Partners Inc. (RHP Rehab) is a group therapy practice offering multidisciplinary physical rehabilitation. Our team is made up of Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Speech Therapists.
We tailor-make intensive rehabilitation programmes, giving each individual the opportunity to achieve maximum independence following a traumatic event in their lives. We embrace the philosophy of outcome-based rehabilitation.
RHP Rehab provides a holistic rehabilitation service, where individual treatment sessions are complemented by group therapies, community outings and visits to our patients’ homes where possible, as part of our comprehensive planning and treatment programmes. Once the inpatient rehabilitation programme is complete, we also offer comprehensive outpatient services with the aim of fully re-integrating our patients into their communities, work, school and family lives.
Occupational therapy’s primary aim is to improve independence and participation in all aspects of a person’s life (selfcare, leisure, work, play, social).
Physical therapy (PT), also known as physiotherapy, is one of the allied health professions that remediates impairments and promotes mobility and function.
The psychology team takes care of our patients emotional needs. They offer psychological services in conjunction with the physical rehabilitation process. We believe that emotional recovery and wellbeing plays an important part in the road to holistic recovery. The psychologists offer emotional support to patients, including trauma debriefing, psychotherapy, adjustment support, group support sessions, sexual rehabilitation, and preparation for life after discharge from physical rehabilitation.
The social workers plays an important role in the patient’s process of re-entering the broader community after a life changing experience. They offer individual counselling, group work sessions and assists the patient’s family to come to terms with the condition. The social workers ensure that the patient is discharged to a safe and supportive environment.
