Patient and public pages
You may be a patient having rehabilitation, or about to start; or you may be a family member or friend of someone having or needing rehabilitation; or you may be a healthcare professional who feels uncertain; or you may simply be someone who is curious, a justified curiosity as almost everyone would benefit from rehabilitation at some point in their life.
This part of the site explains rehabilitation for you
This part of the site (will) also contain material to help patients with their rehabilitation. It is not intended to replace or over-rule any advice or information given by a rehabilitation professional, who will know much more about the situation than I can know. It is more focused on general principles and information. Often professionals overlook giving this, or do not have time. Moreover, the information may be given but is forgotten.
The site is still developing, and hopefully its development will be guided and influenced by readers. If you are a patient, the family member of a patient, or indeed anyone else, and you want to suggest things that you would like explained on this site, please use the contact form here to let me know.
Although I sincerely hope and intend that anyone will understand and read all the other pages on the site, I know that many people will feel uncertain. This part of the site offers a non-technical, jargon-free (I hope) introduction to rehabilitation.
Goals in rehabilitation
There is also, within the site, a compendium, which has two parts. The first explains some terms and words that have unusual or specific meaning in rehabilitation. The second is a list of resources, currently almost empty! I hope it will soon have material of help to patients as well as professionals.
