Acute rehabilitation facilities and services


Life Rehabilitation provides quality, cost effective, acute, outcomes driven physical and cognitive rehabilitation for patients affected by stroke, spinal cord injury, brain injury and other disabling conditions.

Operating 265 beds – over two thirds of all private acute rehabilitation beds in South Africa – Life Rehabilitation constitutes a significant portion of the rehabilitation service in the country. We currently have an expanding network of seven facilities in key areas throughout South Africa and provide wide coverage and access to this much needed service. We offer rehabilitation programmes for orthopaedic, paediatric and pulmonary conditions. All of our units listed below are accredited as dedicated rehabilitation facilities according to a strict list of criteria, issued by the Department of Health and the Board of Healthcare Funders.

Our well-equipped facilities are custom designed to ensure appropriate accessibility and optimisation of functional skills retraining and offer accommodation, with integrated living and leisure areas, as well as treatment areas. The gymnasiums and other rehabilitation areas are dedicated for the use of patients in the rehabilitation unit only. Specialised equipment is upgraded on an ongoing basis to ensure that treatment is consistent with international standards.

We believe delivery of world class healthcare is achieved through combined delivery of unparalleled quality and clinical excellence; along with a true focus on the personal needs of its patients and their families. Life Rehabilitation holds a seperate quality certificate for the ISO 9001:2008, and we are the only certificated networked group of rehabilitation units in the country. This certification in quality management systems underpins Life Rehabilitation's commitment and ability to provide our patients with quality, world class rehabilitation services.

All of our rehabilitation units offer similar services, and treatment is rendered by experienced interdisciplinary teams of dedicated medical, nursing and therapy rehabilitation professionals who are focused on ensuring optimal functional progress and independence and maximised clinical outcomes. Our rehabilitation teams have a strong interdisciplinary focus, and make use of both individual and group interventions. The group sessions are supportive and educational, encompassing both physical and cognitive therapies. Individual sessions are centred more around discipline-specific interventions, contributing to the overall aim of achieving interdisciplinary goals.

Each unit has its own identity, making it unique in its individual way. Please click on the relevant units below to find out more about their Life Rehabilitation facilities and to determine which unit will suit your needs best.
