Rehabilitation renewal!

Rehabilitation is something many thousands of local people of all ages experience as clients of Dhelkaya Health’s outpatient rehabilitation service.

For Ambulatory Care Manager Alex Culvenor, whose team delivers this service, Dhelkaya Health’s 2024 Equipment Appeal is already making a difference.

The Castlemaine Rouleurs’ Murray to Moyne relay recently funded two new exercise bikes for the rehabilitation service this year. The step-through bike and recumbent bike will help increase the options available for clients of the service who are on the road to recovery.

Alex said: “Whenever we renew equipment we get better designs which are easier for clients to use and enable us to really transform our gyms and treatment spaces. The bikes are a great example of this. However, this time on our wish list is some technology which we haven’t had in the tool kit before.”

Dhelkaya Health’s outpatient rehabilitation is a diverse area of practice offering a full range of treatment services, including in the areas of neurological, musculoskeletal, mobility and balance, cardio pulmonary, cancer rehabilitation and pain management. Key to recovery for clients is integrating care from other Dhelkaya Health services.

Alex said: “New equipment means we can take big steps forward and it it’s also great for the team because it gives staff more ways to approach issues that affect people’s function. We aren’t just helping people recovery from specific injuries, we’re building strength, confidence and independence so people can live their best lives.”

With the Equipment Appeal now underway, Alex is confident that the team’s clients will feel the benefit of the new equipment the appeal will deliver.
