The Sussex Rehabilitation Centre and provides specialist inpatient neurological rehabilitation to patients that need regular therapy following acute neurological conditions resulting in physical or psychological disabilities. This could include patients who have had a stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal injury, hypoxic brain injury, other degenerative diseases, and cancer diagnosis with neurological impairments.
There is a multi-disciplinary team working with each patient to assess and create treatment plans to maximise their recovery. The teams includes medical staff, nurses, health care assistants, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, a dietitian, a clinical neuropsychologist, social workers, pharmacists.
What to expect while under our care
As an inpatient you will see therapists according to your specific needs and goals, and be cared for by nursing and medical team daily. The average length of stay is 6-8 weeks. The nursing team will care for you 7 days and week, and the therapy staff work Monday – Friday. Within this time you will set goals with the team, and have regular meetings to review your progress and further plans for rehabilitation and discharge.
