About Rehabilitation Programmes
Rehabilitation is a set of interventions needed when a person is experiencing or is likely to experience limitations in everyday functioning due to ageing or a health condition, including chronic diseases or disorders, injuries or traumas. Examples of limitations in functioning include difficulties in thinking, seeing, hearing, communicating, moving around, having relationships or keeping a job.
Rehabilitation enables individuals of all ages to maintain or return to their daily life activities, fulfil meaningful life roles and maximize their well-being. Rehabilitation is a highly person-centred health strategy that may be delivered either through specialised rehabilitation programmes (commonly for people with complex needs), or integrated into other health programmes and services, for example, primary health care, mental health, vision and hearing programmes.
