It is our task to operate the inpatient ward and outpatient services of medical rehabilitation for adult patients and to promote medical rehabilitation research and positive thinking about rehabilitation.
Rehabilitation includes different forms of therapy, training on you own and rest. This will support the client in managing his/her everyday life and help to improve quality of life.
The rehabilitation team includes a specialist physician in neurology and a special physician in physiatry, nurse, practical nurse, ward secretary, maintenance worker, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, speech therapist, psychologist, social worker and a rehabilitation counsellor. The team and the patient discuss the goals of the rehabilitation period and plan the follow-up after the rehabilitation period is over.
Weekend leaves from the ward are possible, if allowed by the physician and if they do not hinder the rehabilitation process. Any travels on leaves are paid by the patient. When the patient's function has advanced, we may recommend home treatment practices in order to check how well the patient copes at home. Feedback from family members is welcome.
We are a specialized health care unit, and you will find us in the Kaskenlinna hospital, Turku. The ward rooms, equipped with toilet and shower facilities, are designed for two persons.
In addition to facilities for therapy, we have access to three rehabilitation robots (two walking devices and one device for upper extremity training).
We are a part of the Turku University Hospital Neurocenter.
