Rehabilitation Services

Laura Fergusson Rehabilitation (LFR) delivers rehabilitation services that are designed to support the expectations of the individual. We provide services to people who have sustained stroke, neurological diseases, traumatic brain injury, amputation or orthopaedic injuries. The aim of LFR’s rehabilitation services is to restore as much function and independence as possible while at the same time facilitating adjustment to disability, promoting self-determination and valuing quality of life.

How Does Rehabilitation Work?

We begin with a comprehensive assessment to determine the rehabilitation needs of the client. Using this assessment we design individualised rehabilitation plans utilising the International Classification of Functioning and Disability (ICF) framework for designing and providing intervention. Rehabilitation plans are agreed with the client, the client’s family and the funder and then reviewed and reported against a predetermined timeframe. These plans offer active support in adapting to life changes whilst assisting the individual to achieve and maintain quality of life.

Service Principles

LFR’s rehabilitation services are:

  • Holistic, client centred and culturally responsive.
  • Transparent and ethical.
  • Evidence based.
  • Managed by a multidisciplinary team.
  • Outcome focussed and results driven.
  • Flexible, responsive and innovative.
  • Built around sustainable service structures.
  • Designed to optimise independence.
