Rehabilitation in the Home (RITH)

Rehabilitation in the Home (RITH)

Rehabilitation programs aim to assist individuals to recover at home.

When you are rehabilitating at home after a hospital stay or surgery, Amplar Health is committed to providing quality healthcare to help you get back on track.

What is rehabilitation in the home?

After surgery, or a lengthy stay in hospital, rehabilitation may typically be required or recommended by your health practitioner. Rehabilitation in the home programs allow you to receive care in your own home*, when it’s clinically appropriate, instead of having your rehabilitation in hospital. This may include physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and nursing. In some cases, domiciliary support, such as personal care, domestic care or meals may also be provided as part of your care. Other allied health services such as dietetics and speech therapy may also be required.

Health conditions we may be able to support:

Where clinically appropriate, we may provide services for individuals with the following health conditions:

  • Heart conditions
  • Muscle and joint issues (including following joint replacement surgery)
  • Neurological conditions such as stroke
  • Chronic lung conditions
  • Reconditioning after a prolonged or serious illness or as part of the aging process
  • Recurrent falls.

What are the advantages of rehabilitation in the home?

Rehabilitation in the home allows you to receive rehabilitation services, where clinically appropriate, in the privacy and comfort of your own home. This means you can have your family, friends and pets around you, and enjoy all the little things that make life more comfortable such as sleeping in your own bed and watching your own TV.

Rehabilitation at home is also more convenient with our program, eliminating the need to travel to any follow-up appointments and spending time sitting in waiting rooms.

How is it funded?

Rehabilitation in the home may be funded under private health insurance. Please contact your health fund to find out if you are eligible.
