Brain Injury Community Rehab
Our in-patient service is complemented by the Brain Injury Community Rehabilitation Team (BICRT) which may be involved in your care after you have completed your in-patient rehabilitation program.
Part of the state-wide NSW Brain Injury Program, BICRT empowers clients with traumatic brain injuries through comprehensive, personalized rehabilitation. With a client-centered approach, our skilled clinicians craft goal-driven programs, focusing on daily life priorities.
A team of experienced experts in adult brain injury, BICRT offers home, community, and Royal Rehab-based programs. Our Rehabilitation Medicine Physicians assess clients for suitability, ensuring tailored care.
Programs encompass cognitive, physical, and functional rehab, emotional wellbeing, and more. Achieving goals within 6 to 12 months, clients often continue improving beyond the program’s end.
Referrals to BICRT require initial assessment by the Rehabilitation Medicine Physician. This requires a medical referral from a General Practitioner, hospital physician or medical specialist.
